  • Build Sheets

    Im kinda new to this, Just wanting to know if a 63 Hawk GT came with a build sheet and if so where it might be in the car.

    The ones I've found have been under the lower, back seat cushions (usually a green carbon copy), but that's NOT a hard, fast rule. You can order a copy of the build sheet for YOUR car from the Studebaker Museum. They have access to most of the postwar build sheet files.

    Miscreant at large.

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        The probability of finding one of them at this late date is about the same as finding a legible, intact paint color sticker under the glove box. BP
        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        Ayn Rand:
        "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

          Miracles happen! The paint sticker on my 33 Rockne is still as clear and legible as the day it was printed.

            As is the one on our 51 Champm coupe, which was really BEYOND rough when we got it. Even so, you can still see and read the paper that says "Maui Blue" on it. The car is bright yeller now. One day, if my uncle will allow it, I'd like to paint it back blue. Maui blue is a good look for a bullet nose. [8D]

              My 1953 coupe still has the paint sticker under the glove box...and there is also a tag under the front seat with a date and materal type.

                Bob,
                I couple years ago I had a 1947 Commander Regal 2 door sedan. It ran, but was weathered and needed complete restoration. Believe it or not, the paint code sticker WAS still on the underside of the tattered glove box!

                  I just removed a front seat from a 1960 Lark, and the remainder of the build sheet and not much of it was under the rubber mat and insulation, under the driver's seat and stuck to the painted floor...brad

                    I was told once that back in the early '70s when availability of build sheets was just becoming known, if you ordered one, they sent you the original and all the copies!

                      That sounds familiar, Dwain. I believe that the thinking was that it would stay with the car after that. Of course, that is not always the case. I know of several cases where I provided much documentation, like original window stickers, with a car and found out from a following owner that none of the items stayed with the car. I have kept copies of some items, but believe that the originals should go with the car.

                      Bob, I have found that if a Studebaker still has its original paint code label, it is almost always still legible. In other words, I think that the printing was better than the glue.

                        Just how does one contact the Museum?
