    this looks identical to the Climatizer in my `54 coupe, but just going from memory.

    If it is identical, will probably fit most c/k bodies all the way up to the GT's when I think they changed, but without the parts books I can't be certain, I'm sure others will know. your's looks to be in great condition. cheers, junior

      12-volt would be for '55 or later. It does fit inside the right front fender of cars with the vent intake in the fender but, whether that's a C/K or sedan fit might depend on the length of the bracket. I don't have the catalogs handy; maybe someone does.

        It would most likely be for a later Hawk or a GT Hawk up to but not including 63. The fact that it has two wires would most likely make it for after fifty eight, earlier versions used one wire, and had a resistor in the switch.

          Sorry, I totally neglected the fact that the OP said 12VOLT...I was more focused on the housing and mounting bracket. cheers, junior

            Thanks for the information. I can not find the assembly pictured in a parts book or shop manual If it for a 1958-1962 C K, I can not find a part number for it. It has CLIMATIZER stamped on the housing and 12V on the motor. It has a NOS type wire on it but the tag is missing.

              You will find it in the BODY Parts Catalog in Accessories Section which is what it is.

              When you say "the Tag is missing", does that mean a Studebaker Part Number Tag for a NOS unit?
              Yes it appears to be the long bracket type for a C or K probably a '62 with a two speed motor with 2 wires.

              Does it appear NOS or re-painted?

                It is NOS and sold. I still do not have a part number. Plate AC-3 item AC1-22 for 1959-1962 C-K does not look like it.

                  As Brad said since it is two wires it has to be GT hawk, my 61 still has one wire, I do not remember if they changed in 62 or 63
