1956 Golden Hawk Restoration History in Pictures
This is a pictorial representation of the five year project to restore my 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk. This video just covers the body portion of the restoration. The engine, transmission, interior, and other mechanical components are not covered here. The car was purchased in October 1983 and it was completed in 1988.
Video footage of my 1953 Studebaker Champion engine running after restoring the fuel system and the vibration dampener. You can see this and more at http://www.theymightberacing.com
1960 Studebaker Lark Convertible Red SumtFG021613
Lark had the drop on the Falcon, Valiant and Corvair in that it hit the market as a 1959 model, one year earlier than the offerings from the "big 3"! In addition, Lark offered a stationwagon and convertible version besides the sedan! Larks continued through 1963, then underwent a name change and finally were out of production during the 1966 model year. It's really a shame..they offered a 6 and V8 and were competitive...too bad it didn't last, the company that had started by making Conestoga wagons in the previous century!
