Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is proud to present this
1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk. It is hard to believe it's been nearly
65 years since the 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk graced America's
highways. It's been decades since Studebaker built its last car
making the Golden Hawk a milestone car worth looking at. In 1957,
Studebaker took a different approach as compared to the '56 and
offered just two Hawk models, the Silver Hawk and Golden Hawk. The
Golden Hawk featured the same 289CID V-8 as the Silver Hawk, but it
was equipped with the McCulloch supercharger giving this car 275hp.
All that power goes to the rear wheels via the 3-speed automatic
transmission. This example is done in the stunning Arctic white and
Tiara Gold Metallic color combination with a white and black
interior. Some noticeable features on the exterior include tail
fins, gold script trim, wing windows, and a hood bulge to clear the
factory-equipped supercharger. A massive two-spoke steering wheel
sits ahead of an engine-turned dash fascia housing a 160-mph
speedometer, a 6k-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges that include
a boost gauge, coolant temperature, battery amps, oil pressure and
fuel level. In its day, the Studebaker Golden Hawk was compared
with the Chrysler 300B, the Ford Thunderbird and even the Chevrolet
Corvette. The 0 to 60mph time was a blistering , in its day, 7.8
seconds and with a top speed of 125mph, The Golden Hawk was truly
one of the very first muscle cars! If you are looking for an
interesting, whimsical ride that's sure to attract attention, this
1957 Studebaker is sure to fit the bill.
