          OK, I am not good with numbers or charts. In the early 90's, I bought a complete engine for my coupe while at the York swap meet. When I got home, All I did was put the 'front oil sump '48 oil pan on, distributor, manifold, and carb and I was in business. After all these years, I finally got around to looking at the serial number on the block. It is 1009990. Any of you number Gurus know what it is?[8D]

            My guess is '53 Champion, when it gets into the millions, 7 digits, I get lost too! [B)]

            I wrote the number on a small note paper and matched it up to the list, and that's what I got. [:0]

              Thanks Rich! So I guess that makes it a 170? I had planned on rebuilding the engine I removed, but I was able to buy this one for a couple of hundred less than the parts would have cost for the rebuild. Another big factor was the competence of the mechanic doing the work. I only see him when I look in the mirror.

                  That's a '62 V8[^]

                  1957 Transtar 1/2ton
                  1963 Cruiser
                  1960 Larkvertible V8
                  1958 Provincial wagon
                  1953 Commander coupe
                  1957 President two door

                  No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
