1962 Studebaker Hawk GT 289 CI from North America
I am working on this 62 beauty.
This 1962 Hawk GT is a beauty, I bought it for my 15 year old son, but I think we will be fighting to see who gets the keys.
The horse power that the Studebaker 289 produces is just awesome. The handling since we replaced the shocks is great, holds the road almost as well as my 03 Corvette, she sticks to the road like glue.
The only problem I find with this model is it has the 3 speed transmission mounted on the column. I would love to convert it to the floor, but my son would hit me over the head with a ball peen hammer.
This car has been lots of fun to bring back, and we are having a great time showing off our Hawk.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Are the tires and suspension stock specs? It's a charming car, but it's hard to believe the Hawk handles nearly as well as a modern sports car.

Hawk GT is an interesting looking car, looks nice when I did an image search. Couldn't see much difference between the Studebaker Lark 6 & 8 though when I looked them up, probably just an engine difference I'm guessing.
