Have the 57 Silver Hawk but still have to go get it. Can anyone give me the overall width of the car so I can determine if my trailer can transport it home. Very excited to get it home to start upgrading it and be able to drive it. I drove it in 1957 so lots of memories. Jim S

I couldn't find anything with an "official" width measurement, but I just measured by 1960 Hawk and it looks to be close to 68" total width. Should be the same as your 57 or maybe even a tad less as I don't think the 57 Silver Hawks had wheel weel trim as mine does.

Congratulations Jim! Welcome home! How did you find the Hawk? Is it in real good condition? Can you tell us more about it?

1957 Hawks are 71.3 wide, 55 high and 204 long (all in inches). This is from the 1957 "Studebaker Data Book for Studebaker Salesmen."

Thanks for the information as I will leave next week to go and get the car. The trailer has 72 1/2 clearance so will be very close. I will sure have more questions after getting back with the car. Thanks, Jim S

Yeah Jim,
Let us know when you get it home and start to work with it. Is it automatic or 3-spd OD?

Miscreant at large.
