  • Daytona Numerology

    Perhaps some of our resident number crunchers can have a look at these and tell me a little about my 1964 Daytona convertible's assembly...

    Sure, it's a 64 model convertible, built in South Bend and has an engine that was built on October 9th of 1963. It was the 10,234th V8 car of the 1964s to leave the SB production line and it wears the 198th V8 convertible body that was welded up.[^]

    Miscreant adrift in
    the BerStuda Triangle


    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        Additional information can be obtained by ordering a production order from the Studebaker National Museum

            Amazing - thanks Mr.Biggs! Did Studebaker usually launch their new year's production around the same date for each model year? Does 10,234th place this car near the end of the 1964 run? Just wondering how near the end of South Bend production this car would have been?

                You'll need the build sheet from the Studebaker museum for that. All those number will tell you is that the car was about the 200th body built and was in the middle of the short production year.

                    Thanks Brad. Yes, I should get production orders from the museum for both of our cars.

                        I declare: SDC should reprint the July 1986 Turning Wheels and sell 'em for $20 each! [^][8D]

                        Therein we learn that 64V11235 was a 1964 Daytona Convertible with body #299 and engine #VK309, so it looks like this one is "so far, so good!" []

                        64V11235 was shipped to New York State.

                        It was originally Golden Sand with black vinyl bench-seat interior and top.

                        Options included:

                        (19) Column-Shift Flightomatic
                        (38) Power Steering
                        (51) Whitewall Tires
                        (60) Climatizer
                        (66) Push-Button AM Radio w/ Manual Cowl Antenna
                        (70) Undercoating
                        (71) Front Bumper Guards
                        (72) Rear Bumper Guards
                        (79) Wheel Discs
                        (81) Front Seat Belts

                        Cheers, Allan! Hope it's in nice shape! BP

                            Thanks Bob. That's my car. That confirms what the seller told me - that the car was originally Desert Sand and sold to New York State and then came to Canada via Quebec to Ontario. It's kind of headed on a slow circle back to South Bend isn't it? Must be the homing instinct!
                            The car safetied with no problems. A fair bit of that original undercoating is still on there. I have a carb kit ordered and will be putting the old spit shine to her.
