  • 'What the Shop Manual Won't Tell You' useful for Hawk, too?

    I've been looking at the site for 'What the Shop Manual Won't Tell You' By Stan Gundry.

    Although written for the Avanti, it appears to have a lot that applies to my 59 Silver Hawk.

    Am I correct? If so, is there enough overlap to warrant the $55?

    And might anyone have a used copy to sell to me?

    I have thought about purchasing the book as well and I have an Avanti. Does it really provide $55. worth of need to know useful information?

      I bought it and found it very interesting and so far has been useful on my Avanti. I'm not sure how much crossover there would be to other Studebakers. Someone with more experience will have to comment on that.

        Anything concerning the Body or the Firewall mounted Master cylinder and Pedal System will be of no use, but a lot of Mechanical tips will cross over to Larks and Lark Types, but not so much C&K's or Hawks.
