Hi Guys,
what is the correct engine colour for a 1957 Hawk 6 cylinder ??

Was it the turquoise colour they painted the V8's with or the olive green they seemed to use ???

Did they make the 1958 6 cyl motors silver like the V8's also ?

You should know Studebaker better than that! :D

Run Two Colors at once on the Engine Line, buy and stock TWO Colors, have different Painters, and Guns for the 6 Cyl. Line and V8! :rolleyes:
THE HORROR of the situation would break the Pencil pushers and Bean counters Pencil!! -TOO MANY DOLLAR$!!! :ohmy: :mad:

Each year they were all the SAME:
'47-'54 Olive Green (was Long gone well before 1957)
'55 Dark Blue
'56-'57 Turquoise Green
'58-'61 Aluminum Silver
'62-'66 Black

Hi Rich,
thanks for the info.

I have not come across many 6cyl later Studebakers. So my knowledge is a rather limited on them.
