  • 1950 starlite coupe workshop manuals?

    Hello

    Can anyone comment on these workshop manuals for 1950 starlite coupes?
    ...........
    47-50 Chassis Parts and Illustrations Manual, 310 pgs by Studebaker including Champion & Commander

    47-50 Body Parts and Illustrations Manual, 180 pgs by Studebaker including Champion & Commander

    50 Shop manual for all Studebaker models, 272 pgs

    51-52 Shop manual for all models, 286 pgs by Studebaker
    ...........

    I want to completely disassemble the body but would like to do it by the book if possible. Any recommendations - if any - on the above titles?

    TIA

    Both chassis and body parts manuals are almost necessary, as is the '50 shop manual. the last, 51-52 won't apply, the 50 is in a league by itself.

    You can do it without the manuals, but once you use them you won't regret having them.

      The manuals are available in two forms. You can get reproduction bound copies just like the originals or you can get them all on one CD-Rom. The paper manuals are $60.00 for all three books as a package deal or $19.95 on CD-Rom.

      Everyone has their favorite way of keeping manuals. Many like having the actual book in their hands and others like me prefer the CD-Rom. You can't go wrong either way. As most vendors list their parts by the Studebaker part number, these are almost mandatory to have.

        thanks for this. Where do I buy the CD rom? I prefer to print out what I need so I don't worry about ruining a printed book...

          oops - one other thing. I also have a 53 starlite coupe. Are they different to the '50 or will the '50 books be accurate for that also?

          thx

            You'll need seperate books/discs for the '53's. There is almost nothing that interchanges between the cars. Go to the Studebaker International website, or just about any other Studebaker vendor and they should carry anything you need. I bought mine from http://www.ClaasicManuals.net, but there appears to be a problem on the website right now.

                Thanks Tom, I actually have a 52 not a 53. you probably think I'm crazy thinking a totally different body style would have the same manual - I just fat fingered the typing last night.

                I emailed http://www.ClassicManuals.net to let them know their db died and also just joined the Stude club.

                Thanks!

                    Hello Brad,
                    I've been collecting various tired Studes - none of them running - to make a good one. I also have International Harvesters, Jaguars an oldsmobile and a plymouth. I need psychological help!
