    Don't know how they do it where you live. But in those days Calif. license plates came out every so once in a while. The cam with the date that design was issued. And everybody had to get them. Your old plates were no good anymore. Then every year when you renewed, you got a small metal tab that went on over the date on your rear license plate. Much as now you get a sticker for the rear plate. So, yes that plate is of the kind first released in 1951. And looks just like all the front plates on California cars in 1955.

    that is correct. ALL cali cars registered 1951 thru december 1955 used the 1951 plates.
    and ALL cali cars registered january 1956 thru december 1962 used the 1956 plates.
    yearly updates (tab/sticker) were added only to the rear plate.
    (things have changed slightly since then)...

    Why did it have to be early? I had a 63 Galaxy with that roof. IIRC You could choose that or the fastback.

  8. I think the supposition was that it was an early model with the square roof as the fastback roofline model was a 1963 1/2 model release, much like the Mustang was a 1964 1/2 as it was released later in that year. Although, once the 1963 1/2 model was released, one had a choice of which style Galaxy they wanted.

    From beginning of It's a Mad x4 World, watch the opening credits for a list of all the comedians alive in '63, they're all in it, if only in cameo.

    I like the glider launcher idea, but wouldn't you have to have something that would really, really pull the cable quickly? I saw them cable launch gliders at Torrey Pines (over the world famous Black's Beach) several times and that gizmo really shot the gliders up in the air quickly, as in hole-shot fast. Think this one is up to the task? Gary

    Looks similar to a truck mounted device used at Harris Hill glider port near Elmira, NY. Gliders were winched into the prevailing wind toward the edge of a plateau. Now they use an old crop duster.

    Guy started a thread a few weeks ago about a similar car he had just bought. Couldn't find the thread. 26805206_2021330914817672_1774369997180832119_n.jpg

    I really appreciate all of the Studebaker pictures lately. Lots of good ones that I had not seen previously. Thanks.
