    Ooooh that's pretty! Could look really nice also if two-toned with coral in the mid section. I'm not a fan of the continental kit, but it does make it very unique.

        The Sky Hawk is in the top three on my all-time Stude want list. If that car had an overdrive, I'd be closing out a CD and putting in an ad to sell off the continental kit, backup lights, bumper guards and whitewalls.

          Beautiful car...until you look at the rear! Ugh!

          I think if I needed trunk space that badly, I would install a rack on the trunk or tow a trailer, but NOT hang 200 lbs. of junk on the back![xx(]

            It is a beauty - my favorite of the Hawk series that year, the carbuncle on the back kinda ruins it. How much do you think it would cost to resore it?

              I like '56 Sky Hawks. That continental wheel sticks up so high that it must act as a drag chute. I can just imagine Bob Bourke's comments about how the rear of that clean design was "ruined".

                There's no accounting for taste. At any SDC show, there'll be more than one owner who never met an accessory he didn't like - bumper guards, spotlights, fog lights, connie kit, dual antennas, dual mirrors, sun visor, evaporative cooler and the ubiquituous crying raggedy ann doll.

                If an owner wants to take a classic Lowey/Bourke design and give it the full "pimp-my-ride" treatment, his car, his money, his decision. But I certainly would deduct the cost of the option deletes from what it is worth to me.

                  Yumpin yehosafat..I gotta admit..that is one ugly c-kit. I suppose it would take a new bumper and lots of work to correct that mess. I'd knock $1500.00 off the price at least to clean that mess up.

                    While the c-kit is not my taste, I can see that it was probably a period piece. It certainly doesn't detract from the fact that this is a gorgeous car; one I would not kick out of my garage!

                      The interior is not stock, though it looks good. Ignition key bezel is also incorrect. Why no pics of the headliner, engine and trunk?

                          Keep these great "Hawk Pictures" coming! I agree with some of those ahead of me. 1956 C/K's were the best of Studebaker!!!!

                            That one is a looker, just sell off the bits you don't want. I would note that they are listing the current odometer at 10,903 - which is a different thing than claiming 10,903 miles. Still, it has obviously been loved.

                              A classy looking car. I agree that the back porch ruins the look of the K body cars. Such things were popular at one time just like huge deck wings are with some folks now.
                              It is strange that a car with that mileage would need the changes that one has. I wonder if the miles are after a rebuild? Also, no pictures under the hood.
