Anyone know of a site where you can down load pages of the studebaker body manual. I've looked and can't seem to find one. Really thinking of starting my own hawk web site and put as much stuff as I can find on it that you would be able to down load or look at for free.

A good? idea,but buying manuals from our vendors will help keep them in business-thus,they will be there for us when we go to buy the parts that we look up in those manuals...

The Stude manuals are available on cd & they are cheap compared to the printed ones. Nice too is you print out what you need, get it all greasy & throw it out when your done. Need an alignment-just print it out for whoever does it for you. Easy-breeezy.

I did the CD set, printed everything that had to do with GT HAWKS. . .set it aside, and make copies as needed from them. . .what I am looking for is COLOR sets for making sure that the colors are right on body parts. . .hinges, door hardware, misc things like what color is the rod that holds up the hood. . .black or silver or the color of what. .

Thanks.

We have them at Studebaker International. A single CD contains all of the books for the vehicle. They are $19.95ea (*except the '59-'64 Lark and Hawk CD which is $24.95. There is also a '56 owners registry manual/authenticity guide/etc. CD which is $11.00)
They are on pages 24 and 25 of the current catalog. The manuals on CD contain the same information that the books do. You can also print off pages as you need them, which is nice so the pages of a book don't get tore up out in the shop.

Ernie,
You're not going to find that info in any factory manual. You can ask here on this forum or wait for the judge at the show to tell you it's wrong.

Well I was so nervous when they judged my car. . funny. . I didn't ask things. . and when I did. . I got the impression I was asking to many questions. . What a day it was so much fun. . and I have taken care of some things already. . other stuff may take a while. .

Generally speaking, if your car is being judged, you don't ask questions, only answer them; learn from the results.

Yes sir, that is what I figured out. . .only two ways to learn. . .experience and wisdom (other peoples experience). . .I got some of both on this my first time out at the SDC International. . .
