    I love that the demarcation between the coral and black on the Hawk is at the "checkmark" and over the c-pillar, with the decklid matching the lower body. So sweet.

    The wheels on the Champ appear to be GMC/Chevy Truck alloy wheels from the early-mid 90s.

        Our 64 Daytona Hardtop,(STUDEE64) was built in Hamilton Sept 23, 1963 and sold via National Motors, 819 Yates St., Victoria, B.C.

        It came back to Ontario sometime in the early 1980's and I found it about an hour north of Toronto and bought it Oct 5, 1989.

          Very nice car, Barry...but, of course, I'm partial to 1964 Daytonas!

          Was the car built in Hamilton as an R-powered car? I note what appears to be the all-white steering wheel...and from what I can see, the Hamilton-style "flags" on the C-pillar. BP
          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

            Hi Bob,

            The car was not built as an R-1. It came as VJ8 289 225 HP, 4 bll, 4 speed, 3:73 TT, duals, disc brakes (now Turner) p/b radio, buckets, etc.

            We restored it with .040 pistons, Harbit cam, Edelbrock 500 carb, T-5 Mustang box, added A/C and power steering, American Torq Thrust D's, Don Simmons stainless, and of course those neat little R-1 badges for fun. It is my 'tribute' version for the last Studebaker built in South Bend.

            The white wheel was standard '64 for Hamilton and the flags do not have the integrated 'V8' as used with South Bend cars. It was originally Midnight Black, but it deserved Red and got it!

                  Hamilton did not make any R powered cars to my knowledge

                    Couple more shots from the same evening for interest's sake...

                    The 56 Hawk from the rear...


                    Bob's nifty Champ...


                    The Avanti from the rear...


                    The engine bay of the Avanti...


                    My Lark is still in the shop having the electrics gone through and so she won't be at M'view this week, but the weather's supposed to be decent and I'll be there camera in hand to grab whichever Studes do turn out...
