    Is it safe to assume that the bf in your "pbfinc" is for Bryant and Fudge?

    Warren buddy, you might want to make a mental note that there were NO '56, 57 or '58 Flight/Power or Silver Hawk "C" Coupes built in C5 Regal trim! [:0]

    Only '53 to '55 Coupes (C5) and '59-'61 Hawks (C6) came in the Regal, upper level of trim, and the latter had no choice like the early "C" coupes did.

    Thanks to all of you for the info. It had a 350 chevy engine and a 9" rear end, I'm trying to track the history of the car. It was registered in NC in 2001. I will also try to put pictue on here. My Uncle had a Studebaker Dealership in Burkesville, Ky back in the 50's and i always liked this cars.

    56B according to the parts book I have is a Commander series car, V8 powered 259 cubic inch coupe which should make it a Power Hawk. The C3 indicates a deluxe interior verses the fancier regal interior which would be a C5. I found this site also that should give you more information http://www.1956goldenhawk.com/diffhawk.htm

    the plate is 56B-C3 1297
    It is a 1956 Power Hawk, it should have a Commander 259 V-8 Engine, a Flight Hawk would be a 6 Cyl. a 56G-C3

    You have the 1297th Power Hawk BODY, [u]not car</u>, built in '56 at the South Bend, IN Plant.

    If it has survived the years well, this is a GREAT model! Congrats! [^]

    The 56B identifies the car as a 1956 Commander series. The C makes it a Hawk coupe. Therefore, the car is a 1956 Power Hawk coupe. The 3 is the trim level.
    There were 7095 of these built.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    The body plate on the firewall (under hood passenger side) will identify your precise model and trim level. Post it here and you'll find out quick.

    With the Serial Number you can obtain a copy of the original Production Order from the Studebaker National Museum.

    As to the history?

    Personal research.

    I do hope you have, or will be joining the SDC.

    More resources here than you can shake a stick at, and an outstanding monthly magazine TURNING WHEELS, with links to parts, tech and history.

    Whereabouts are you located? Your Forum profile doesn't even list a state![V]
    Local SDC Chapter members are eager to assist.
