1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk-  This Raymond Loewy designed Golden Hawk is in exceptional condition.  Check out the very straight body on both sides and the exceptional paint.  The chrome is excellent as well.  The golden interior is excellent and is correct in every detail -- as well as the door panels with the proper seat belt holders.   Check out the perfect original dash and instruments. The speedo shows 23. 84- however I have no way to guarantee its accuracy.             The Hawk was introduced in 1956 with a heavy Studebaker engine.  In 1957 a lighter engine was developed by Studebaker with a belt-driven McCullough supercharger .  The 289 -cu inch V-8 is a very strong engine and moves along "quickly".  Check out the top end of the speedometer in the pictures. This particular Hawk has the original factory undercoating on the frame and has aged with no rust.   The pictures speak for themselves.    Questions?  call Robert at 314-330-0877 or email  thru eBay. Thanks for looking.

My mistake-- The lighter engine was developed in 1951 not 1957.   Although Packard owned Studebaker in 57.  the Golden Hawk was chosen for the lighter Studebaker motor.  

On Jul-02-14 at 09:48:35 PDT. seller added the following information:

To further explain and clarify the engine statement above-- the following was sent to me by an expert on the subject.   I want to be very clear as to the history of the production of the engine for the Golden Hawk " 1956 Golden Hawk was powered by the heavy. 352-cu-in. . 275-hp. non-supercharged PACKARD engine. After the Studebaker-Packard merger. poroduction of this engine ceased in '56. To replace it. Studebaker developed a 289-cu-in. . 275-hp SUPERCHARGED STUDEBAKER engine. Yes. the roots of this engine went back to 1951. when Studebaker introduced a 232-cu-in. . 120-hp V-8 engine. The '57 Golden Hawk engine was an ULTIMATE evolution of that engine. And true. the Studebaker V-8 was lighter than the Packard V-8; but addition of a supercharger pretty much canceled out that advantage. "
