    ---AND THE PRICE OF THEM . COMING OUT OF THE MUSTANG WORLD, THINGS
    ARE CERTAINLY DIFFERENT. THIS '57 IS THE CAR OF MY DREAMS ANDI WANT
    ITM TO BE ASNICE AS POSSIBLE WHEN IT'S DONE--FINISHING MY QUESTION
    IS THER SOME PLACE I CAN GO ON-LINE TO FIND OUT HOW MANY ARE STILL
    OUT THERE----J.RANDOLPH

    You picked a great place to start, and a real good model to start with.
    The '57 Golden Hawk is one of the more popular, and well optioned models out there. You can get almost every part you need for it.
    First place to start is here:
    http://www.studebakerdriversclub.com/joinsdc.asp
    (Best $20 you can spend!)
    Then you can go here:
    http://www.studebakerdriversclub.com/localchapters.asp
    (Joining a local chapter will help you with resources, tech help, camaraderie for those tough weeks, and a superb social club)
    Then you can go read your monthly magazine (the award winning Turning Wheel) and find the vendor you need.
    Great choice! Good luck!

      I would also recommend getting the Chassis and Body catalogs and Shop Manual, available on CD or in print from many of the Studebaker vendors.

        Not to mention a copy of the Production Order from Studebaker Museum... especially if the plan is to restore to original specs/options, etc.

          I can help a bit since I restored a rough 57 Golden Hawk about 5 years ago. I bought the car for $1200, figured I could finish it for 10K doing it all myself except paint and interior. After paying $4200 for chrome, I knew I would miss my budget. The final tab was a bit over $22K and I sold it for enough to get a maybe $2.00/hour for my labor. I'd bet maybe 10-20% of the cars survived. here's the "Dirty Bird"
