DWAINE SAID ALL STUDES FROM 53 TO 61 WERE ALL THE SAME.
PAGE 18 OF 1995 OCTOBER ISSUE OF TURNING WHEELS SHOWS A 1958 OWNERS MANUAL......ARE THEY ALL THE SAME JUST DIFFERENT FRONT COVERS??
EVEN IF THEY ARE THE SAME INSIDE....THE FRONT COVER IS WHATS IMPORTANT. TO MATCH THE VEHICLE.

I haven't looked at your reference yet but I do know there were different owners manuals printed for domestic and export.

Ha-ha! Here's what I wrote:
"From 1955 to 1961 all car models shared the same owner's manual".
To explain it better, each year did have it's own unique owner's manual, but it was written for the entire car line, sedans, wagons, Hawks. The 1962-64 GT Hawks did get their very own manual as did the Avantis.
Prior to 1955 there were dedicated manuals for each model, Champion, Commander, Land Cruiser, etc.

I know there were also supplements printed for individual models, such as a single page insert for the '55 Speedster dash, and I believe there were separate ones for '63 & earlier convertibles describing the top operation.

Yes, I have. I MAY have a photocopy of it done on the sepia/manilla paper as per the original insert. I'm at work right now, but when I get home, I can find it and scan it.

No, not a special complete manual for Automatic cars, just a Automatic Drive Supplement.

The 1953 "Studebaker Automatic Drive" supplement is eight pages and form number 6-53-35M. There is also the "Studebaker Automatic Drive" sleeve that goes over the sun visor. It is two sided and form number W719. There are also other items, besides the appropriate owner's manual, that were delivered with a'53 (as appropriate), such as the hang tag for the Climatizer, the radio folder and a notice about the care of chrome.
