If taking wing with the scream of a supercharger under the hood delights you, then stop on by MotoeXotica Classic Cars and ruffle the feathers of our 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk Two-door Hardtop. This example left Studebaker’s South Bend, Indiana factory and is one of 4,356 Golden Hawks made in 1957 and is finished in a very handsome color combination of Arctic White exterior with Wedgewood Blue scallops.
Dressed in mostly Arctic White (code 1026-BBA) with Wedgewood Blue side scallops (code 1035-BBJ), the car’s paint and trim are in overall very good order. The Stude’s windows are clear and crack-free while its lights, including the parking lights mounted atop the front fenders, are in similar shape. In back are dual radio antennas, a trending item on late 1950s American automobiles.
This car’s bodywork is straight, the engine bay is very tidy and the car’s chrome bumpers are in excellent order and fit tightly to the body. The car rolls on Remington bias-ply wide whitewall tires, size G78-15 at all four corners, with each one surrounding a factory wheel cover.
Under the hood is a Studebaker 289 CID supercharged V-8 engine, breathing through dual exhausts and making 275 horsepower. It featured a belt-driven McCulloch variable-speed supercharger. This improved the car's top speed, making these the best-performing Hawks until the Gran Turismo Hawk became available with the Avanti’s R2 supercharged engine for the 1963 model year. Backing this motor is Studebaker’s Flight-O-Matic two-speed automatic transmission. Driver convenience features include power steering. The supercharged engine replaced the 275-horsepower, Packard 352 CID V-8 mill used in 1956.
Inside, the car’s blue interior is in overall very good order and has a new door panel kit from Southeast Studebaker. The complementary carpeting is in great shape, as is the light blue headliner and the package tray is new. The white-rimmed, two-spoke steering wheel is in good order. The inner door and kick panels are in new condition, while the padded instrument panel with its full array of gauges, is in very good order but the taco, speedometer and odometer are inoperable. Rounding out the interior is a factory AM radio.
The last Studebaker until the Avanti to have styling influenced by industrial designer Raymond Loewy’s studio, the Golden Hawk took the basic shape of the 1953–55 Champion/Commander/Starliner hardtop coupe but added a large, almost vertical eggcrate grille and raised hoodline in place of the earlier car's swooping, pointed nose. At the rear, a raised, squared-off trunklid replaced the earlier sloped lid, and vertical fiberglass tailfins
were added to the rear quarters. The Golden Hawk was two inches shorter than the standard Hawk at 53.6 inches.
The Golden Hawk was continued for the 1957 and 1958 model years, but with some changes. Packard's Utica, Michigan, engine plant was leased to Curtiss-Wright during 1956 (and eventually sold to them), marking the end of genuine Packard production. Packard-badged cars were produced for two more years but they were essentially rebadged Studebakers. The Packard V-8, introduced only two years earlier, was therefore no longer available.
Golden Hawks were 203.9 inches long. Styling also changed somewhat. A fiberglass overlay on the hood was added, which covered a hole in the hood that was needed to clear the supercharger, which was mounted high on the front of the engine. The tailfins, now made of metal, concave and swept out from the sides of the car. The fins were outlined in chrome trim and normally were painted a contrasting color, although some solid-color Golden Hawks were built.
Competition to this Golden Hawk in 1957 included Aston Martin’s DB B Mk. III, Chevrolet’s Corvette, Ford’s Thunderbird and Jaguar’s XK-150.
