    Check it out. 63 GT Hawk is car of the week for old cars weekly online.

    I especially liked the comment about the "inner circle of Studebaker Nation". I think he meant us....

    Scroll down to the bottom of the article and you will also see a link to a great story from Steve Hudson himself about the most beautiful Studebaker never built.

    Very nice, that's a beautiful car. I dont recall if i've seen this particular car before but I did see Scott and his Corvette at the Hudson Wisconisn swap meet last fall. Seems like a really nice guy and well deserving of this fine car.

        This will inspire me to get working on our '63. Jon, feel free to harass me about not working on it.

          Reading that story, I was struck by the fact that this R-1, 4-speed, disc brake, fully-instrumented GT Hawk - definitely what most of us might think of as a "man's car" - was ordered by a woman! That's fascinating to me. That was a lady I would have liked to have known

            I think the Studebaker dealership was desperate to sell that Hawk being that it was the previous years model and them giving her $911 for a 1951 Studebaker sedan which would have been 13 years old at the time.

                  Having to move gave you a good excuse but you must be settled in by now. I know you are not crazy about the Rose Mist color but I really like it. Betty will look great in that car. Send me a picture of the progress for Hawk Talks. Better get on it Perry - you asked for it!!!!!

                    Beautiful Gt Hawk! The fuel line from the factory fuel filter-to-carburetor looks odd ( 2nd fuel filter under the air cleaner?)

                      Jon, i noticed your two Studebaker models and they don't appear to be off the shelf models. Did you build them or what ? As editor for the Toy Studebaker Collectors Club Newsletter , I would be interested in publishing the photos and hopefully you could give me some text to go with photos. I will of course give you full credit. What other stude models to you have
                      Please email me at joebetsy@nc.rr.com thanks , Joe Parsons
