A costly frame-off rotisserie means this Studebaker Golden Hawk has been returned to its former glory. It went through a thorough frame restoration, blasting, and repainting process with everything documented. Tripe chrome plating, new gold plating, plus new emblems ensure even the smallest details look perfect. Whitewall tires wrap around original wheels.

The interior is similarly immaculate. Despite being all-new, it hearkens to the original with correct seats, plus the proper materials for the upholstery and headliner. Even the carpeting is the correct Daytona weave. While you see the original radio, inside is a modern setup, so you enjoy the latest tech without ruining any aesthetics. The restoration process included the Quartz clock, weatherstripping, door sills, and the trunk.

 

This Studebaker has the optional McCulloch Supercharged 289 V8, which works smoothly with an automatic transmission. Also included from the factory is the super-rare Twin Traction Positraction rear end. Plenty more options are included in this loaded ride, like power brakes, power steering, and dual-speed wipers.

Also included is the original title and the owner’s history, plus the original order invoicing which shows all the options included from the factory.
