Very nice all original 1959 Studebaker Silver Hawk nearly completely restored and is rust free having sat in garage for last 20 years and under rain-x car cover since I bought it last summer.  The Tiger is not included but if I win lotto I will have it painted on and keep car.  Engine runs smooth has been rebuilt with receipts and hardly driven since rebuild. New battery with 3 yr replacement 5 yr pro rated warranty and new rebuilt water pump. Carpet. headliner. upolstery. dash pad all redone. Aluminum dash. very Studadelic ! The Silver Hawks were just one of few cars from this era that were aero dynamically designed for fuel economy. This car has 3 spd. on column with over drive and had a estimated 20+ mpg off the lot. Been told can get between 25 to 30 mpg depending how heavy ones foot is on gas pedal. Like new red paint with minor touch up needed in a few spots and some of trim and emblems needing to be put back on and windshields put back in {currently taped on}. Many new parts in box and extra parts. Have 4 of the S hub caps and 2 of the Coat of Arms hubcaps. Front headlight chrome covers have very intricate one of a kind patina pattern. Have 3 manuals. Shop Manual covering '59 to '64 models. Chassis Parts manual covering '59 to '62 and Body Parts manual covering '59 to '62 models. Odometer reads 08939 and previous original owner said it has 108939 on chassis only a 100 or so since rebuild. 6 cyl models with only 2. 17 made and in this condition over twice as rare as 8 cyl models. 1959 Studebaker Silver Hawk Specification and ProductionModel NumberBody Type & SeatingFactory PriceShipping WeightTotal ProductionSilver Hawk Series - 120. 5 in. wheelbase-Silver Hawk Coupe (6 cylinder)$2. 602. 95 lbs2. 17-Silver Hawk Coupe (V8)$2. 953. 40 lbs5. 71

Silver Hawk Brief History 

For 1959. the Silver Hawk became the only Hawk model in production. largely because Studebaker dealers wanted a glamorous flagship model as a dealership draw. Those customers would more than likely walk out with Studebaker's last-ditch hope. the new Lark compact. In fact. the Silver Hawk was the only non-Lark model kept.

Changes for 1959 included new tailfins. with the "Silver Hawk" script moved to the fins instead of on the trunk lid (where new individual block letters spelling out STUDEBAKER were placed). with a new Hawk badge in between the two words. The parking lights moved to the side grilles from the front fenders. chrome moldings around the windows (from the 1953–1954 models) similar to the Golden Hawk were added. and the interior was somewhere in between the two former models' levels of luxury. Two-tone paint was discontinued for all U. S. orders. though it was still available for export.

1960 Studebaker Hawk. export model with the 259 V8

Under the hood (at least for U. S. models). buyers could choose the newly-shrunken (to pre-'55 size) 90 HP 169. 6 cu. in. (2. 8L) six or the 259 cu. in. (4. 2L) V8 of 180 or 195 HP (depending on the choice of carburetor). The 289 was no longer available.

The 1959 model year was Studebaker's first profitable year in six years. thanks mostly to the Lark. and the rising tide of sales lifted the Silver Hawk. which sold 7. 88 cars.

For 1960. Studebaker dropped the Silver part of the name. leaving "just plain" Hawk. Largely unchanged externally from the 1959. internally. the major change was the return of the 289 cubic inch (4. 7 L) V8 last used in 1958. This was the only engine available for U. S. orders in both 1960 and 1961. the last year of the finned Hawk. Some six-cylinder and 259 cu in (4. 2 L) V8 models were built for export markets.
