For Sale: 1958 Studebaker Silver Hawk in Cadillac, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1958 STUDEBAKER SILVER HAWK. THE LAST OF THE AMERICAN REAR FIN CARS. THIS CAR IS STUNNING. IT STILL RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL SWEEPSTAKES 289 V-8 ENGINE. THIS CAR WAS BUILT WITH THE OPTIONAL FOUR BARREL CARBURETOR AND IT IS THE 225 HORSEPOWER VERSION. AS UNUSUAL AS IT IS, THE CAR ALSO RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL CARBURETOR. THE CAR CAN SIT FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME AND IT ALWAYS STARTS ON THE FIRST OR SECOND TRY. THE ENGINE RUNS REALLY STRONG AND THERE ARE NO NOISES, SMOKE OR LEAKS. THE ENGINE WAS REBUILT ABOUT A YEAR AGO AT MURPHYS AUTO RESTORATIONS IN SOUTH NEW JERSEY. IT ALSO RETAINS ITS ORIGINAL FLIGHTOMATIC AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. I BELIEVE THIS CAR HAD AN OVERDRIVE OPTION IN 1958 BUT THIS CAR DOES NOT HAVE THAT OPTION. THE TRANSMISSION HOWEVER SHIFTS SMOOTH WITHOUT ANY ISSUES. THERE IS NOT ANY BANGING INTO GEAR IN FORWARD OR REVERSE. THIS CAR WAS ALSO FITTED WITH THE FACTORY TWIN TRACTION REAR AND IT STILL RETAINS THAT. SINCE MY OWNERSHIP, I HAVE ALSO INSTALLED A NEW BATTERY AND I HAD THE RADIATOR RECORED AS IT HAD A VERY SMALL LEAK THAT I WAS AFRAID WOULD GET WORSE. THE BRAKES FEEL GOOD AS THERE IS PLENTY OF MEAT ON THE SHOES. THE ONLY MECHANICAL ISSUE IT HAS IS THE REAR RIGHT WHEEL CYLINDER IS STARTING TO STICK AND WHEN ITS COLD IT DRAGS A BIT. AFTER A WHILE IT DOES LOOSEN UP. THE EXTERIOR OF THE CAR IS STUNNING TO SAY THE LEAST. THE CAR WAS PAINTED APPROXIMATELY 3 YEARS AGO AND ITS EXCELLENT. THE PAINT IS THICK AND HAS A TON OF CLEAR ON IT. THERE IS NO RUST OR BUBBLES SHOWING AND ALTHOUGH I WOULD NOT CALL IT SHOW QUALITY I WOULD CALL IT SLIGHTLY BELOW. EVEN THE ROCKERS AND REAR LOWER FENDERS DO NOT SHOW ANY SIGNS OF RUST. THE IS LITTLE TO NO OVERSPRAY ON THE CAR AS I BELIEVE IT WAS DISMANTLED AT THAT TIME. WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAR I FELT THE CHROME AND STAINLESS WERE A BIT SHABBY. SO IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS I DID THE FOLLOWING: 1. FRONT BUMPER RECHROMED TO SHOW QUALITY 2. FRONT BUMPERETTES RECHROMED TO SHOW QUALITY 3. FRONT LOWER GRILL SURROUNDS (BOTH SIDES) RECHROMED
