      The last one, "Is this the new fiberglass Studebaker"? is in reference to the Avanti before it came out.

        Somehow a 4 dr Hawk just doesn't cut it for me.

            That was never a tagged as a Hawk. In fact, it reads 'Lark' below the door handles, and there are Lark-in-flight emblems in various places on the car.

              For some reason it reminds me of a mid 60's Lincoln Continental.

                If I recall, isn't this car the one Brooks Stevens did as possible replacement for the Lark? My understanding was that it was the Sceptre that was the Hawk replacement, not this study.

                And if my memory serves me correctly, one of the features of this car was that it had interchangable doors as a means of cutting production costs.

                  This car is now in the basement display area of the Studebaker Museum. This car isn't the Hawk replacement, the Sceptre is. This one is the Lark/Cruiser - notice the Lark leteering below the door handles.

                        I like the drawing of the "Fiberglass Studebaker". It looks like a little Ferrari from the time.

                          "I know it's a day early... Ole' well." Chris, are you an abbreviating bull fighter? [)] As ChampTrucking's attorney, I'm concerned his franchise is being violated. I'm going over the paperwork now. [)]

                          Never was fond of this prototype. That had a Rambler, Lincoln, and even a premonition of Pacer look going on. Yes, Russian staff car, too!

                            I love that bottom sketch, it looks awesome! Very sporty, it could have been a sales success. Is this following pic the same car with different trim? Notice it has a Hawk chevron emblem.
