        It's no Lark, but I guess a red, full package Superhawk would be ok........

          Nice score Craig! Inquiring minds want to know, where did you find her?

            Last time I laid eyes on a JTSC serial# was in a junkyard in Los Angeles in the 90s - in a white Wagonaire. What was left of it has probably gone to China and back a time or two.

              What a score! A Canadian R-2 is got to be like a palm tree on the north pole. Grille & gold G.T. emblems make it look like a 63 so then the question is package car or not?

                Congrats, Craig; I know it has been some time coming. A Hamilton-built R2 Hawk is one rare bird. BP

                  Does the 1963 JT production summary exclude Canadian built cars?

                    Thanks, all! Indeed, it is a Hamilton-assembled car, and was sold new in Winnipeg, Mantoba, and it never ventured farther than Stonewall, a small town just north of Winnipeg where I picked it up. It is definitely not a full-package car as it was assembled 'too early', but it is a 4-speed. There is more information on Hamilton R2 Hawks, and the build sheet which I posted earlier here: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...R2-Hawks/page2

                      I wonder if that came from the Green Mist '63 R2 GT that Frank Loucks in British Columbia parted out several years ago. Did you record the engine number by chance?

                            Craig, other than the color change & the "missing engine" which this car has, does it have everything else that the production order called for? I'm wondering if the engine block heater is on JTSC 1116 as it was on 1107 when built. I am so excited for you to find such a rare car!!!!!!

                              She looks a little better than mine did when I brought her home. Nice find and congrats on saving such a rare car.
