  • 57 GH on Barrett-Jackson

    $135,000? That should make my 60 Hawk worth AT LEAST $50,000......yeah right. Sucker born every minute.

    Yeah,

    Sitting here typing a report with the set on over in the corner. Heard the commentator talking about it before it went up on the block state that 1958 was the last year Hawks were made. Actuallys stopped typing long enough to turn around to see which so-called automotive "expert" said that.

    Have to admit, it is amazing what prices they command at that show. If you were to look at that G.H. alongside lots of others you'd be hard-pressed to understand it.

    Added note: Just checked. With the buyer's premium, the guy who bought that G.H. actually paid $148,500. Whew!

        It was gold & white, we all know that was the only color they came in. The car looked to be very well done, and showed very well. I always hear that Studebakers would never bring the dollars of th big three, two years in a row Studebaker has, the 1958 corvette just before it brought $80,000.00.

        I smile every time a Studebaker brings the big dollars, it does affect the value of all of our cars.
        It is an addiction!

          Yes it was a nice car, and to give the annoucer a break he most likely was just reading what someone put in his hand and meant to say that 58 was the last Golden Hawk. <g>

            I'd love to have a GH ( a '58), but I would definately have to paint it anything but gold.....too many of them are already gold.

              Just give me a heads up when your 56J goes on the market.. I'd rather mourn the loss sooner than later.

                Well worth it! Joe, Nancy's 1956 GH is nicer than that 1957.

                  My 56J is always "on the market"! All it takes is half of what the 57 brought today, it will happen......

                  The question Matt is which do you want to write, the sale ad or the story of it being gone?

                    If you gentlemen believe that price was legit .....then you have lead a very sheltered life.

                        While mine has not been severely sheltered, I'm an rank amateur on auto auctions and while I know BJ and the other houses can bid on the cars to raise the price, are there other things they can do?

                          Yes please do explain, this is the second year in a row a 57 GH has benn sold there, I know they have been investigated before. I also know some sales are not completed, but please tell us why a company would risk fraud on a Studebaker selling price.

                          Now it could be shill bidder, but why on a Studebaker? Several people on here probably know that car. Also there would be both the buyer and sellers premium still owed, by my tall that would be between 30 -40k.

                          Looking forward to how it happened?

                            If you get serious, I'll gladly write the ad. But wait until South Bend, I think I need another test drive.

                              Anyone know the history of the car? How nice was it?
                              I read it was Conway Twitty's?

                              The 57 GH is my favorite Hawk...something to do with my first Corgi toy, a chrome gold Golden Hawk.
