For Sale: 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

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 easy cruising.

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!
