    The engine number is STAMPED at the left front, top, of the engine block (left side of the car, right hand looking under the hood).

    The car is a 259, not 289, unless it is some special fleet car, like a police car (or the engine has been changed). Post the stamped engine number and we will tell you what is in the car.

    Yeah, I wondered about that but the guy seemed to think it was. No matter though because I had a '58 Commander that was a 259 and it was bigger and heavier and it was still a zippy car. How were you able to determine it was a 259. I had no idea how to figure it out? The car is packed in my trailer surrounded by a big compressor and a lot of old ford truck body parts ready to go back home. I am wrapping up a visit with my son here in Douglasville, GA. I probably won't get to really check out the engine # for at least a week or so. Where on the engine is the number I need to look for?

    Welcome to the SDC Forum.. Where at in GA did you find this one?

    Thanks for the welcome... The car was around Newnan just a bit south of Atlanta. It's really no prize but the body is pretty solid. There is stuff missing so it probably isn't worth a true restore but I think it would make a cool little restomod. No rat rod for this one...

    Thanks Frank,

    Sorry about that. I'm having some issues with this old lattop I use on the road. Somehow I missed seeing the post. Maybe it's just my geezer complex showing.

    VIN location...



    Hi Folks,

    I just joined this forum yesterday, I haven't owned a Studebaker for over forty years but I bought one yesterday. It's a 1960 Lark 4dr sedan with a 289 V8 and automatic transmission. It runs and is pretty much rust free but it needs a lot of TLC and detail work.

    Can someone here tell me where the VIN is located on this car? I tried to post this question yesterday but the post does not show so I probably did something wrong.

    Later Folks...

    Dave
