        None. The first 4 speed Studebaker (car) was 1961.

            Corvettes didn't even get 4 speeds until April of 57, but I have met people who said they had a factory 4 speed Golden Hawk.

                NO 1957 Golden Hawks were built with four speeds. You may be thinking of a three speed with overdrive, counting that as the fourth speed. They were built. I owned one. The first Studebaker cars with true four speed transmissions were in the 1961 model year.
