If someone can tell me how to post tif photos I'll post some of my 1957 Golden Hawk. It was bought new by the sheriff of Larimer County, Wyoming and had really been rode hard when I bought it. I owned it for about ten years, eight of which were spent on redoing the engine, transmission, etc. Finally had a friend finish the body work.

It had a slight curve on the fins and yes, it was a Studebaker through and through (289 supercharged engine). I believe the 1958 was when they were fitted with the Packard engines and were decorated with some of the ugliest attempts at "style" I ever saw - UGH!

Gene the 1956 GH was the only one with the Packard engine. The 1958 GH had the Studebaker 289 with the Paxton supercharger. It is interesting that both the supercharged 289 and the Packard 352 were both rated at 275 HP. There was a 1958 Packard Hawk that was escentially the same car with a different hood and grille and a different deck lid but it also had the 289 engine.

Here is a pic of my 1956 GH. Yes it is on the "to do" list.

Cheers, Dan

Now that you've mentioned it I remember. The truly ugly things were the ones with the Packard label.

Here's another attempt to post a couple of photos of my GH.

I just remembered my '65 Lark SW had a "hill holder", very important in drving the steep streets of Seattle.

Good memory Mike, Studebaker used the hill holder for years. Interestingly my smarts both have hill holders as standard. It really is a nice feature if you live in the hills.

Nice looking Studie Gene.

Cheers, Dan

I'va always admired the good looks of the Hawk and Avanti
thought their appeal is so very different.
Here's some I saw last year at Bonneville:











They've always been popular with the Bonneville crowd.

We took these Stude pic's about two years ago up in northern NV.

Check out that 40 something behind the Pepsi container. I wasn't old enough to legally drive yet but I do remember older kids in our neighborhood used to street race similar looking hot rods where I grew up.

I was thinking the same Mike. If this next one doesn't post bigger let me know and I'll re-try another way. ( I think you can click on this one to enlarge)

When I was REAL young, "Twin H Power" meant the badest of the bad.
