  • Engine: 1957 Golden Hawk

    Were there '57 Golden Hawks from the factory with 2 4-barrel carbs. If so how many?

      Not only no 2x4-bbls, there weren't any '57 GHs with even one 4-bbl. All the '57-'58 GH/PH and '57 Packards were 2-bbl carbs.

      The only Studebaker V8s with factory 2x4-bbls were the couple of unobtanium R4 Larks.

      And no, there were no factory-produced '56 GHs with 2x4-bbls. Many had dealer and owner Carbbean 2x4-bbls added.

          Welcome to the SDC and to the SDC Forum Rick!

          To clarify the Golden Hawk truth, that has been really TWISTED in Car Guy folklore over the years.

          The 1956 GH was the ONLY year Hawk that was powered by a 352 cid Packard Engine, it COULD be aftermarket equipped with '56 Caribbean Convertible, Dual Quads as Jack mentioned.

          The 1957 & '58 GH and '58 Packard Hawk could not be equipped with 2 -4's because it was a Studebaker 289 Supercharged 2 Brl. Engine, without major modifications to actually RUN well.
          Certainly NOT anything the Factory built or would have for street use.

          There ARE however, many Mods that can be done to a Hawk 289 to give it even much more H.P. than Dual Quads ever could.
