  • engine compartment decals

    Since I've got the low down on the color scheme, does anyone know what decals were in the compartment and their location? Is there any postings of pictures that I can refer to? Thanks.

    Uh, what year and model are we talking about?

      Paul,

      He has an earlier post regarding the engine color on a '64 Cruiser. Since he indicates he now has that info, I suspect we can go forward on the premise it is the same car.

        OK. Thanks. I missed the earlier post- my apology. The decals that were on my '64 Wagonaire (bought it new), were a "Caution Fan" that goes on the shield on top and behind the radiator. Then there was a yellow letter on black paper decal with a battery-alternator warning connection warning which was on the black panel above and behind the grille. On my '64 convertible this warning is on the flat part of the inner fender just above the battery. My wagon was built in Canada and the convertible was built in SB. This might account for the difference. The air cleaner should have a United Dry Air Cleaner decal. The only other underhood tag I had was a paper tag advising that the radiator was filled with Studebaker Antifreeze. All these are available from at least several vendors (Studebakers International and Myer's Studebaker Parts to name two. I'll take pix of both engine compartments tomorrow and post them.

          Don't forget the STP decals on the oil filler caps, and one on the disk brake bottle (if so equipped)

            I knew I should have looked before I answered.

              This is Dad's '64 Daytona hardtop that is just about done, and ready for the road, or maybe eBay...?!
              I'll let him or Mike talk more about the car, as I get all their '64s mixed up and will say the wrong thing about this one...

                Per my post of yesterday, below are pix of the '64 engine compartment decals/labels. The one of the red convertible was very dark so I enhanced it. That distorted some of the colors (especially the oil filler caps). The first picture shows the oil cap STP decals as JDP pointed out yesterday. The second picture (of my '64 Wagonaire shows the metal tag (poorly) on the disk brake master cylinder (round copper tag under the bolt holding on the master cylinder cap). Note that the badly faded, but original battery warning label is on the radiator panel on the wagon and above the battery on the convertible. I don't know if that is where it was originally or not as the car was restored (painted in the engine compartment).

                  Thanks to you all for all the help on the decal placement and the engine colors. I think having this car and being a part of this forum is going to be a lot of fun. Thanks again!!!
