    Yes Jeff, I am aware of this documentation but I don't have a copy of it. Unfortunately when I try to print it I can only access a portion of the first image. I can't open the others at all, presumably because they are protected. Any chance you could copy all of it and email it to me as attachments? I'd love to have this in my memorabilia. You can PM me on this if you wish. By the way R.H. 'Bob' Westmore was the Office Manager in Hamilton. I was copied as being a member of the Operating Committee.

    From a trivia standpoint, President Gordon Grundy didn't want to have any promotion on this car but I finally was able to convince him that local media should cover it. As you probably know, that car was driven about 18,000 miles before it was turned over to the City of South Bend for the Studebaker Historical Collection. This was before the Studebaker National Museum became an institution.

    I "cheaped" out, I put in an under dash am/fm converter. Works great but would have preferred and AM/FM radio.

    Although I do know a employee from Hamilton once told me they had a skid of FM radios that quite a few walked away ( sure like to find one of those )
    I wonder how many AM/FM radios made up a skid? I would love one of them, too! <G>

    I have a copy of the three-page "Accessories for 1966" price list, and it lists the AM/FM radio with antenna for $97.94. This is probably the same doc that Gary has. I had a duplicate doc for sale at Reedsville and think I sold it for $2.
    Oops, I was out by $2.06. Shame on me.

    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.

    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.

    My recollection is that it cost about $100.

    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.
    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.

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