    As always.....His car....His money, and obviously by his selection of the "different" color interior and the "different" paint scheme, he was not looking for it to be "authentic". I think the term "original" applies to a car that still has all of its factory assembled components, wears its factory applied paint, and its factory installed interior and accessories. Just a thought on a beautiful car. It would be very hard to duplicate for the asking price.

      I think the terms authentic, and original are often used to mean the same thing, and they're not.
      I take authentic, to mean made by the company, or any vendors during the time period. (such a JC Whittney accessories).
      Original is what came down the assembly line, period.
      That's just my take on terms.

        Here is an example of where the chickens come home to roost, when someone refurbishes a car, and customizes it their way. That's OK because it is their car and they can do what they want. But, when they go to sell it, and somebody else doesn't like the customization, the seller has no right to complain about the fact that buyers are turned off by the customization. You cannot have it both ways. you cannot customize it to your liking, then complain when others don't like your customization. If you build it for yourself, then you like it, and you should keep it. if you build it to sell, then you are wise to build it stock so that it reaches a wider audience. At the very least, if you customize it, then don't get your feelings hurt when others question your choices.

          Once again I am the friend of the owner of the car
          I posted here to inform the forum members of the sale of the car on the Studebaker swap page.

          To my knowledge none of the posters here are potential buyers and their approval was not requested.
          A phone number is included in the ad to talk to the owner if interested in discussing the car.

          I as the poster here did not expect and did not ask for opinions of or deragotry comments on the work of
          a studebaker restorer on his car which got 1st place throphies every time shown exclusively at Studebaker meets.

          Especialy by members who may not lived as long as the restorer has been doing Studebakers, and some of you
          who may not ever personally did a complete restoration but might have farmed it out.

          I understand that the forum is for discussions.
          I have asked for opinions and help of members several times in the past, hope to do it again when needed.
          This was not one of those requests.

            I certainly was not being critical of his work. The work looks great. My main point, for those that may not know, is that the Hawk is neither original nor authentic in the rebuild.
            Yes, I am a potential buyer of a Hawk in this condition, but not this particular car.
            Yes, I have lived longer than that guy has been doing Studebakers.
            Yes, I have done complete rebuild/restoration on Studebakers, both for myself and as work in a restoration shop.
            What do you deem to be "deragotry (sic) comments on the work"?
