The long and sleek look of this 1959 Studebaker Hawk reminds you that some of the best cars from the best classic era didn't always come from the big three. So if you're looking for true vintage style with rarity and distinction guaranteed, take a look at this coupe.
<br><br> There was an investment in this car later in life, and you understand that instantly by the shine of the paint. The vibrant red really makes sure you see the long lines of the headlights, the artful hood, and crisply-formed tailfins. It all came from the studio of Raymond Loewy, one of the most celebrated industrial designers of all time. And the brightwork makes a terrific statement because this is a true 1950s classic. It draws attention to the subtle hood scoop, triple grille front end, form-fitting bumpers, and helps make the tailfins seem even larger. It's all part of a highly factory and well-done package. This really has a terrific stock style, right down to the wheel covers.
<br><br> Just like the exterior, the interior is unique and attractive. The two-tone gray is quite striking, and the door panels and seats have a clean/fresh feeling. The stylish factory steering wheel is like a '50s work of art, and it's thin enough to get a commanding view of the distinctive dash. The machine-turned panel is a hallmark of these cars, so it's great to see this looking so bright and sporty. Plus, the factory speedometer is now supplemented by well-integrated Bosch auxiliary gauges to keep a good eye on what's going on under the hood.
<br><br> It's cool to see the long straight-six block in the engine bay of such a long coupe. This has an honest and correct presentation, right down to the generator. And the way this fires up and runs proves that the classic appearance also received proper care. The column-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you good control over the motor, and the classic whitewall look hides a modern comfortable tire. So this Studebaker was made for cruising.
<br><br> We'd usually think a 1959 Chevy convertible is rare...but they sold about nine times more than Studebaker sold '59 Hawks. So this is a bright, complete, and absolutely rare coupe up for grabs. Call today!!!
