It endss very shortly and no bids at the opening price of $9.99. When I was looking for an original manual they alwayss seemed to bring close to $30. The literature seller at Iola wants $35 for one in bad shape. I'd buy this, but I already have a couple now.

I wasn't watching the clock and should have posted this much sooner.

Hi,

Most of the 1950 Champion Manuals I've seen on ebay are reprints. I found this out by winning a bid on one for $12.00 only to see inside that it's a reprint. If one wants a reprint that's NEW, you can buy them from Studebaker International and others.

I wound up bidding and winning at the last second. I figured it was cheap enough to have as a spare, and it is an original. Sometimes a bargain cames and goes with no bids, and then is never listed again, so I figured grab it while I have a chance.
