    My mistake (old eyes). It IS PJ318.
    Sebastian, I am missing something; what would have made PJ312 'better"?

    Something's wrong here. An engine number PJ518 would have been a 289 (the P), built in September (the J), in 1965 (the 5), and on the 18th day. That is, a 289 V8 assembled on Sept. 18, 1965. But Studebaker didn't build engines after 1964. Are you sure that isn't a "3" (instead of a 5)?

    I think yours is 289 made on (J)September 5th.

    Too bad it was not PJ312.

    Identifying what I think is a 1964 289

    Is a Studebaker V8 with engine number PJ518 a 1964 289? As I understand the numbering convention, P=289, I don't know what the J means and I think 518=May 18th. Can someone confirm or explain my misunderstanding(s)? Thanks Howard
