Description

1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk for sale! Motorcar Classics is proud to present this stunning 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk. The Golder Hawk is a remarkable example of mid-20th-century American automotive engineering and design. This model is powered by a 352 cubic inch (5.8 L) V8 engine, producing 275 horsepower, paired with an Ultra-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission. The exterior boasts a two-tone Mocha and Doeskin color scheme, while the interior is finished in Mocha. This particular Golden Hawk is one of only 4,071 produced, making it a rare and highly sought-after vehicle.Our Golden Hawk's accolades include winning Best of Class at the Studebaker International Meet in Charlotte, North Carolina, where it scored an impressive 397 out of 400 points. It was advertised as \"pound for pound, the most powerful American-made car in 1956,\" thanks to its high power-to-weight ratio. The car underwent a frame-off restoration, ensuring meticulous attention to detail and authenticity. It features a stainless steel dual exhaust system and power windows, along with factory-installed original seat belts.Designed by Robert Bourke as part of the Raymond Loewy studio, the Golden Hawk was the first of the \"personal luxury car\" segment with its two-door, pillarless hardtop design. The car's long hood, short rear deck, and pronounced fins create an aggressive yet elegant profile. Inside, the plush Mocha interior showcases high-quality materials typical of premium models from the 1950s. The inclusion of power windows and factory-installed seat belts highlights the car's blend of luxury and safety features.The Golden Hawk's 352 cubic inch V8 engine, paired with the Ultra-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission, delivers robust performance. It was capable of reaching a top speed of approximately 120 mph and could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in around 9.3 seconds. The car's handling was praised for its surefootedness, although drivers needed to respect its power, especially when navigating curves or uneven surfaces.The 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk remains more than just a classic car; it's an emblematic piece of Americana that continues to captivate collectors and enthusiasts alike. Its blend of design flair and muscular performance has secured its legacy as one of the most desirable models from an era rich with automotive legends. For those lucky enough to own or encounter one today, it represents an enduring testament to a time when cars were not just modes of transport but symbols of aspiration and adventure.
