    That is a nice coupe.

    I have one request for the daily after dinner mint though. For us new knuckleheads who are trying to learn the models better and see how to differentiate between years and stuff....how about posting what it is everyday?

    Just a thought for us newer or younger guys starting out with this beautiful car line.

        That's a very good idea. Although it could start a few..uh.."discussions" depending on the clarity of the photo or subject. BTW: This one's a '55. Only year for that front end. It is a C-body.

                    Not a Hawk. 1956 was the first Hawk.
                    Since this is an educational thread I thought I'd help. I'm no expert, but I know a little about '55 C-K's.
                    Yes, the 'C' body is the Coupe with the post and the 'K' body is the Hardtop with no post.

                      That '55 is owned by Indy Chapter SDCer Steve Jones, photographed at the 2009 SDC International Meet in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It started out life as a Champion, but has been properly "Commanderized!" 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.

                          That white over red paint job just screams Studebaker. But then I am somewhat prejudice.

                            Perfect, that is what I was hoping for. I was not sure about the hawk part. Thanks for the clarification.
                            Now I know a bit more about Hawk, Commander, Champion....now if only I can remember this tomorrow I will be great.

                              I know that the '55 styling is controversial, but I'd take that car in a New York minute.
