    You were pretty close. The picture of Larry's car on the Hemmings site I believe was taken when Larry was showing it in Bennington.

      Stu,

      The last I knew Archie's late production 66 wagon is now owned by Jim and Nancy Willette of St. Albans, VT.

        Larry confirms the Wagonaire was built with a 259 and he replaced it with an R1 engine which he took from a 63 Hawk which he parted out. Serial number is 64V11588. The car came from Florida, sold by a Daytona Beach Studebaker dealer. Larry attached the dealer ID as a tribute to Archie, who actually drove the car before he passed away.

          Excellent, Stu; thanks so much. I believe I'll be making some phone calls! <GGG> BP
          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.
