    I agree that emblem would look great on Your '64....but I don't believe Studebaker used it on the '64 models

    Don't believe what anyone has said. TT stands for Tarmac Terror.

    I always tell the Chevy fans that "TT" is an upgrade to the "SS" !

    Twin Traction = Positrack
    This is definitely a 'cool' looking emblem!

    An easier way is to remove the plug and stick your finger in the hole, if it stops at the first digit you've got a twin trac.
    I think you might have meant "first knuckle".

    Then jack up one rear wheel off the ground. If the tire spins, its not function properly, or its been removed.

    After crawling around under the car, there is not much left that is Studebaker anymore. I'll post some pictures soon.

    MY MY...there's a statement worth quoting!

    Something us "CASO'S" consider the ultimate way to acquire a car!

    It it's a 44 (and no one has spuriously removed them), there will be a set of tags on the differential cover, like so:

    As you can see (under all that grease and road grime!) there are 3 tags on a Twin-Traction rear end. One contains the Twin-Traction identification and lubrication instructions, another the ratio, and the last an ID number. If you have these, you've got a closed rear end.

    One major clue would be the Tapered Axles with the tiny "Hat" shaped spacer floating on the inboard ends of the Axles on all TT's.

    I am pretty sure there were a few makes that had them, like Chrysler Products, but quite a ways back and may not have been in Dana 44's.
    Jeeps would be a lot narrower.

    Even the Ratios are peculiar to Studebaker: 3.07, 3.31, 3.54, 3.73, 3.92, 4.09, 4.27, 4.56 and 4.88

    I remember seeing one of those emblems on a Tucker Torpedo in the Nethercutt museum in LA a few years ago. Made me laugh!
