"1962 Studebaker Gold Hawk GT grand turizmo" is a nice looking car and I would be very proud to own it, although I would call it what it is, a nicely upgraded '62 GT Hawk....

Let's pick it apart.
I'll start.
It has a bent tie rod.

This GT may be the most beautiful GT I have ever seen. I know it's a '62 and they are calling it an r3. But I'm a hot rodder and a modifier and I love the car the way it is.

That is a beautiful, high dollar car, with a banged up rear bumper valance. I love the repro Mopar exhaust tips though (pretty sure they are Mopar, since they appear a little "fatter" than Studes').

Wow! That's the first partial-flow R3 engine I've ever seen! Cool.

Seriously, it does look like a nice car. Bought right, it could be a lot of fun, since the frame rails look nice and solid, so the balance of the car probably is as well. As lousy as were the OEM interiors in '62s, it's interesting to see how many different types of reupholstering jobs have been done on them through the years. That one looks nice. :!: BP

The interior reminds me of a toned down '66 Ambassador DPL with the Custom trim package! They should have made a couple of throw pillows to go with the Houndstooth check!<G>

May my arse, it is the most, that one could reside here where I could drive it like I stole it. I'd probably need to steal it to own it but I love this GT.:!:

I could live with everything I see there, once we clarified the provenance of the "Original 330 hp R3 Most rare ssupercharged 4 speed 1962 Studebaker Gold Hawk GT grand turizmo".

Also reminds me of a Maverick.

What is RED behind the rear seat arm rest? What is with the loose wires on the firewall? Why didn't they fix that rear valance? Is there enough adjustment available to align that bent tie rod?
Great looking car though!!!

Had the 250 grand Hawk on around 11 hours before you today, Bro. Made it a point to read the boards before I posted it.

Aftermarket tach hose clamped to steering column looks ...er...really tacky.

Seriously, can't see spending all that dough on the engine build up, yet neglecting the simple upgrade of the dash to full factory instrumentation. Looks positively naked without Stude's big ol' tach and clock combo.

Yep, you did: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/showthread.php?85637-Yours-for-250-Grand

But ALL the previous 11 posts in this thread are exclusively on the '62 GT Hawk.

I like the 62 interiors. But this one is suffering from the dreaded sagging outboard front seat bottom cushion syndrome, on the passenger side. The driver's side looks OK, but there is not a good clear shot of it. I used Mercedes, horse hair backed seat bottom cushions, slipped under the GT covers, to doctor that syndrome. Worked, great, but the Chrysler Sebring convertible seats took it to whole nother level, as a driver.

Wonder what those fender emblems say? Supercharged?

I thought the serial number plates were spot welded on. This one has Phillips screws.

I could not make them out either, but it looks like the same emblem in the front grill.

Joe, I think what you are seeing "in" the grille is the hood latch through the mesh, not an emblem. Take a look at some other views of the car, where you see the grille from a different angle. It appears that there is no emblem at all on the grille.

The emblems on the fenders do say Super on the top line and then charged right below that. The "S" of the word Super is a stylized lazy Studebaker S. I'm betting those are two custom-made logos; they don't look like anything I've ever seen anywhere, and the "S" is definitely the Studebaker lazy S in a circle, ruling out another make's logo having been used. :D

Are you coming up to the Indy Chapter Christmas Dinner December 27?:confused: :) 'Hope to see you there. :!: :cool: BP

I wish he'd made a video of the car being driven.
I think it is a very nice custom with only a few details to fiddle with.
I'd drive it and be proud to take it to shows.

Wow! I read all the posts before looking at the pictures and wasn't expecting anything that nice. I don't care for the upholstery inserts, but I could live with it. A black 62 GT 4 speed is one of my most wanted cars and this one would do nicely.

Hi Bob,
I sure hope to make it to the Christmas Dinner, but only IF it is Studebaker weather. Driving 300 miles in a brand X is just too boring. With a Stude, every mile is an adventure :)

Well, it appears the price on the GH has been modified down to $25,000. I guess the seller was in a big hurry when he first posted it and put in too many zeros.

The "1962-Studebaker-Gold-Hawk-GT-grand-turizmo" does have a nice battery hold down and it looks like it could even be the original one....
