1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk
OK I have been working this project for a couple years now and my disability is getting in the way of restoration skills necessary to finish project. Most everyone in SDC knows this car as I have asked many questions from members because of my lack of expertise and I must note they have been great with cooperation in fact when I went to rebuild motor I found both heads cracked so a member in California sold me NOS correct supercharged heads.
I started out 3 or 4 years ago taking the body off frame and putting it on a rotisserie.
Blasted painted frame, new springs shock, brakes, blasted the floors and found it to be solid the only problem I saw that needed attention was a couple mount which I installed new aftermarket.
Blasted boy, epoxy prime, premiered again, block sanded, painted, color sanded and put another coat on. I painted all the parts off car and have the parts back on the car and a all of us knows there are some marksfrom putting parts on so it will need more paint and clears.
NOTE ; It came with 1956 scalloped doors and was going to get different doors just didn't do it yet.
Yes I know the front fenders do not have holes for fender spears or holes for park lights I do believe at one time someone put new ones on. I have nice pair of park lights but no fender spears.
THIS CAR DOES NOT HAVE ANY REPAIR PATCHS OR BONDO IN IT. IT IS ALL METAL BUT WITH THAT BEING SAID YOU WILL HAVE TO SKIM COAT TO GET MINUTE DINGS FROM ME PUTTING PARTS ON.
I have all the trim plus some so you don't have to chase them down and all in good shape. I HAVE GOOD GRILL WITH EMBLEM AND RECHROME BUMPERS WITH NOS GUARDS
Interior is all done just have not installed yet. I'm at the point of redoing the dash because I wanted to paint surface and clean instruments and install NOS radio. Yes I have a NOS radio for it.
The motor was punched 30 with engine kit from Studebaker International as was most of the parts.
Rebuilt generator, tach unit with new connector carb, trans, convertor, new master cylinder, brake hoses, lines, shoes, wheel cylinders etc up front I did not get to the rears although I did pull the drums off and loosely put them back on
If you notice the tires they are like new but not radials although I have a nice set of 15inch wheels with painted stock rims not the chrome you see on car.
All new interior in a Gold and White pattern using the old door pads a templates and the trim that goes on them. Interior guy back in Indiana before I moved screwed up the headliner by making it short on sail panels.
All glass and regulators are present just not put in yet.
I have many more pictures as the project went along so if you need more let me know.
I encourage anyone to come down and inspect. With that being said the car is being sold as-is according to pictures so please ask. there IS JUST TO MUST TO LIST
No overseas bidders so if you want it get someone over here to buy it for you and them do whatever you want to it.
There is a lot of money and a lot of receipts for this thing so I'm not going to get all my money back but I'm not going to give her away. I figure another 7-10 grand will get you a $45,000 car easy and will continue to go up.
NO SHIPPING, LOCAL PICKU ONLY UNLESS ARRANGED. CAR IS BEING SOLD LOCALLY AND IN PHILADELPHIA SO I CAH END LISTING ANYTIME.
I WILL USE PAY PAL BUT CASH IS PREFERRED. DEPOSIT TO BE MADE WITHIN FIRST 24 HOURS SO PLEASE SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY
