The Hawk line by Studebaker was introduced in 1956 out of South Bend Indiana. What we have here is a Silver Hawk dressed in some Golden Hawk badging. The Silver Hawk was introduced in 1957 as a pillared coupe with a plethora of engine options. This particular Hawk comes out of long term ownership that appears to be in nice mechanical condition traveling a couple hours to our location on consignment. It is fitted with the ""Sweepstakes 289"" V8 and automatic transmission. The paint was done about eight years ago and is an ""OK"" paint job. The interior, dash and gauges all appear to be original. The engine was tuned approximately at that time and starts, idles and runs really nice and smooth. The designs on these cars were so far ahead of their time and still make a statement to this day. This is a get in and drive car. Does not appear to be a leaky or smoky car. lights and gauges work. Do not have much history on the car but there is not a lot out there in collector car world at this price point. Let us know if you have any further questions.
