    I had the exterior color on my 1960 production order, fwiw.

    Here is the 1956 Power Hawk in Sunglow Gold, the Yellowstone Yellow (or is it Sunglow Yellow/Yellowstone Gold? makes more sense!) is a great combination also instead of this Snowcap White which also looks great.

ID:	1680461 I don't think SN-60's suggestion will work on a Sky Hawk, because there is no "Middle" the roof matches, not the same as a GH!

    Good luck, nice model ! ! !
    I do not believe that you have tried to source a correct (one year only) 1956 Hawk hood lately.

    I have a Sky Hawk and spent years working and researching it to be correct for a factory original. PM if you'd like info or pics. Have a great time with your project, I had a blast doing it and hope you do to.

    To: beantown hawn,-----(Go Bruins!) If You do decide to restore the car to original condition...including factory 1956 colors....I'd like to suggest the following tu-tone combination to You: Sunglow Gold /Yellowstone. With the Yellowstone on the roof and below the side mouldings, and the Sunglow Gold 'down the middle'. It's a rarely seen factory paint combo that is 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' on the Sky Hawk!!!

    Go to the Studebaker National Museum site. There,you can order the original factory production order for your car,and it will tell you exactly how the car came out of the factory-[just about everything except outside color] And it will tell you where the car was shipped when it was new.

    That car sure looks like the one I sold at least 30 years ago. It was black with a red and black interior and auto trans. I sold it to a guy here in the LA area and lost track of it after that. Bud

    That may be true but, I think this says it ALL, -no comment.
