    You have the 3138th 1957 Golden Hawk, out of 4356. The body is the 3081st 1957 Golden Hawk body welded up.
    What is your engine number and/or the engine number that the car was built with?
    Your car should not have doors with Duesy swoops in them.
    The "dog house" is not that hard to remove or have "dozens of bolts" to remove. There are six at the cowl on each fender plus a couple at the front.
    Studebaker did NOT have chrome wheels in 1957. They did have a couple of optional full wheel covers.

    Welcome!

    Yes, Tiara is gold.

    53-56 doors have a cove, while 57-58 doors were flat. (There were no hardtop "hawks" from 59-61.)

    Glued on by tar - no, not original, although you could get a fairly heavy undercoating.

    Fender bolts - yes, lots. I presume you are talking about rear ones.

    Rears: bottom, undertaillight, along top under fin, behind rear window, under caps at back of door.

    The shop manual has excellent diagrams showing where the bolts are. A bargain.

    Good luck with your project. I also have a 57GH project.
