  • Hybrid Supercharger System

    Just day dreaming...Has anyone used a four barrel intake and carb with the Golden Hawk supercharger system?

      Haven't made this mod myself, but by rotating the scroll housing of the supercharger 180', an R2 Hawk-Lark four barrel setup should squeeze in fairly well. (Air filter aside!) (McCulloch style blower)

        Yes, here's a pic...

        I believe the car sold at York in 2013

        64 GT Hawk (K7)
        1970 Avanti (R3)

          Not really!....The setup on this Stude utilizes a later Hawk-Lark R2 type blower mount....Not the earlier '57 -'58 Golden Hawk type.

            Ed George put a Golden Hawk mount on his '60 Lark convt but used a Paxton and a 4bbl.

              Using the earlier GH mount is definitely more of a challenge...as it's considerably higher than the later R2 type. (Nice looking kitty!)

                You're right, I saw the 2 bolt thermostat after posting...

                  It's really too bad Studebaker didn't have time to manufacture more of the 'late style' blower brackets....If they did, we would probably see many more Paxton-McCulloch superchargers on the early C/K's....and later Larks for that matter!

                    I don't have a picture but was wondering the same thing at the international meet this year as I eyed a golden hawk supercharger mount in the vendor area knowing I have a Mcculloch at home. Just so happened there was 1 car, a bullet nose if I remember correctly, that did have a Golden Hawk set up with the Mcculloch blower feeding a 4 bbl.

                    I wend right back in and picked up the GH bracketry.

                      The 'holy grail' find would probably be the factory McCulloch kit to fit the '55 Studebaker Speedsters & Presidents....Completely different from the later factory Stude setups....It involves a 'sectioned' water pump, two top radiator inlets, two cylinder head water outlet adapters, and a sealed Carter WCFB type '55 carb with an early style cast aluminum air bonnet. VERY rare stuff indeed!
