  • Engine Mystery

    The 1953 Studebaker truck came with a 1954 commander v8, but we cant find a serial number that matches a 54 commander motor. It says it should be a V-282,501 but this engines says V-288,025. I was wondering if anybody would know what type of engine this is.

    This number: V-282,501 is a SERIAL NUMBER - not a model number. V-282501 was THE first '54 Commander V8 that was put together. The next V8 engine for 1954 would've had V-282,502 and so on and so on. YOUR engine was the 5,524th V8 built that year.

    Take that first serial number [282,501] and add 5,524 to it and see what you get.

    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.
