  • Original City Destination

    I got two of those individual Studebaker "traceabiliy" sheets from the National Museum and while one shows a town for the original delivery of the car in 1955, the other sheets just shows the Destination as "28". Anyone have any cross references to where this may have been?

    My guess is that it is an area of the parking lot where they kept finished cars. Not all had a destination determined at the time the production order was cut.

      Thanks. Sounds like that's it.

        You mentioned it was a "traceabiliy" sheet. If that is the Passenger Car Production Order, than as the other member stated, it may be a lot location .

        Another Studebaker document that may be available is the Drive-Away Shipper. If you can get it, it will show the name and address of the dealer to which the car was shipped, along with the features included on the car.

        A third Studebaker document is the Retail Delivery Card. Its a keypunch card that shows the name and address of the customer who purchased the car, date of purchase, purshaser's occupation, and salesman's name and social security number. I know these cards were used for '64 models, but I'm not sure how many years previously.

            I beleive I got the Driveaway Shipper copy from Dennis Lambert or his assistant when they worked at Standard Surplus. Dennis now owns Sasco. His assistant( I can't recall his name) still worked for Dennis at Sasco when I was there last summer or fall.

            Richard Quinn did some research for me in 2000 and came up with the copy of the Retail Delivery Card. I'm not sure if he found it at the Museum or in the archives.

                That's right. Now I remember: his name is David Spilski. He's the guy who works for Dennis Lambert.

                  Cool! All my build sheet told me is that my car was delivered by rail to San Francisco. Maybe this can help me figure out where it went from there.

                    That would be great if those cards are still around. I know my car was shipped to North Sacramento, but who knows where it went from there?

                        My 1963 GT Hawk was shipped to Lot 154. It was built at the end of the model year. I assumed that no dealer ordered it, and it sat in a lot until a buyer/dealer was found for it?
