1962 Studebaker Hawk Gran Turismo
A 1962 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk with a 289 cid V8 engine. I found this car stored in a barn here in Missouri, and it had been there since the previous owner bought it in the 1980’s. I do not know the car’s history before that.
The car does not run as it sits, although the engine turns when you hook a battery to it. I wanted to sell it as a barn find, so I did not tamper with it other than cleaning off all the dust and dirt. I have done no compression tests or anything else to it either.
All of the chrome throughout the car is in good condition. I have the bumper override for the passenger’s side on the front bumper, it’s just not attached (see pictures). The grill is slightly dented in on the driver’s side. I have all 4 hubcaps, but the front passenger tire was bad so I had to put the spare on, which the hubcap doesn’t fit. But, all the tires hold air now! The original wheel/tire is in the trunk.
From what I can tell the car used to be white, then someone painted over it black and that’s why there’s so much white coming through in the engine compartment. The paint has several cracks and scuffs on the outside. All of the glass is in good condition. Door/window regulators work fine. The car is almost entirely rust free except for a tiny hole in the trunk floor and surface rust where the paint has been scratched.
The dashboard and instruments all look great, and this is the model with the tachometer. The carpet and lining on the doors is in pretty rough shape, it’s pulled up in several places and the thread has unraveled in parts. The leather seats are fairly torn up in the front seats, but it’s good in the backseat. The headliner is good.
All in all, this is a slick classic car that would be a blast of a project for anyone with experience or for someone to be taught on, and it’s just waiting to be rolled away! The title is in my name and in my hand. If you have any questions feel free to message me here, call or text me at 417-293-5107, and if I don’t pick up there you can try 417-284-1544.
