This car is listed with the Jet Thrust Roster and productions come from the Studebaker Museum Monograph on Jet Thrust Larks and Hawks. Per a letter from the Studebaker Museum this is documented as only one of 50 Jet Thrust wagons of which only one was a column shift, further it is only 1 of 9 Lark Regal wagons produced with Jet Thrust power.
