    R1 engine #JT1267 was shipped in 1963 Hawk #63V6370, not 63V2036. It, too, was a 4-speed car; Champaign Gold with disc brakes. It did not have Twin Traction or heavy-duty springs or shocks, however. BP
    I show in our GT Hawk Registry, http://www.studebakergthawkregistry.ca/ 63V2036 with JT 1028 with pictures, and we also list 63V6370 with JT1267 for which I have some pics 'some where' which will be added when located.

      That's about where that car should have ended up. It's a decent car, but a interior and more away from the typical, nice 14K example. I have not yet seen the decline in values others see, the car was just 5K away from being a excellent example. Here's a R1 I sold for 15K, compare the two and see the difference in the interior for example:

        Perhaps for you, but I've sold dozens of cars to zero feedback bidders, many that signed up on ebay just to win a car they just fell in love with.

          That may well be the case with specialty cars. But having been on eBay since 1998 and having two stores that buy/sell vintage collectibles, > 95% of our problems over the years have come from 0 or very low feedback users. I hope in this case it works out well for the seller.

            Good point, you have a different customer base, old car guys seem more serious.

                Status Update 63V2036

                This is my first post, and an answer to the current status and owner of the 63V2036 JT1028 Hawk. Bought it this fall from a dealer in Washington, D.C. It is in excellent condition, and made the trip from DC to it's new North Carolina home with nary a cough or sputter. I am continuing the restoration, with a trunk over-haul, re-installation of a (Delco) Studebaker AM radio, and several other cosmetic improvements. The air conditioner installation by one of the previous owners left dents in the hood, and she leak a little oil, but all-in-all a great state for a first project car. Joined the SDC (obviously) and met a lot of fine gentleman with years of experience to help me keep the wheels turning.

                    Thanks for updating us Harold, and welcome to SDC and the SDC Forum!
                    That is a way better than average looking GT Hawk, very nice. An R1 4 Speed is a real Keeper.

                        Welcome to SDC and The SDC Forum, Harold. A Rose Mist R1/4-speed Hawk is a nice find.

                        If you made it home "as advertised," you've already determined it being roadworthy. BP
                        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                        Ayn Rand:
                        "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                        G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
