Don't wash it! Take it to car shows and display it as is. Just don't take it to a show if rain is in the forecast or else a mudslide might break out. ;)

I heard about this car over a year ago and went to see it and made an offer. Didn't get it. Got a call last week and the woman asked if I was still interested. Of course I said yes. The fellow who outbid me took his wife to pick it up and when she saw it she said no way. My wife didn't know a thing about it til it was in our driveway. (she just shook her head). I had to add a little to the pot, but the woman gave me all the Cougar parts. Also set of GH wheel covers in nice condition. Not sure what I'll do with it yet. I'm at the end of restoring my Packard Hawk so I will probably part it out. And it rained here in PA for the last 2 days, so the mud slide already happened.

What is the streamer on the body tag? What is indicated on it? I don't think that it is for overdrive, because I don't remember one on my 1957 Golden Hawk with overdrive.

It definitely has overdrive. Not sure what the tag is supposed to read. Help me if you can.

57H is a '57 hardtop

K7 is a Golden Hawk.

309 is the 309th body welded up.

This is the body tag, every Studebaker has one.

The body may not have been used in the order of weld, there is no correlation between this and sequence of manufacture.

The SN, on the drivers's door hinge post is sequential in manufacture, I think, of all cars made that year, starting with a certain number. (not known to me)

Thanks, I know about the body tag and the numbers. my question was in response to Gary L who wanted to know what is the streamer on the body tag. I'm not sure what streamer on the body tag means.

Minor correction, a 57H is a 1957 Studebaker (President) with 289 V-8 Engine!

The K says Hardtop, the 7 =the high level of trim used on Golden Hawk.

It must have appeared to Gary on the edge of the poor pic, to have a 2nd. tag (streamer) for special order items.

The name of a person (or buyer) in or out of the Corp. responsible for this car, special alert items to be done to, or added to this unit like A/C, Leather Seats etc. These were sometimes added to one of the the body tag screws, but apparently it does NOT have one.

It looks like another tag just below the body tag but maybe its a wiring clip but it does appear to be a tag possible.

First thing I'll do is try to get it started so I can see if there are any issues with engine and trans. The supercharger is missing along with air cleaner, torsion pulley, spring and top half of bonnet. Car has no power steering or power brakes. It'll probably sit for a few weeks before I get to it , but I'll keep you informed of status. Thanks for all the comments.

Why part it out, Larry? Is it a rust bucket? It does look like there might be some issues with it behind the passenger door. What does the interior look like? Actually, it looks like a fun project for someone if you don't want to be bothered.;):)

:) From what can be seen, that car would have to be twice as bad to even remotely consider parting it out.:D

Factory overdrive 1957 Golden Hawks are rare because not only did they build fewer of them than Flightomatics, but overdrive cars were generally run harder as well. Consequently, they disappeared faster than did comparable Flightomtic cars, all other things equal, and there were far fewer of them to begin with.

Overdrive Golden Hawks of any year deserve special attention and consideration. Please consider offering the car as is, as found, if you don't want to restore it yourself, Larry. It deserves it.[^] [8D]BP

Great find it needs to be saved. Now Rusty the 1958 Golden Hawk that we tore apart gave its pieces for our Golden Hawk also helped alot of others get on the road. It was named Rusty for a good reason. We didn't know how those back windows worked. Well Rusty you could just see right in there and use it as an example. That Hawk will fly without the Supercharger and parts.
Save it if you can't make someones day and sell it to someone who will get her back on the road where she belongs.
Thanks for listening.

Thanks Anne for your comments. I have to get under the car and check it out. Even though I found it inside, it spent about 12 years outside under a tree so there are some rust issues. I,ll see how much strength and cash I have after my Packard Hawk project is finished. I'm in the home stretch with it. Engine and mechanicals are done, Just got the stainless parts back from being polished, chrome should be here next week and upholstery is in the works also.

Your Packard Hawk is looking good.Look foward to seeing the finished product.

I thought that the car had a body tag streamer, but on closer examination, it appears to be a wiring clip that is opened up that I saw on my notebook.

My own 1957 Golden Hawk was an overdrive and did not have either power steering or power brakes, but it did have power windows and power seat.

I personally think that it would be a shame to part out this car, but you do as you see fit.
