      I've never noticed a solid color GH before. How rare is that option? I believe someone has tabulated all that info.

        I know it was a factory option. My grandfather originally ordered my 57 that way.

          As if the '58 GH isn't rare itself. That solid white car could be one-of-one.

          I added Avanti pistons and the R1/R2 cam to give it some more performance. It runs great on regular unleaded gas
          It's got a pretty good engine build, but I wonder how the 10.25 compression works with the VS-57 supercharger. Theoretically, that's too much compression to use a supercharger and pump regular. Maybe at Colorado altitude it would work, but not sure at sea level. Even so if it were an overdrive, I might be tempted to throw in a bid.

            My 1957 Golden Hawk was solid black from the factory. It is now solid white.

              All the 1958 Golden Hawk color tabulations are in the September 2007 Turning Wheels.

              From there, it may be learned that there were 116 solid Parchment White 1958 Golden Hawks, by far and away the largest number of monotone cars; i. e., "least rare" of the monotones.

              The rarest monotone 1958 Golden Hawks were Surf Green and Waterfall Blue. Only one of each was so colored.

              We must be mindful of the fact that what we see today doesn't necessarily represent the original mix, because so many cars have had color changes through the years. BP

                Using the stock low compression heads on the Golden hawk,the compression is closer to the low 9's.I have never got a ping out of her on 88 octane,just retard the timeing for lower elevations and it will be fine

                    The interior of this '58 Golden Hawk is beautiful, but I'm seeing something in the interior that I don't believe is Factory correct. For the fun of it, does anyone else see it ???

                      Isn't the door panels supposed to have trim outlining the different colors?
                      I think the tuxedo carpet is correct.

                        Studebaker Steve, your signature line states that you also have a 1963 GT Hawk R2 for sale. Is it the unrestored red one or the brown one for sale? As for your '58 Golden Hawk, good luck with the sale of it, it's a beautiful car.

                            This looks like a Great Car for someone that is looking for "Instant Gratification" or would like to enter the Studebaker world this late in the game.
                            I say "go for it" if it has ever been your dream.

                              The only monotone Surf Green 1958 Golden Hawk built was sold new in Sweden.
                              The car has survived although today it's painted white/red.
