For Sale: 1957 Studebaker Silver Hawk in Rogers, Minnesota

Vehicle Description

This 1957 Studebaker Silver Hawk is nice sporty 50s classic and is absolutely beautifully frame-off restored! Studebaker's brand new Hawk line debuted in 1956 and was one of the last major projects spearheaded by automotive design aficionado Raymond Loewy (who was later brought back by Studebaker in hopes to reinvigorate the fledgling marque to design the Avanti). In 1957, Studebaker slimmed down its Hawk line, keeping only 2 models, the Sliver Hawk coupe and the Golden Hawk supercharged hardtop. Perhaps the most significant design changes to the '57 Hawks materialized in the new-look rear quarter panels which had iconic rear tailfins, similar to many other American marques that year. Touted in Studebaker's marketing materials as "The Sports Car Your Budget Won't Believe," the Silver Hawks were stylish and sporty, yet practical and affordable. The Silver Hawks which were limited to pillared-coupes were equipped with 289 Studebaker V8s in the United States (with the Canadien versions being sold with 259 V8s). For their price, the Hawks had great performance without sacrificing driver and passenger comfort. This particular example spent nearly 30 years in New Mexico and Arizona prior to the frame-off restoration undertaken and completed by the most recent owner. Powering this Silver Hawk is a "Sweepstakes" 289 Cubic Inch V8 paired with a single 2 barrel carburetor that pushed out 210 horsepower in its day. The Studebaker 289 V8 is backed by a 3 speed manual transmission with overdrive that is shifted using a "three-on-the-tree" column-mounted shifter. Exhaust exits the engine through a dual exhaust setup that gives this Studebaker a nice throaty sound. Riding on wide whitewall radial tires on red painted steel rims with full wheel covers, this '57 Hawk has a great look and even better ride. The chrome and brightwork around the exterior of this Silver Hawk are in fantastic condition. The exterior has been beautifully refinished in Apache Red and Arctic White, giving the car an eye-catching appearance. Similarly, the interior on this Studebaker looks great! The front and rear bench seats have been reupholstered in two-tone red and white vinyl, matching the exterior color scheme of the car. The dash, door panels and steering wheel all appear to be in their stock configuration and are in wonderful shape. The dash is equipped with a 120 MPH speedometer, temperature gauge, amp gauge, oil pressure gauge, fuel gauge, and clock, as well as a push button AM radio. Whether you're looking to purchase your very first classic car or you're adding to your existing collection, this 1957 Studebaker Silver Hawk would make an excellent choice. Give us a call today!
