  • Parts or donor truck needed - 62 Champ

    I have a 1962 champ that was given to me by my father before he passed away. I was wrecked 13 years ago and I finally am able to start working on it. I am looking for a donor truck or parts. Any help would greatly appreciated. I am sure I should write a laundry list of things I want or need but I really don't even know what that laundry but list would be. Once I figure out how to upload pictures from my iPad to a thread I will. Thank you for any and all help and comments.

    Things to do after you bought that Studebaker. This is found by going to "Studebaker Drivers Club Homepage" at the top of this page.
    Go to "Tech Tips, Specs and Data"
    http://www.studebakervendors.com/
    This will help to find parts, info and what ever else you need.
    All vendors use factory parts numbers when ordering.
    It would behoove you to get:
    A shop manual
    A chassis parts catalog
    A body parts catalog
    http://www.studebaker-info.org/rjvs.html
    More vendor info

    Extensive info to be found here.

      We would have a little better idea what you are facing if we knew which portion was hit or wrecked: Front, Rear, Left or Right Side?

      Mechanical condition; Runs? Brakes out?

        Welcome to the Forum. Nice to see that another Studebaker is in the hands of someone that wants it on the road again. Most parts are available, either new from vendors or used from the many informed people that keep this forum active and fun. Good luck with your truck.

          When you get the time, make sure to enter your information in the 1962 Champ forum registry:

          And thanks for saving another - 1962 was Studebakers best year for Champ production, but being trucks meant not many were taken very good care of...

            It was rearended by a s10 at 60 mph and moved 32 feet up a hill. She hit it on the rear drivers corner. The bed hit the cab and the cab is pushed over the door an 1/8 of inch so I can't even open the drivers door. The bed is a total loss from years of neglect from my father and grandfather. So I know I need a new one. The truck does run and the brakes are good once I add fluid and bleed them. I am also looking to swap out the factory intake for a 4 barrel.

                  I have a short-bed you can have. However, the catch is, you have to come and get it. The body is largely complete, though not perfect.

                    Do do you have pictures by chance?

                      There's an old thread here: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ghlight=frumpy

                      There is lots of surface rust from a lousy repair job. The truck sideswiped something in the past and they did a bondo job rather than actually fix the relatively minor damage. Floors aren't very good, but still there. The VIN plate fell off and I believe is in the glove box. There is no registration. I bought it as a parts truck. Oh, I might have that manifold you are looking for too. In fact, pretty sure it's around either the shop or storage unit... somewhere anyway.
