    Lot T83, a 60 Silver Hawk, just sold for $40,000. That's before the 6% buyers premium. Nice car, but I was surprised it went for that much.

    Maybe that is because Studebaker never made a Silver Hawk in 1960.

      I do not know how this car was promoted, ie: what they said about it, but as Gary said if the buyer thought he was getting a nice ORIGINAL, well sorry it did not happen.

      This term ORIGINAL, is really getting misused a lot lately, every Studebaker that looks nice, has wrong New upholstery, New paint etc. is advertised as "All Original"! Usually NOT.

        Commentators did correct the listing from Silver Hawk to Hawk. Steve Bell of Phoenix SDC chapter has this car's twin (exterior) and it is an award winning beauty.

            I was just watching the auction on delay broadcast, and lot number T- 178, a 1957 Golden Hawk sold at $33,000.

            Not bad, but not the $40,000 that the 1960 Hawk sold for yesterday.

                Here is "F" 178 Gold Hawk Doug said "T" 178 but I believe he made a typo. WOW look at the two and the reported prices. You tell me!

                  Looks like modified cars are drawing more money than stock.

                    Wow, I thought the nice 58 Silver Hawk for $25K at SB was a bit high, especially in comparison to the gorgeous red '62 GT, but who would have thought an original would go that high? Modifieds can of course go really high, depending on what has been done. The Trick Titanium Hawk being a case in point.
