    I say "go for it" if it has ever been your dream.

    I totally agree with you Brian. Buy your dream car while you still are able to enjoy it. It took me 35 years before I got mine ( I'm only 51), and your right "their still printing money"

      now, if the printers would just send some my way.

      i've had to revise my "top five" next stude list a bit in the last few months. but also have a "fantasy/win the lottery" list. and a packard hawk is still #1 on that list!

          You are probably referring the Chrome window mouldings that came out of a Speedster,I had intended to put the painted ones back on when it sold.Was that it?

            To: studebakersteve,-------- You hit it! I like the stainless mouldings Myself. I've also installed them in a few Hawks over the years, including a GT (front). Your '58 Golden is a beauty. I really like the solid white exterior.-Good luck

              To: studebakersteve,---------- About Your '63 R-2 GT Hawk.... I remember that Motor Trend article. Didn't the Hawk on the cover, (Your Hawk), have the forward section of it's roof painted black? Not vinyl like the '64
              option, but actual black paint? And wasn't the Hawk inside the magazine (The car they actually road tested) painted Astra White ? Must have been two different cars?

                I have pictures and video of Steve's Golden Hawk in action. It is a fantastic car and worth every penny.

                  It did have the black section on the roof and it was painted.It also had the Dayton wire wheels,which I think made it over to 64 Mademoisell convertable for the 64 Chicago Auto Show.The White car that was tested was a Super Hawk and is now part of the Bell Collection in Bellingham,Wa.

                    To: studebakersteve,------------ The forward section of the roof painted black is an interesting detail making Your GT Hawk unique. Will You re-create that feature? Nice to hear that the white '63 Super Hawk MT test car survives. Do I remember
                    correctly that Halibrand Mag wheels were installed for that road test? Take care

                      Yes,I have it painted and with the black band on the roof,I will make it as original as I can.It was a heater and radio delete car and with no power steering.The heater was added later,but I am having a hard time figureing out how they blocked off the heater and controls,can't find it in the parts book.I do believe the Super Hawk had Halibrands.
