Studebaker History

1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk

Share on:

Raymond Loewy designed the body of the Studebaker Golden Hawk and power was from a 352 cubic-inch Packard V8 engine offering 275 horsepower. The 1956 models were the first examples created after the merger of Studebaker and Packard. The Golden Hawks came with a $3,987 price tag and there were 4071 examples produced.

This Studebaker Golden Hawk was built in South Bend, Indiana and shipped via rail to Hamilton, Montana. The current owner of this 2-Door Hardtop purchased this numbers matching car in 1999 and treated it to a complete restoration in 2007. It was originally sold in Montana where it enjoyed a salt and rust-free life.

Among the significant technical improvements were Safety-Fin brake drums (for extra bake cooling); self-tightening wheel bolts; padded dash and padding on the rear of the front seat; and a 'hill holder,' which prevent rolling back on hills. The car also featured a tachometer and vacuum gauges as well as a 12-volt electrical system and 30 amp generator.
