1959 Studebaker Silver Hawk leather seating area vinyl trim

This is a re-listing of my 1959 Studebaker Silver Hawk and it is advertised for sale locally. Because I like the original profile of the 1953 Studebaker Starlight coupe but prefer the egg crate grille design of the 1961 Hawk, this 1959 Silver Hawk lost its fins and got the ’61 paint scheme. I am the second owner of this1959 Studebaker Silver Hawk that I bought from the granddaughter of the original owner in California Feb 2010. The car had no dents, accidents, nor any rust. The original grey interior and red exterior needed to be replaced. The old paint was sanded to bare metal and primed. All bright work was removed along with doors, hood, deck lid, bumpers, rear window, windshield, and other parts removable for painting Honduras Maroon, BC/CC. The restoration included: 1988 Camaro 305 with its 700R4 transmission plus new headers, dual exhaust, and a rebuilt Holley AFB carburetor, Uni-steer 360 W Electra-Steer power steering with tilt, Vintage Air Gen IV installed behind dash, Tuner disk front brakes, Five wheels for clearance of front disk brakes, Anti- sway bar in rear (Dave Thubeault), New rear shocks, 1956 front top fender mounted turn signals, GE Nighthawk headlights, 1964 rear tail lights, 1961 Bucket seats, Head Liner with SS bows, Alternator one wire, HEI, Refurbished radiator, New rear drums and shoes, Electric fuel pump Holley with an interior on/off switch, SS wheel well fender trim, Electric radiator fan, New water pump, New EZ wiring with fuse panel, Original clock converted to quartz, Six new Dolphin gauges, Radio AM/FM/cassette, Retractable front fender antenna, Owner manual, Tires have less than 2,000 miles, 2020 battery with knife blade cut-off switch, Bottom 2 inch midsection of dash expanded eight inches for center console with A/C controls, cup holders, and side floor lights, New rubber gaskets, door thresholds with Studebaker letters. Professionals did the painting, windows, and engine installation. Hagerty’s price guide for (non-customized) 1959 Studebaker Hawks is $34300.00 for Excellent condition and $20500.00 for good condition. This Hawk is certainly better than “good”. This vehicle will drive as any vehicle of its era would. Nonetheless, a person needs to be familiar with a car’s characteristics and that is why I favor a car carrier.
