    My 1964 GT Hawk with full R3 package

    This is a recent picture of my 1964 GT Hawk which has taking over a decade to get to this point. It has an original Bonneville 30 gallon tank, flanged axles, twin traction, 1/2 " fuel line with return and even a roll cage made to copy that in the original number 5 car driven by Paula Murphy. This is a full R3 engine and with the air cleaner canister in front of the radiator (Andy Beckman sent me the engineers drawings), the R3 was rebuilt by Nimesh Solanki.

    Wow - that is definitely a ‘one-of-a-kind’ ride. However, you are going to have to provide a lot more photos for those of us who are visual learners!

    One question - did Studebaker modify a standard tank to almost double the capacity of the stock or did they build something brand new?

    Looks great and keep those photos rolling through.

    John,

    What a great car! You should be very proud of your accomplishment. When time permits could you post pics of the interior(roll bar) and under hood to help inspire me with my GT?
    Cheers, Bill

    On the fuel tank I think they sandwiched a spacer between the two halfs.
