The long and sleek look of this 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk reminds
you that some of the best cars from the best classic era didn't
always come from the big three. So if you're looking for true
vintage style with rarity and distinction guaranteed, take a look
at this V8 coupe.
This was the first year for the now-famous Golden Hawk. This came
from the studio of Raymond Loewy, one of the most celebrated
industrial designers of all time. So you have an artful look with
the contoured hood, wraparound rear glass, and crisply-formed
tailfins. The full trim package is in place and so you can see how
this gives a clean dividing line for the classic two-tone paint.
The white and metallic gray is a good-looking color combo. So while
you'll likely update the overall finish, we bet you'll still keep
this duo. In fact, while this car is priced to make sure there's
room in your budget for personalization, there's also a lot to
already love in the details. Everything from the subtle hood scoop
to the classic wheel covers give the impression of a clean and
complete classic from day one.
Just like the exterior, the interior is an attractive white and
gray. This was restored later in life with added comfort in mind.
That's why you have nice cloth inserts in the two-tone seats, and
there's even a movable cup holder center console in-between. The
radio is now an AM/FM/CD unit with Bluetooth. So you can roll down
all the windows on this hardtop and crank up your favorite driving
music. The machine-turned dash, toggle switches, and
aircraft-inspired dials give this a sporty feel. And the added tach
goes well with the floor shifter.
Under the hood is a V8. This was the ideal car for a motor like
this because a grand touring machine deserves the V8. So it's the
kind of powerhouse that will really hum once it's dialed-in
correctly. And features like power steering and a three-speed
manual transmission give this coupe the right mix of driver fun and
Stylish, complete, and affordable - this first-ever Golden Hawk has
a lot of appeal. So if you're looking for a way to have fun and
distinction, don't miss this Studebaker. Call now!
