  • No reserve '56 Golden Hawk

    This car just showed up on e-bay in Nebraska with an opening bid of $10.00 and no reserve. Looks to be mostly complete, motor is locked, only 5 pictures, 1 of which is a Ford serial tag.

    Geez, I'd love that car [] It could totally become the platform for my r2 project.................

    Wonder when the seller will notice the Ford tag pic... and that the VIN doesn't match the Stude... <<dunce cap>>

        Speaking of incorrect serial number plates, there is (was?) a nice looking '55 Plymouth club sedan on ebay, and since I used to own one of these I enjoyed viewing the pictures of it. Then a picture appeared of the serial number plate, which was just a plastic strip made with a Dymo labelmaker! [:0] Good luck with the DMV with THAT!

            This GH has seat belts. Wouldn't that have been rather rare in the 50s? Is that a factory installation?

                Yes (or at least it was a Studebaker option in '56).

                    Yes, those door mounted ones were called "Kar-Belts". I have seen a '57 GH with them as well.

                        Those are indeed the factory style belts; my car (RIP) had the same ones. I think they were supposed to be silver-grey though; those are either faded or have been rewebbed.
