    It does not have to have A/C with tinted glass. Tinted glass was an option on its own, though it was recommended when A/C was ordered.

    Looks like the door panels have stitched pleats- not correct , can't tell about the seats but material may not be original. Is the headliner one with dots or perforated? The radio also looks like a '62. I wouldn't kick it out of my garage- I can deal with a few details but what else is there without seeing it firsthand? Engine #- full flow? Carb- AFB or CFB, etc, . Disc? Where's the booster? Looks like tinted glass- where's the A/C?

    Whatever they posted as the Serial Number/VIN Number does not make any sense, so it could be the Texas Title Number, that was about the only odd thing about the Ad.
    A VERY Nice Car.

    Well that and claiming "Original Wheels", and having the wrong Whitewall Tires on all 5.

    No, cloth was standard. But it should have the thin silver mylar threads similar to what a same-year Cruiser has in the material.

    I stand corrected, you are right.

    no,cloth inserts were standard with all vinal an option I would call this a dfh (damn fine Hawk)...chrome valve covers would be part of the optional engine dress up kit, which I believe also included the chrome dip stick..The air cleaner is incorrectly chromed...Your also right about the overdrive option being great in a GT as I have had one for years...dfh

    And please note that it is properly painted Satin Black behind the grille mesh and thus not showing an offensive white band at the lower grille area.

    Looks to have 3 sp and over drive but still a nice looking car. Most flippers don't know what they are talking about when it comes to Studebakers

    I wonder what that number listed as a "VIN" is.
    Thanks Gary, I was looking at them chrome valve covers, makes one wonder what this car really is.

    Not original regarding the wire wheels. Borannis were offered in that era but the wheels on the car are Zenith from the 70's or 80's. With Borannis, the knockoff registers to a male taper on the nose of the hub, Zenith (as well as Dayton) went to a female taper. Judging by the shape of the hub, not Dayton but Zenith most likely.

    Very nice full dash disc brake car, albeit with optimistic asking. A plus; its got the original knockoff wire wheels

    Yeah, it says auto, but it sher as shootin has 3 pedals and an OD handle under the dash. This would be an extremely fun car to drive. Cruizin on the highway at 75 without revvin the engine too high. Quite a nice package on this car. And unusual to have OD on a GT.

    Looks like 3 spd manual?? A surprising choice for that car.
