1964 Dealer Codes - Hamilton, Canada

    Here are the sales codes for the 1964 production year Hamilton, Canada built Studebaker cars. These codes are from a factory publication entitled 1964 ORDER GUIDE FOR COMMANDER, DAYTONA, CRUISER, Revised Jan. 1964. There is no traditional PD printing code. This publication, although factory issued, is poorly done and looks to be a 'hurry up' job. The format has penciled entries on a typed form.

    This certainly explains the codes 87 and 162 on the Philadelphia '64s sitting at the Regional office. These codes were in use before South Bend closed and were probably added after the 9-63 publication was released. Interesting, to say the least.
