  • 64 factory fiberglass bonneville GT Hawk prototype.

    Really?!?!?! Where do they get this *#@~. It's not even full flow. Obviously no supercharger maybe the hood is fiberglass but that's about it. Almost sounds like he heard tales of an R3 Avanti and tagged it to his run of the mill hawk.


    Well at least he's not asking the world for it.

        I saw this to but couldn't get it to post. Door panels are not even right for a 64. No numbers but would bet it is a 62-63. Prototype maybe thats it a prototype 62 with a 64 trunk.

          The owner says it's serial number 64V-0010 on the door post.

            Well I'll give him that his "granTorismo" IS modified alright!
            A left hand mounted Alternator, a weird Distributor, a R1/R2 Fuel Pump, modified fan Shroud, NICE Carb. Rod!, '63 Door Panels, NO Tach. '62 Side Grilles and a nice close-up of the GM Alternator, I wonder if he thinks that is the "Supercharger" it is supposed to have?


            '64 Bonneville Super Hawk, yeah right! NO Tach.! Also it appears to have NO Serial Number Plate, I doubt it is even a '64 even WITH a '64 Body Tag !

                That would be pretty good, Jeff, since they started with 64V1001. (But then again, he does say it is rare and experimental, so maybe they were experimenting with lower Serial Numbers than normal, too!)

                  Here is the response I got when asking about the engine number and car serial number:

                  "There is no engine serial # stamped jtsa401/doortag -64v0010"

                  It doesn't make sense. He says there's no engine number and but then throws something out close that starts with jts ...

                    I am not throwing out the "POSSIBILITY" that this Car WAS something Special as a Prototype ONCE, BUT is has been messed with a LOT since if it ever WAS once "Special"!

                    Maybe he got the Engine Number from some documentation he has instead of the Current "Replacement Engine" itself.
                    If so, he needs to produce it, post it or something.

                      isn't that an SDC sticker in the side window? I hope he doesn't spread any more "information" than this eBay ad.

                          Strange Ebay listing: For about 2K more than his asking price, google "studebakers forever" and see what 2K more will buy. Amazing. Ken Deltaville, Va

                            I have to feel sorry for this car, not the owner. Who would do that to a 1964 Hawk? I particularly like the throttle linkage (Coat Hanger Wire). I not sure what the fuel pump is but it is not a R1/R2 Carter, I just rebuilt mine today with a kit and it does not resemble the one in this car. The seller is dreaming in technocolor for a $16,000 Buy It Now. What a sad looking car.

                              Is this '64 Gt on ebay for real?

                              Did Studebaker or Granatelli ever build a car like this??? Says it's supercharged, but sc is cleverly concealed. I'm not skeptical, of course...........

                              Since it doesn't have a battery (or stock battery tray), it's OK that there's no hold down though......
