  • R-1 GT Hawk 4 speed on e-bay but not easy to find.

    While just scrolling thought e-bay I came across this car with no reserve and a $4,000.00 starting bid it does not come in the cars and trucks area so might not get any action big problem it has some floor and trunk problem but still a super hawk with the 160 speedo and red line tach JT1816 car is in Tennessee and Chuck gives his number as 423-834-1298 here is the auction number since I do not know how to link this up...number is 321436432625

      The ebay ID number pasted into eBay's Search window gets you the AD, and you "Copy" function (Control "C") it's address and Paste it's HUGE 210 characters address into the tinyurl.com downsize window, reducing it to 26 characters, copy that and paste it into a forum Post.

      Took about a minute, a lot less time than trying to explain it. Then you get this working URL:

      This MAY be a Factory, R1 Powered '63 GT Hawk 4 Speed, it probably is NOT a full package Super Hawk.

        The seller has apparently transposed the last two digits of the Serial Number. The Serial Number is given as 63V30412, which is not among the lists of R-engined 1963 Studebakers.

        However, Serial Number 63V30421 is a legitimate R1/4-speed Hawk and matches this car perfectly as to colors and equipment, so I'm sure the seller simply misread the Serial Number plate and/or transposed numbers.

        That said, 63V30421 was not a full-package Super Hawk. And, of course, there is no such thing as a Rose Mist interior, per the seller's claim. That interior color is Chestnut, which does look really pretty against a Rose Mist exterior. Actually, Chestnut goes well with many colors, and I wish it was more common! BP

          There seems to be a "sign" that the floors have been worked on at some point...

          Wonder where the wagon in the back ground is going for a ride?

              Here's another lingual goofy - like "Presidential". He calls this car a "program car". I don't think I've ever heard that phrase used for a Stude or any other make.
              No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                I have heard it used with modern cars, but typically as part of an effort to get rid of certain vehicles, i.e., factory executive car.

                  a few years ago (don't know about now), "Program Cars" were what were used to be called a "Demo" (test drive), or a car the "Executives" or salesmen at a dealership would drive, or a early return leased vehicle (usually a repo)...

                  idk. just throwing it out there.

                    I'm sure that instead of "program" car, he meant to say "package" car. But I think BP has already verified that it is not. Even so, if it sells for 4k, someone gets what looks like a bargain.

                        I think this picture was taken at the Townsend, Tn meet. I looked at the subject car there and remember the wagon. I didnt check everything beyond verifying the JT code engine and 160 speedo. I dont want to slam the car but this one should be inspected before buying. The car had potential but it is not a quick easy resto project. Seller was straight up about what the car was condition wise. Steve

                          At least the eBay listed shipping is reasonable. $3.22 to California. No more complaining about "wrong side of the country!"
