  • Engine: Shop Manuals

    I have a '63 Wagonaire. Any suggestions on shop manuals? I've seen a couple different ones online. Thanks

    Steve, contact any of the Studebaker vendors ( There are 3 manuals for your car (Shop manual, chassis parts catalog and body parts catalog). You really should have all three. They are also available on CD.

    '56 Golden Hawk (3 speed/overdrive, Power steering - Running, but not yet driving)
    '62 GT Hawk (4 speed, A/C, Power steering - running and DRIVING!)

      I have both paper and c/d. I suggest the c/d, you can print the section you want and if it gets damaged, print another!- Jim

          It's been reported that, while the CD-ROM version includes all three on one disc and is incredibly cheaper, it also has lost some of its resolution from the printed copy.
          Just a heads up.

            I have original and repo paper manuals and also the CD version, maybe I am old but there is something about paging through a "real" manual that allows me to find "stuff" a little quicker. Maybe buy the CD first, see how you like it then start searching for paper versions, they are not all priced the same and I am a CASO As stated earlier you can just print the pages you need from the CD and I have done that and inserted those in a dedicated three ring binder to help with assembly (or assistance to a failed memory or???)

              Yeah, don't skimp! Get ALL the manuals and never look back!!! Studebaker actually did a good job with theirs. Some current companies could learn from them.
