    Thank you for the mention, Bill, I appreciate it.
    As usual, I'm a little late to the party.
    The car was last registered with me by Wallace Kidd of Easton PA. He sold the car in 2010 and that was the last I knew of it.
    Serial 6032771, Body 3302, Engine S3788, Paint P5634 ROMANY RED/SNOWCAP WHITE.

    Anthony, I hope you will contact me.
    Frank A.

    If the S/N is 603----.the car was assembled in South Bend and not Vernon (LA), as some 56 GHs were.
    You can get a production order with more information about your particular car from the SNM.

    Anthony: If you have the car and are interested in historical trivia about them, you'll want to visit The Studebaker National Museum store and buy the new 1956-1958 Studebaker Golden Hawk and Packard Hawk Monologue they just published. Click to enlarge:

    With one of those, you could easily decode your tags and dozens of other curiosities you'll run across.

    Your Body Tag is decoded thus:

    56 = 1956 model year car
    J = model designation; Golden Hawk
    K = body style; 2-door hardtop
    7 = trim level; premium
    3302 = the 3,302nd 1956 Golden Hawk body welded up

    The center photo has casting numbers that don't mean much other than to the guys in the foundry

    I can't read all of the Serial Number Plate, but can read the numbers 032771. There's probably a 6 in front of the zero. That is the car's sequential legal identifier for titling, ownership, and registration purposes.

    started a topic Body / Glass: 56 Golden Hawk numbers

    56 Golden Hawk numbers

    Hello Everyone,

    I am currently working on my 1956 Golden Hawk, and was wondering what information could be gathered by all the body numbers on the car.

    I also have the VIN if that is needed.

    The numbers I am referring are located on the firewall, door and intake. (pictures below)
