An Index to Service Information for 1951-54 (24th->54th Series) Packards

An Index to Service Information for
1951-54 (24th->54th Series) Packards


Research and Introductions by Brian Harpst
MAIN SERVICE INDEX
     ~1951-54 (24TH->54TH SERIES)

Introduction

The 24th Series presented an all-new line of models. Traditional model nomenclature was dropped in favor of a numeric strata (200, 300, and 400), but more evocative names would eventually prevail. Power brakes and power steering were introduced for 1952. Air conditioning returned as a production option in 1953. All of the while, the Ultramatic transmission continued to evolve, culminating with the Gear Start edition in late 1954.

While the shop manual finally achieved a full-bodied format and scope for these vehicles, supplemental service publications went unchanged during this period.

In addition to all the Service Counselors for these models, we have a complete collection of Service Technical Bulletins that were sent to Dealers. However, we're missing all but one of the relevant Zone-only issues from this period:

50T-42 (Zones)51T-36 (Zones)52T-35 (Zones)54T-11 (Zones)
50T-44 (Zones)51T-45 (Zones)52T-38 (Zones)54T-13 (Zones)
50T-47 (Zones)52T-5 (Zones)53T-3 (Zones)54T-14 (Zones)
50T-48 (Zones)52T-8 (Zones)53T-3R (Zones)54T-15 (Zones)
50T-60 (Zones)52T-10 (Zones)53T-14 (Zones)54T-17 (Zones)
51T-3 (Zones)52T-11 (Zones)54T-5 (Zones)54T-18 (Zones)
51T-10 (Zones)52T-20 (Zones)54T-6 (Zones)
51T-14 (Zones)52T-30 (Zones)54T-8 (Zones)
51T-25 (Zones)52T-32 (Zones)54T-10 (Zones)

We're also missing a couple of relevant Studebaker Service Bulletins:

No. 355 (JUN 1960)
No. 358 (OCT 1960)

If you can provide any of these missing documents, please contact the webmaster, and we’ll assimilate that info accordingly. - BH
