    Is there a rather large Hole next to that small threaded screw hole next to the Serial number?

    That looks like a LOT of flat surface there, there should be a Hole there for oil to drain back to the crankcase whether or not it has an Oil Fill Pipe there.
    It is not a problem with the Full Flow Oil Filter on the Bottom, but it would be very unusual that it is missing.
    I just can't see enough of the Block to tell for sure.

    All domestic/US 1963 Hawks had 289 cid V8s. 1963 Hawks for export could have a 170 cid six or a 259 cid V8.
    The engine shown started as a 1963 259 cid V8. It is likely the original engine in the car. If you get the production order for your car you will know for sure.

    The "V" prefix indicates a 259 engine. For the U.S. market a '63 Hawk would have come with a 289 engine, but I assume that a '63 Hawk built for export could have been built with a 259 engine. The following website may help: http://www.studebakerdriversclub.com/V8EngineID.asp

    How identify engine in 1963 GT Hawk

    Hi everyone!
    I´m a guy in sweden restorating a 1963 GT Hawk.
    I can´t identify my engine in the updated file here on the forum.
    I guess it is, like normally in this cars, a 259 engine.
    But it would have been nice to know for sure.
    Anyone that can give a hand with this?
