So far I have been unsuccessful in locating information relating to the capacities (ie crankcase, fuel tank, radiator, manual gearbox, etc) for a '62 Hawk.

Any help would be most appreciated.

18 gallon gas tank, 5Qt oil pan. (maybe a bit more if you've got a Full-flo oil filter or a cannister type filter), Standard tranny - 3.2 pints (W O/D 3.4 pints), cooling system 17qts. Ya really need a shop manual, which has all such info.;)

I would highly recommend getting a copy of the '59-'64 shop and parts manuals. These are available thru most Studebaker vendors. All of the manuals are available on one CD-Rom disk for $25 from Classic Manuals.

As for the capacities;

Cooling System: 17 Quarts*
*Add 1 1/2 Qrts for Hawks with Climatizer
Gas Tank: 18 Gallons
Oil: 5 Qrts
Rear Axle: 3 Pints
4 Speed: 2.5 Pints
Flight-O-Matic: 18 Pints

Good luck with the 'new' car.

p.s., Bob is fast...:D

Thanks for the info and recommendation, guys. I just picked up an Owners Manual for it on Ebay...that'll help a little, I hope.

Now, to get a shop manual. Finally!......I have a car I can actually work on:D

Your wish is my command :) Right now my 'baby' is buried beneath a foot of freshly fallen snow, but here is a pic from the previous owner, which shows it off quite well.
