1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk

The 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk was a two-door hardtop coupe which had a base price of $3,180. A total of 4,356 examples were built that year. Power was from a Sweepstakes overhead valve, 289 cubic-inch V8 engine with a belt-driven supercharger.

The Raymond Loewy designed Golden Hawk had unmistakable European and Italian influence apparent in the Mercedes-like front end and the 1950s rear fins. They were built as a luxury performance sports coupe and for 1957 were the most expensive model in the lineup.

Studebaker had emerged from the Second World War with strong financial prospects. However, as the 1950s continued, the company that was born in South Bend, Indiana began to see its profits fall off. Nevertheless, the company introduced the low-slung and very attractive Loewy coupes in 1953, available in Starliner and Starlight variants. Raymond Loewy oversaw development while Robert Bourke executed the actual design. In 1955, a Speedster version was introduced in the top-of-the-line President Series, and was continued in essence the following year in the Hawk series.

The Golden Hawks were able to sprint from zero-to-sixty mph in just 7.8 seconds, with a top speed of 125 mph.
