      Looks like a nice solid Hawk. Is it modified, other than the wheels/tires? I like your garage facility.

        Thanks! We picked her up in early August. We're going to put the original wheels back, and eventually give her nice paint. At the moment she's mechanically sound, no rust, totally straight, and the interior is in perfect shape. We'll keep posting photos as we get more done. Small steps at the moment...

          Most everything is original. We're going to put the original wheels back on. I don't like the look of the street rod. We want to keep her as close to stock as possible. She runs like a dream!

          Sadly, that isn't our garage. That's where we inspected her undersides before buying.

            Good lookin' ride- I see two good things about it right off the bat. It's got Washington plates with Frost & French frames. Hang onto those license plate frames!!! Yes, I'm a bit biased, but that's because Dad used to work there... [:0]

              Kelly, this forum if full of body and drivetrain [u]experts</u>, but don't let them lead you astray! Keep that georgeous car stock as you say, and it will thank you.

                Thanks for the advice. I know what I like and original always looks best. Besides, the Hawk was so far ahead of its time, there's no need for additional mod cons.

                I will be looking to experts for advice on finding little bits and pieces, but in general its just really nice to find people with similar passions for Studes!

                  That's great! We bought her up in Mount Vernon, WA (about an hour from our house). The collector plates just arrived, so we did take off the Frost & French licence plate frame. It's hanging in our garage with other memorabilia.

                  Anyone know where to get the reversing light lenses (plastic covers)? We're missing one and the other one is pretty cracked.

                    Kelly; that is a great car, I believe the Classic Car Lot salesman told us it was a long stored "Barn Find" and it looks very solid, I was impressed with it's "fully loaded" accessory option list! you got a good car! [^]

                    I am right here in Ferndale, WA and can send you the back-up light lenses and anything that is available for your car if you email me, my son Mike (hotwheels63r2) will get the message to me, but is sometimes hard to reach when he's working and away from his cell phone.

                    The way you get the option to email a Forum Member is click on their "handle" and click on: "click to send an email".

                    By the way welcome to the Studebaker Drivers Club and to the Forum! The Seattle, North Puget Sound Chapter or Whatcom County Chapter will be glad to have you as a member if you sign up for the National SDC Membership and get your not to be missed, monthly copy of "Turning Wheels". The International Meet is going on now, so soon we will have the International Meet Issue with all of the 1st. thru 3rd. place winners of all the classes in the big car show, don't miss it! [^]

                      My mother bought one new with those same colors.

                        "Sadie Hawkins dance, In my khaki pants, theres nothin' better! Oh oh oh!"
                        I cannot tell you who does that song or what it is about, but I do remember all of my buddies listening to it when I was in high school. You have probably never heard of it. But it rang a bell with me. (I wanna say Relient K...the band) BTW...where did you get that name? Nice Hawk too!
