    No!! TWO of a kind!

    Both "Auto Show" cars that were painted identical.

    Hopefully we can see both this one, and Steve's at MCACN in the near future.

ID:	1901935 Some other interesting history. The original dealer invoice at date of purchase.
      I received 3 NOS fenders, among other items, with the car. The front drivers side one showing shipping to the original owners place of business. When was the last time parts like these could be ordered from SASCO?Click image for larger version

              I believe the production order calls for a push button radio. I would expect at least that, if not an FM. The picture shows a plain manual tune radio. I wonder if it was built with that or if it has been changed.

                I bet it was changed at some point. The dealer invoice in Post #17 states "Push B. Radio", meaning it must have sold to George K. Iffland with one.

                      LOL if I was lucky enough to bring this beauty home, my wife would make sure of that...only change nights to weeks!
                      Congratulations and keep us posted on your tinkering and adventures with it.
                      That last photo makes me reeeeally wish either of my GTs had a four speed.

                                Quoted question: "I received 3 NOS fenders, among other items, with the car. The front drivers side one showing shipping to the original owners place of business. When was the last time parts like these could be ordered from SASCO?"

                                SASCO (the Automotive Parts & Service "end" of Studebaker-Worthington Corporation, that is) ceased to exist in 1972, Robert.
                                Again, a nice car and highly historical as to importance. Take good care of it! BP
                                We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                                Ayn Rand:
                                "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                                G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
