    Just bought a 1962 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk from a estate sale. It has been setting for a few years and needs some lovin.

      That is a great color for a GT. Plus, no signs of rust in typical areas. Ya got a good one!

        It appears to be a very nice Hawk. Good luck with it.
        To start you off on the right foot, the model is a Gran Turismo Hawk.

            I fixed it....
            My feet and knees are hurting so much, it will be about the only thing I fix today, except maybe a drink.

                4 speed , motor turns but haven't had a chance to really get into it. I don't think it will take much.

                  I added some oil to the cylinders, and motor turns freely, clutch feels good. So changing fluids , flushing fuel system, replacing master cylinder, tires, battery it might be back on the road. I still haven't had a chance to remove tires and inspect brakes , but will when it warms up a little.
                  Can anyone help me with what spec / type the trans and rear diff fluids are? Or a place to find out. Thanks

                      I got 90wt. GL1 through my True Value store. They had to order it for me, but I wasn't in a hurry. That's a very nice GT.

                      I did have to add the friction modifier to the Twin Traction differential though.

                              That is a strange looking hub puller. There should be a nut (reversed) on the axle. It does not look centered/balanced (perhaps the picture).
