    I believe there were 9 sold in the US, out of the 560 produced.

    The '56 GH is the only Hawk with fins in 1956 and, as has been mentioned, they are fiberglass, and shorter than later Hawks. And it's the only Hawk ever equipped with the Packard drive train.
    The Golden Hawk and the Sky Hawk, due to their level of trim, are in the 'President' category, while the C-bodied Power Hawk would fall in to the 'Commander' category and the Flight Hawk would be considered in the 'Champion' category, while these designations appear no where on any of the models.

    And it's the K-body hardtop with full gauge package and a fancier interior.

    The '56 Sky Hawk is also a K-body hardtop, unique body chrome trim, the Studebaker 289", T86 overdrive or B-W automatic

    The '56 Power Hawk is a C-body coupe with plain interior, the Studebaker 259", option of 2-bbl or 4-bbl, the T86 or B-W automatic

    The '56 Flight Hawk is the C-body coupe, plain interior, Studebaker 185" flathead Champion 6-cylinder, T96 overdrive or a rare optional B-W automatic.

    There are many detail differences, but the '56 Hawk line pretty much covered all the possibilities.

    What is the difference between a 1956 Golden Hawk and the rest of the Hawks from 56?
