  • 1957 Silver Hawk 6 Cylinder engine colour ?

    Hi Guys,
    what is the correct engine colour for a 1957 Hawk 6 cylinder ??

    Was it the turquoise colour they painted the V8's with or the olive green they seemed to use ???

    Did they make the 1958 6 cyl motors silver like the V8's also ?

    Regards
    Greg

    You should know Studebaker better than that!

    Run Two Colors at once on the Engine Line, buy and stock TWO Colors, have different Painters, and Guns for the 6 Cyl. Line and V8!
    THE HORROR of the situation would break the Pencil pushers and Bean counters Pencil!! -TOO MANY DOLLAR$!!!

    Each year they were all the SAME:
    '47-'54 Olive Green (was Long gone well before 1957)
    '55 Dark Blue
    '56-'57 Turquoise Green
    '58-'61 Aluminum Silver
    '62-'66 Black

      Hi Rich,
      thanks for the info.

      I have not come across many 6cyl later Studebakers. So my knowledge is a rather limited on them.
