:) It is a late-production 1957 Silver Hawk V-8. It would have had a 289 engine originally, but the V530T32 engine number would be a late 1961 259 V-8 enghine, not a 289.

The "T" in the 259's engine number doesn't make sense; it is probably an upper-case "I", which was Studebaker's numeral 1. :DBP

1957 Hawk

If the T is actually a number, the engine is a '61 259
