Vehicle Story

This 1960 Studebaker Hawk is one of 4,280 produced for its model year and was acquired by the seller from an estate sale in partially-restored condition. Specifications include a 289ci Studebaker V8 fueled by an Edelbrock carburetor and a 2-Speed Flight-O-Matic transmission intended for a Golden Hawk, along with power steering and a dual exhaust system. Parts described as new or replaced include the tires, exhaust, and interior carpeting, while the engine itself is reported to have been rebuilt. Interior equipment and features are reported to remain operational such as aftermarket instruments, the heater, and other switchgear, and a Studebaker-branded Hard Rock radio is included. This 1960 Studebaker Hawk is offered on a clear Washington state title in the seller's name.

The Studebaker Hawk was designed by Robert Bourke while working for Raymond Loewy and this example is finished in black with a contrasting silver accent on the fins. The seller describes the paint finish as being free of flaws such as bubbles and runs and exhibiting a deep reflective shine. Studebaker Hawk production for the 1960 model year was delayed from November of 1959 until February of the following year due to a steel industry labor strike which resulted in a material shortage, and this example is one of 4,280 produced for the year. Brightwork consists of window and body trim, front and rear bumpers, and exterior mirrors, and the dual exhaust system exiting from beneath the rear bumper is described as new by the seller.

Wheels wear factory-offered colors and are wrapped in Coker whitewall tires.

The interior is upholstered in gray cloth with bench seating front and rear and a plastic aftermarket center console is situated on the transmission tunnel. The padded dashboard sits atop a turned aluminum instrument panel which contains a cassette deck. Heat is reported to be in proper working order and carpeting is described as new.

The two-spoke steering wheel is the factory design and Equus Chrome Series gauges include a 120-mph speedometer, an 8,000-rpm tachometer, a volt meter, and gauges for the fuel level, temperature, and oil pressure.

Original output for the 289ci Studebaker V8 was 210 horsepower at 4,500 rpm and 300 pound-feet of torque at 2,800, with dual downdraft Stromberg carburetors delivering fuel. This Hawk is said to run a 289ci V8 from a 1963 Studebaker Champ pickup truck, which is fueled by an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor mounted atop an intake manifold and below an air cleaner assembly from the same brand. Power is sent to the rear axle through a 2-speed Flight-O-Matic transmission which is reported to be an NOS unit originally intended for a 1957 Golden Hawk. The driveshaft is reported to have been balanced with new U-Joints installed.

This 1960 Studebaker Hawk is accompanied by removed replaced parts and a Studebaker-branded radio.

@Normlguyaz – Wow this looks really nice, please can you post pics of the underneath, maybe a video of it cold starting and running walk around? Also it says partially restored, what still needs to be done? Thanks n good luck with your reserve, I hope you get what you want. ...

Hi As I stated the upholstery on the seats is OK (not up to the same level as the body and paint) but the seat springs need to be retied and some padding added.

@tkost1 – Seat belts? Any original paperwork/manuals? If engine redone, can it now run on pump gas? ...

HI. There are no seat belts. Has users manual(very thin in those years) I bought this car from an estate. The story was that the deceased had the original motor rebuilt and that a cylinder sleeve came loose and ruined the motor so they got the current truck motor and had it rebuilt. The motor is clean and all repainted and sits very nicely in the engine compartment. I am assuming the question about pump gas refers to hardened valve seats (?) and I will have to say that I do not know if hardened valve seats were installed. I am running pump gas and it runs just fine. Thank You
