25 Year Sleep: 1964 Studebaker GT Hawk

hawk

For 25 years, this 63,000 mile original Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk has been waiting for someone to put it back on the road. It’s located in Fort Walton Beach, Florida and is listed for sale here on craigslist. The price is steep at $10,000, but the seller may be open to lower offers. I feel the styling, especially the interior, on this series of Hawk is just stunning, and so unlike what the Big Three were doing at the time. Unfortunately the seller doesn’t tell us much about this car, and given that the NADA guide has running, driving cars valued at not much more than this, I suspect it may be a challenge to get the asking price. I do wish, however, that I were the person who got to turn the key for the first time and hear that 289 start up!  Thanks goes to Barn Finds reader Olaf E. for this find!

    If it was 1300 miles closer I’d be glad to take a look at it and let everybody know in detail how it looks though $10k seems pretty steep to me. I’ve seen driveable ones for less…

    Looks real straight, but definitely over valued by the owner. Does it even turn over?

    Surprised the NADA is that accurate, normally it’s top value is around a 4. In this case it’s a 2. It would be interesting to know which engine option this one has, as it could be up to a 30% bump.

    This is an hour away, I think I saw it and paid no attention, there was a similar but nice, glossy black one in good condition a year or so ago on Ebay that didn’t make 10 grand for a long time.

    Wow I have if I can use the term OBSESSION to own a Studebaker. They just have this regal appearance that makes my mouth hang open. Sadly they weren’t common in South Africa
