      No. Only the US-built Cruiser came standard with a V8 in 1964.

        I thought it was 259 standard in US built Daytonas.

            All '64 South Bend Daytonas built for U.S. Sale, all Body Styles, were 259 V8's Standard, with 289 2V, 4V, JT 289, JTS 289, R3 304 or R4 304 Option.

            The Cruiser and Hawk had 289 2V's Standard.

                      I have a 64 Canadian Built Daytona 4 door sedan and ordered the build sheet that lists the options, and the 259 V8 is listed as an option. Therefore I suspect that the 6 cylinder was "standard".

                          Bob, any chance you could post that Build Sheet?

                          Reason I ask is that AFAIK, Studebaker continued the practice of specifying a given car model as being either a Six or V8, with engine options above those basic two definitions if the car was a V8 model.

                          I.e., one did not simply order a "1964 Daytona 4-door" as if it had no engine in it and then specify Six or V8 engine as one of the options. The basic car had to be either a 1964 Daytona Six (64S-Y8 in South Bend format, since that model wasn't built in South Bend ) or a 1964 Daytona V8 (64V-Y8, again in South Bend format).

                          Curious. BP

                            That's right, Bob. Build sheets for my Daytonas all had "8" in the top line. That way Studebaker could talk about the car having a "standard V8", although the base price was higher than the same car with a six-cylinder.

                            Chevrolet did this for decades, too.

                              And it makes sense, too, if you stop to think about it.

                              Otherwise, you would technically be ordering a car without an engine in it, and they generally aren't sold that way! BP
