    I believe you're correct Bob. My assistant wanted an AM/FM radio for her 66 and we ordered it from South Bend and installed it here.

      Good Luck with your inquiry! They should be displayed with the actual vehicle they commissioned.

          I wonder what the story is how this person got those papers , like who he got them from . You would think they had to come through an X employee maybe ?

            Maybe 58PackardWagon might be willing to disclose this once he is able to find the buyer. They should have been in the archives file at the Museum.

              Stu, is it possible that Z.A. Zentzinger? noted at the top of the mimeographed purple page as receiving this page on Mar. 10, 1966 could be the recipient and keeper of this pile of Doc's? Do you know his/her capacity?

              Of course it WAS written to K. Bottrell, maybe his secretary?

              This is one of the most memorable "finds' of Studebaker History, and certainly the most current.

                The seller has some Studebaker Retirement Insurance paperwork for sale, also. The employee's last name is Kidd. Could he have had the other material at one time as well?

                  Not an "option booklet", but my copy of the "1966 Accessories" booklet (printed in the USA; no PD number) has an AM/FM radio listed as an accessory for 1966 models.

                    Re above, I also found that information in my collection of 1966 literature.

                    I noticed also that seat belts were a delete option "DO" (Delete option. Will be furnished at extra cost unless order states to omit)

                    I am not sure how accurate the information is for the last few months of sales as my Cruiser, built in February 1966, did not appear to have a clock and that was listed as a "Standard Item" however it could have been removed and a "Studebaker of Canada delete plate inserted". The Facts and Features booklet also states "To continue its program of quality and design improvement the manufacturer reserves the right to change specifications, design or prices at any time without notice and without incurring obligations."

                      I noticed that too. I did a search a person with that name passed away in South Bend in 1975.

                          Sorry if you can't read these but the top one (white) shows all options , manual radio was option #65 and push button was #66
                          ....the green one is option pricing ...manual radio was $56.55 and push button was $64.49
                          neither one has no mention of a FM radio.
                          ...I also have the booklet with a pic of a FM radio , but I have yet to see and information on a order sheet or price sheet of cost or # for one.

                            Ted Zenzinger was a senior member of the executive team in the Studebaker Automotive Division and was based in South Bend. Ken Bottrell was a production supervisor based in the Hamilton plant. I knew both well.

                              My recollection is that it cost about $100.

                                The seller bought all of this stuff years ago at an estate sale in Indiana. He has passed all of my contact info along to the buyer. I wait with anticipation.
