Studebaker - Birth Certificate - Factory Order

Today, I received my Studebaker's birth certificate from the Studebaker National Museum in South Bend, Indiana. The details:

Factory Order # X21378
Date Written: 02-22-50
Model and Body Type: 9G W3
Paint Number and Color: P 2285 Maui Blue
Trim Number: 7484 Mohair
Accessory Group V.B.
Transmission: OD
Yes to the Hill Holder
Yes to the Wet Air Cleaner (oil bath)
Other special features: Wiper Booster
Date Shipped: 02-27-50

The Champion is no longer Maui Blue, but rather Concord Blue.

I'll take some time to compare the original engine, body and key numbers with what's currently on the car.
