    1962 Lark 4 door wagon. On my firewall there is a rough tin plate held on by two screws that reads in letters about 1/2" high 62V-P4. On a separate plate is the number 7538. On the door jamb is an aluminum VIN plate with the code 62VC 3322. Can anyone decode these for me?
    Thanks

    Body plate - 1962 model year, V8 engine, Deluxe four door wagon, the number just relates to the order that the body was welded up (not sure about Hamilton numbering).
    Serial Number - 1962 model year, V8, assembled in Hamilton (Canada), the 2322nd S/N for 1962 Hamilton V8s.

      Really about all you can learn of any significance from the Serial Number Plate (Stainless Steel) and the Body Tag, that you cannot easily SEE and May not know, is that it is a P4 Deluxe Lower Trim level Wagon, not a Top of the Line P6 Regal.

      That is why, when we really want to know details, we order the Production Order from the Studebaker National Museum.

        I will be talking to Andrew Beckman from the museum later in April if and when the museum reopens. I will ask him about the Production Order.

          If you don’t won’t to wait, PO can be ordered through the museums online store. I am guessing they are still keeping that part open. Good luck.
