Description for Studebaker Silver Hawk 1959

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 body had no dents, accidents, nor rust. The grey interior and red exterior needed to be replaced. The old paint was sanded to bare metal and primed. All bright work removed along with doors, hood, deck lid, bumpers, and windshield for painting the 1961 paint scheme Honduras Maroon, BC/CC.

A local hot rod shop installed a 1988 Camaro 305 with its original 700R4 transmission plus new headers, dual exhaust, and a rebuilt Holley AFB carburetor. Plus Uni-steer power steering with the 360 W Electra-Steer Motor and Vintage Air Gen IV installed behind dash with four built-in outlets.
