    I saw this car in Cortez, CO 2 years ago at a local car show. We were traveling across the country, towing our Studebaker behind the motorhome. We were one of five Studebakers, (had the 66 Daytona) in a 100 car show, and this 64 GT is everything that the ad says. I'm not really big on black cars, but I'd take this car in a heartbeat. Has to be one of the nicest 64's I've ever seen and the documentation is a big plus. I have no ties to this car, but just thought I'd pass on what I know about it. Owner was a heck of a nice guy too.
    The show was on a cloudy day and when the clouds started to look threatening, the owner fired it up and took it home before any raindrops fell.

      That is REALLY TOO BAD!

      It just destroys the correctness of a really nice otherwise correct GT Hawk, when someone does not measure a correct Car or at least eyeball a Pic or something of a correct Decklid. before drilling Nameplate holes etc.

        Another non-auction on an auction site. It does appear to be a great car with just a couple of exceptions.

          Yep. It is destroyed. Should just haul that old junker off to the crusher, recycle it into a Mitsubishi Mirage.

            Just like the gold Hawk emblem on the glove box lid instead of the correct chrome style - easy to correct for such a nice example of a '64 GT.

              Nice Hawk! I was confused about the "rare transistorized ignition system (updated to Mallory ignition by Petronix)". Was transistorized ignition an option in '64 and who was the company that made it?

                Just completed the purchase of the 64 GT Hawk depicted herein. The owner, J Wayne McCarey, retired Colonel, USAF, and his lovely wife, Shirley, are simply wonderful and gracious people! Wayne had retained just about every original provenance item possible! Smooth transaction. I got in the car, fired her up, and drove 414 non- stop (2 refueling) miles to my residence. Ran like a top!
                Wayne had previously entered the "Super Hawk" in 37 shows and had received awards in 34 of them. The car was judged three times at the "Regional" or National levels. He received two seconds, and after 8 years of making corrections, finally received a "first" Surprisingly, at no time were points deducted for the "Gold" Hawk on the glove box!!

                As a newbie to the site, I will be reading to learn more about these rather unique cars. BTW: My car was built on December 19, 1963, the second to the last Hawk to roll off the line. The last one no longer exists so Studebaker National Museum sends a letter telling Wayne that his car (now mine) is the last Hawk ever produced. Cool letter.

                  The chevron on the interior driver's side door panel should be red/white/blue and I don't think the "caution" decal should be on the fan shroud.

                      Rick: The letter you reference from the SNM is wrong. The very last Hawk built, serial # 64V-20197, produced on 12/20/63 does indeed still exist. It is unfortunate that some people make such erroneous statements, especially when they are in a position that many folks consider to be authoritative.

                        nevadarick, Congrats on a wonderful acquisition. It makes my original GT pale by comparison. I guess I have some serious work ahead.
                        Cheers, Bill

                          Absolutely correct. Wayne did receive point deductions for these items. I intend to correct them when able! Many thanks for the input.

                            If it does exist, where is it? Any documented evidence of its existence? I'm sure not disputing what you suggest; but, without documentation or substantiation, I obviously would tend to believe SNM!

                              As long as were discussing this car, I have a question. I've been told that anywhere from 5 to 17 examples of the 64 "Super Hawk" with the option 37--High Performance Package, still exist. Can anyone enlighten me on a more accurate number of the remaining cars and the basis for their opinion? Many thanks!
