No, this page is not really related to the restoration project - but I wanted to provide access to a few of the neat Champ literature items collected over the years. I hope they provide some enjoyment!

The top item is the cover of the owner’s manual (Studebaker referred to it as an Operator’s Guide) for the 8E trucks. Just above is the cover of an earlier Champ and Transtar Accessory guide.

Here’s a few newspaper ad  for a 1963 Champ pickup, by the dealership that sold my truck when new (click on image to bring up larger version…..):

 (OK, they are not “original” ads, but were made from an original Studebaker advertising mat for the 1963 Champ trucks, and the dealer name was photo- shopped in. Thanks to Ray F. for the help in getting me started on the photo- shopping, and to Richard Quinn for the name/address of the Greensboro dealer.)
