        It IS a very Poor Pic In front of the Filler Pipe is SOME kind of a Black Box with a round Solenoid like thing with a Wire going to it. It would be an Odd place to put a Electronic Ignition Box.

        It's a Carter WCFB 4 Barrel, Flight-O-Matic equipped Hawk, just buy it!

              It's an old Mallory Magspark ignition coil. Might have a dual point distributor also.

                  As it turns out it's THIS Car (found it) in Marshallville Ohio.
                  Nice complete Dashboard.

                  Who knows how many are '56 vs '57-'62! If the Gold one is Yellow/Gold not Metallic Golden Hawk Gold it could be a '56.
                  They look like they have been stored for 50 Years, from nice Cars in the Day.

                      I believe the seller is a Studebaker parts vendor, Dick Lindsey. Give him a call if you are interested
