    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...

    Hamilton did not make any R powered cars to my knowledge

    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!

    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

    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.

    Bobs--

    That makes sense about the local survival rate of the later Hamilton Studes. Never thought about that. My 62 Lark VI is a Hamilton car, that being one of several reasons I picked this particular one, but she wasn't a local car...spent her first 44 years in smalltown eastern Ontario. Would've seen a lot less road salt...and a lot less overall use too, apparently. Plus she got restored half-decently along the way.

    The 56 Sky Hawk is going on the market?? Nooo...must...not...inquire...one...Stude...is...enough...right?[]

    I think its that way because most of the Hamilton cars got drove into the ground and of coarse our lovely road salt hurried that up some
    Also I can remember when alot of the club members had older Studebakers and they had late model ones for daily drivers . There was a time here when you could find a late model Studebaker on used car lots very cheap and guys picked them up for daily drivers and they sure didn't last long in the winter salt . Not many Hamilton Studebakers in the 60's around here left because of this .
    My Champ was brought up from California back in the '90's . That '64 ragtop was brought up to York by Chuck Nagel , my '64 HT is a Hamilton car but it spent its life in BC until I brought it here.

    Wow! 75% from South Bend...in Hamilton! That's quite a surprise; I wouldn't have expected nearly that high a percentage anywhere in Canada, especially in Hamilton.[:0] [8D]BP

    Bob ... I do know that the '64 convert, the '40 sedan and the Champ truck are SB vehicles . Being a Hamilton area person I'd say that about 75 % of our members cars are US cars. Myself out of my 3 , 1 is a South Bend vehicle and the other 2 are Hamilton ones.

    Nice pics, Steve, and an unusually good variety and showing of Studebakers.

    Question: In a show like that, how many of the Studebakers would likely be Hamilton vs. South Bend production? In other words, how many Studes may have migrated north and now be owned and registered in Canada? The '64 Daytona convertible, for example, looks like it has a South-Bend-style Body ID tag on the cowl, so it would be a "migratory" car if that was indeed true.

    Just curious. Thanx. BP
