  • EXISTING 58 GOLDEN HAWKS?

    I AM IN THE PROCESS OF RESTORING 1958 GOLDEN HAWK #694.
    DOES ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA OF THE NUMBER STILL EXISTING TODAY OUT THE ORIGINAL 878?

    THANKS, DON

    I'd guess around 200 in any shape, maybe a few dozen in excellent condition. Here's one I just sold for a friend:

      Yah I watched the bidding on it....very nice. Mine is going to be very unique in that I have much of the original registration when my father purchased the car... and also a picture of myself by the car in 1959 with the Pink mylar fins that came on the car when purchased.. one of a kind I am sure.

        That sounds like an interesting story, post some pictures if you can.

          I would have to see the build sheet to accept that Studebaker built a GH with pink mylar on the fins.

            I am not aware of Studebaker using Mylar, in any color, on the fins of Golden Hawks. Of course, dealers did all sorts of strange things, often before initial sale and/or delivery. Since you are restoring the car and are interested in documentation, I assume that you either have the factory build sheet or have it on order. Please post it here.

              Well your all right>> It is not on the factory build sheet... the only other option is the dealer installed it. I have the original photo., so wether the dealer installed or factory,,,,doesn't seem like the factory did.. But it was delivered that way and I feel that's the way i should restore it..... With out the picture I don't think i would do it.
              Don....
              P.S. I have a picture and build sheet but I don't know how to put it on this site.
