There was a similar car at the Carlisle, PA swap meet last fall that they wanted $8,500.00 for.

Well, Rodney, that would depend on what you are looking for in a car. Your Hawk has been said to be just an over-priced version of this very car. If you are looking for a comfortable car to drive, not only for you, but for your passengers. This is it. If you are looking for a car that's reliable and yet a bit stylish, this is it. It will never make a statement. A Cruiser was designed to be a reliable, comfortable luxury/family car. And that they do admirably well. That's why several people here have said, "Ship it to me!:D" Sell it, by all means if it doesn't meet your needs. There's a ton of people out there who will cherish this unassuming car for the gem that it is. Just don't expect to get a lot of money. As I'm sure you know, Studebakers, and Larks in particular, rarely bring in spectacular bids.

If you will forgive yet another suggestion, Mr. Biggs has tail light lenses for sale on e-bay right now. Get them. They will be invaluable for this car. Your right lens has been replaced with a '62 lens and Biggs' are new. Just another way to rather inexpensively dress it up for a good sale.

Or it means that they would part it out for extras on their own cars. It take the A/C, the power steering assembly and anything else that was in better shape than what came with my Daytona, and then sell the remains. But that's just me.

I think '63 Cruisers are the best-looking four-door Studebakers ever built. Love the touch of '75 Seville/'77 Caprice Classic in that shape and cut of the rear doors. Especially love 'em with that optional broadcloath upholstery you almost never see---looks like right out of a Cadillac Fleetwood!

you're right now that I look at the pics. I would take a good look at the rear brakes, I suspect that they are the front disc type as they appear to be 11" not 10" like they should be for 4-wheel drums. Not a huge issue; but you won't get all the stopping power that you should out of the car (brakes will be biased towards the front with the 11" self energizing drums on the front and the 11" non-self-energizing drums on the rear. This is safer, however, than doing the opposite - leaving the discs on the front and putting self-energizing drums on the rear, rear-biased brakes are scary!)

Ooh, Cruiser with 259. If I'm not mistaken, that was the luxury line for the Larks. As for popularity, I wouldnt mind the Cruiser, or any other Lark for that matter. They are a little understated(not dull drab or boring) in my ohhpinion, which to me is a big plus when around the cops. They make great point A to point B cars, in most cases also point C,D,E, and F too. With the 259, you can fix em up and go running around with them with no trouble(although I would opt for the 4 bbl and 4 bbl manifold). Or really make em nasty with aftermarket items (mmm turbo or supercharger bored out to the hilt [:P]). The brakes appear to be single reservoir power drums, which is a somewhat oddball setup Studebaker offered for a transition to discs. I got dual reservoir power drums, they do the job, no problem, but Turner brakes aint a bad idea.

I don't think it's a transition, I think it's a factory disc brake car that someone put front drums on when the calipers failed and they couldn't find any good ones at their local junkyard.

As far as I know, in '63 all but the barest-bones Challengers and cars with factory disc brakes had dual master cylinders, and that certainly looks like a disc brake booster/MC (hence my original comment, before I looked at the pic of the car.) Oh, and Hawks, of course, because they never made a dual-circuit MC for under-floor mounting (but Jim Turner did!)

The only reason this is really important to the OP is so that he orders the right parts for the rear brakes, unless he wants to swap on 10" drums and leave the Avanti stuff in a box for the future owner.

Yeah it does look like a disc booster. Parent's avanti has one thats similar to that. I could probably guess it was an engine transplant. Looks like what could do is:
Find a manual/non power reservoir and mount it to the firewall(gahh no power and harder braking [:0]
Find the calipers, brackets, rotors etc that bolt to the spindles on the front as he already has the disc brake booster setup on the firewall and the finned drums in the rear(This is probably one of the better ways to go)
Find a dual reservoir master cylinder setup, although that requires plumbing some line to the TEE? to isolate the front and rears
Go the Turner brake route, get a dual reservoir master cylinder setup and the disc brake setup for the front(probably even better than the factory disc route)
I would like to note my 64 was a transition car, as it has power drums and a dual circuit master cylinder. A little better than the manual drums, not as good as the power discs though.

Yeah it does look like a disc booster. Parent's avanti has one thats similar to that. I could probably guess it was an engine transplant. Looks like what could do is:
Find a manual/non power reservoir and mount it to the firewall(gahh no power and harder braking [:0]
Find the calipers, brackets, rotors etc that bolt to the spindles on the front as he already has the disc brake booster setup on the firewall and the finned drums in the rear(This is probably one of the better ways to go)
Find a dual reservoir master cylinder setup, although that requires plumbing some line to the TEE? to isolate the front and rears
Go the Turner brake route, get a dual reservoir master cylinder setup and the disc brake setup for the front(probably even better than the factory disc route)
I would like to note my 64 was a transition car, as it has power drums and a dual circuit master cylinder. A little better than the manual drums, not as good as the power discs though.

fellows, I don't want to sound ungrateful. I think the car is nice however I have always wanted a hawk, That's what I am building. We work on that car a little each day and each day we get closer.I have alot of cars, I have built a car a year since I was about 25. This car (the hawk) might take me 2 years. I have to stay the coarse. The guy that owns this car knows that I have Studebakers, the ones he has seen are prewar. This car is nice however it fits a different profile then I am accustomed to, I like 2dr hardtop cars, although the hawk is a c coupe I like it. It's got style and my color and design will make it fantastic, It will not win at studebaker shows because it dosen't keep with the original theme. I would love for this car to go to a good home. I don't want to see it parted out so anybody interested can e-mail me off the forum. I will be glad to listen to offers. Like my name implys I am a studelover!

Studebakers forever!
