    Not Rich - There is no such thing as a "non-Daytona two door htps". All 1963 hardtops were Daytonas (except Hawks, of course).

    I agree with you, but AFAIK, the only Studebaker that he owns is a 1956 Sky Hawk.
    I do not know what threads he is referring to (or how it happened). The solution is still to buy new parts.

    Vintage Air is probably the best way to get a cool '62 Hawk. If you are interested in originality for your Hawk, get a 1962 Studebaker unit and install it. It will be approximately the same amount...

    "Common" is sort of a relative term. Most 1963 wagons that I am familiar with were Wagonaires, but I have seen other fixed roof wagons. Up to this one, I have never seen a fixed roof wagon with a...

    Sometimes, I have to stop and realize that some here are younger than I am. I was out of high school when your 1957 Hawk was new.

    There was a couple of local guys that each purchased new black...

    The two things that take the Avanti out of the same market category; 1) not sports car sized and 2) price (as compared to Mustang or this proposed AMC).
    I am not bashing Avantis. I have owned new...

    Reduce their hourly employee's labor rate to that of the rest of the industry, or lower.

    Cars are often not sold in the order that they are built. The next to last one built could have been the last one sold. Too bad about the "worker found in the trunk" :D.

    Wasn't there both a Cosmo Capri coupe and a base model two door Lincoln, utilizing the Mercury sport coupe body, for 1951. I was into Mercurys of that period, not Lincolns.

    I am sure that you know better than I about these. The upper body didn't look correct for a Cosmo, but I thought that for 1951 only the Cosmo used that body side moulding that kicked up at the front.

    Perhaps my picture is too small, but besides the Starlight coupe, there appears to be a fairly rare 1951 Lincoln Cosmopolitan sedan at the crossing.

    Why would you pull the heads? You can look up in the bores when you replace the pan gasket and you can install valve stem oil seals without pulling the heads.

    Welcome to the SDC Forum!
    You have a fairly rare 1956 Hawk. There were only 560 Flight Hawk hardtops (K body) built.
    I do not know the "why" of your question.
