An Interesting 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk This 1956 Golden Hawk has had an interesting and unique history. It was bought about 5 years ago from the attorney who represented the previous owner of Richmond International Raceway. (RIR). It was stated that the original intention was to open a museum featuring unique cars in America but. with the death of the RIR owner. the plans were shelved and RIR was sold. Shortly after the car was purchased. a complete frame off restoration was undertaken and virtually every part that would come off. was taken off and restored. refurbished. and or replaced essentially in the same detailed manner of the other museum quality cars. Metal work included the usual rust elimination and included new sub-floor and trunk components from Classic Enterprises. All work done correctly with the highest code of quality. no pop rivets. no short cuts. and no Bondo to cover rust. Some have said that the 1956 Golden Hawk (GH) comes with extra challenges because of its unique parts. expenses. and handling issue. This one adequately addresses these commonly held beliefs. While it looks like any other well done 1956 GH. it handles like a 60's Gran Turismo as it has such a frame that includes. heavy duty front and rear sway bars. disc brakes. and above all. the restorers removed the nose heavy qualities that come along with heavy '56 Packard drive train/weight issue by installing a much lighter rebuilt 289 Studebaker motor/transmission. The same engine that Studebaker used to correct the problem in the 1957 Golden Hawk. As one can see from the pictures. it looks identical to its Packard relative. but once you drive this care you will quickly appreciate this unique beauty even more. The other desirable outcome of the conversion is the ease of maintenance and availability of parts compared to the Packard engine and transmission that present challenges in parts availability and maintenance. particularly the transmission maintenance. One can easily maintain the Studebaker tried and true 289. This car was finished with Dupont Nason Fullthane 2k Polyurathane on top 2K urathane Primer and has a complete Phantom Auto interior. The owner of American Classic Car Sales was surprised to receive this beautiful car as a birthday present from his wife. He has had a very nice time enjoying this car with his family. especially his grandchildren. He has spent more time polishing it than he has driving it. It has been well preserved while in his possession. always covered when stored and only after a thorough cleaning and waxing. It currently needs nothing and is fit for any museum or collection. One of the finest 56 GH's in existence is available for purchase.
