Description for Studebaker Hawk 1963

This museum quality 1963 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk is a gem. Beautifully finished in Green Mist Metallic over a fabulous interior upholstered in Green, it's a gorgeous example of 60's style and flair. Factory optioned with the 'Jet Thrust' R-Series Supercharged 289hp V8 Engine with Dealer-Installed McCullough Pulley-driven Supercharger. Floor mounted 4-Speed Manual Trans. Original 4-Bbl Carter AFB Carburettor. Tachometer, Am Radio, Power Steering Power Brakes. Original Wheel Covers with the Studebaker 'S' Logo. The GT's feature Bucket Seats and Console in Front. The Gran Turismo is a rare American classic and in 1963 was Studebaker's answer to the muscle car. Records show that only 4,634 Gran Turismo Hawks were built in 1963 and very few of those equipped with the 4-Speed Manual Transmission, even fewer came with the blown R-2 engine which this fine example has under the hood. The GT Hawk achieved certified Milestone Car status long ago. It's a rare, all-American Classic of the most desirable kind. Fifty-plus years later, there's but a handful of excellent, surviving GT Hawks left in the Country. Due to an incredible set of fortunate circumstances, this particular car has not only survived in excellent condition, it also runs and drives every bit as strong as its creators intended and is ready for relaxed long-distance cruising.Originally designed and built to compare with the high-end European sports car market of that time, with art deco styling, fighter jet cockpit instrumentation, and European design cues. This Hawk GT still retains its beautiful original Green Mist Metallic color, with a beautiful Light Green and Cream interior. It runs and drives excellent. Original, Desirable and Usable in modern traffic, this classic Studebaker Hawk GT is smooth and powerful, and a pleasure to drive.This Hawk GT's body is as good as you'll ever find. The Silver Metallic paint is the original color and displays an irreplaceable patina befitting a fine antique. Here is your chance to secure one of the very few remaining certified American Milestone cars of the late Fifties/early Sixties period not yet tucked away in some aficionado's private collection.
