The 1956 Golden Hawk was a real Hot Rod in it's day with a top speed of 130mph in a straight line. They were not known for great cornering at high speed. However if you just want to drive at a reasonable clip. the car will handle just fine.

I am selling this car on behalf of a friend of mine. See my other listings for other Studebaker's from this private collection.

This has been very nicely restored 5 to 10 years ago and has been set up for driving and to give you years of trouble free motoring.

1956 Golden Hawks are quite a rare car and this particular car is fully loaded with all the great options and a few excellent upgrades. Thankfully. this car has power steering. as a lot of them don't and are a bit of a bear to drive without it. as the Packard motor weighs about as much as a ships anchor.  

Repainted in the original colors of Snow Cap White over Ceramic Green the car looks stunning. There are some marks and chips in the paint work.

Factory options include :-

Power BrakesPower SteeringPower WindowsPower SeatsTinted GlassClimitizer - under floor heater. 3. 73 Twin Traction Differential. RadioClock

 Modifications include :-

Turner disc Brakes replacing the front drums. Dave Theibault Rear Sway BarAlternator replaces the original Generator

New Exhaust and Shock absorbers. Rebuilt Front End. reconditioned radiator. Tires are all excellent with the whitewalls turned inwards.

Rebuilt Packard motor coupled with a mid 70's Cadillac  TH400 automatic transmission with a power shift selector. In order to mount the Avanti style Power Shift automatic selector. the front seat has been modified from original as pictured.

The rebuilt motor is strong and sounds as smooth as silk. It shifts directly and beautifully with the automatic transmission.

Interior wise the car has been fully retrimed in the original pattern of green and silver with white piping giving a striking look.

There is evidence of metal patched rust repair under the front  driver and passenger footwell. the rear corners of the trunk floor and the lower rear quarter window area in the floor.

The repairs are not visual and both doors. front and rear fenders appear rust free.

The previous long term San Francisco owner of this car had 15 Studebaker's in his collection. all of which are similar to this car. All cars had nice options. span >  retrimed interiors. recognized Studebaker upgrades and had a ton of money piled into them mechanically.

Noted Problem areas :-

Fuel Gauge is not working. so the sender unit in the tank probably needs replacing or it has a bad earth. Clock is not working. Tachometer is not working due to the sender unit not being present.

You certainly could not restore one for the money asked to get anywhere near the quality of this vehicle. It  is a great car to drive and attracts a lot of attention.
