  • Popped up in a local Pick-N-Pull yard

    Located in Parts Galore pick and pull in Warren, MI. No other info on it as this was sent to me by a buddy doing some "shopping" there.

      Holy cow, Frank; an extant Studebaker Hawk in a Michigan junk yard! It's either a 1957 or 1958 Silver Hawk. Too much trim is missing (front parking lights) to get closer on the ID. It is/was probably a six, because I don't see any holes for the V8 flag emblem on the LF fender, right below the holes for the Studebaker script.

      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        I would think 1958 since it does not have the wider trim around the windshield (or wheel well trim). Of course, the 14 inch wheels have probably been changed.

            Looks like a plucked chicken. Other than the rear end, I do not see much worth fooling with. The rear end is only worth the effort if it is a ATT

                Front fenders are worth grabbing all by themselves...

                  the silver hawks did not have the wheel trim and all "C" cars used the smaller windshield trim

                    Since I wasn't trusting my memory on these Silver Hawks, I went to a book with pictures of Hawks. The pictured 1957 Silver Hawk had wider windshield trim and wheel opening mouldings and the 1958 had neither. By your statement, I guess that the pictured 1957 was a slightly modified car.
                    I am pretty sure that for at least one year of C-bodied Hawks that the V8 cars had wheel well mouldings and the six cylinder cars did not. What year or years was that the case?

                        It is a 1956 Golden Hawk, or rather what is left of one.
