1958 Studebaker Golden Hawk very rare supercharged For Sale

Studebaker Golden Hawk 1958. Registration HWC 953 Stunning car. Engine: 4,738cc Supercharged V8 / 289 cubic inches Gearbox: 3 speed automatic gearbox. Body: 2 door pillarless coupe Horsepower: 275 BHP Supercharger: factory installed McCulloch Production Number: 878 Rear axle: twin traction The Golden Hawk with its supercharged V8 engine was considered a precursor to the muscle cars of the 1960’s period road tests regularly saw it out perform the Corvettes and Thunderbirds of that period. The fastest reported times in period tests were 0-60 mph 7.8 seconds and top speeds of 125 mph. Styled by the legendary Raymond Loewry Desgin Studio, the Golden Hawk is now considered one of the iconic 1950’s designs in USA automotive history. The raised height hood scoop is fibreglass covering a cut out underneath to allow clearance for the supercharger. This example is extremely rare as it is also one the few that were shipped in parts / kit form to the De’Letteren Motor Company in Belgium, and assembled by them for use in Europe. Also, now fitted with a full length Webasto sunroof. Less than 100 1958 Golden Hawks are known to exist today, and they are now very collectable in the USA especially. Owned since 2015, recent works include various chrome items re-plated including the bumpers, refurbished leather interior, replacement whitewall tyre (radials with cross-ply appearance), cosmetic paintwork and other improvements, along with engine bay detailing. This car has never been driven in America, and has been in the UK since the early 1960s. A very rare period muscle car classic of the late 1950s I am reducing my private car collection, owned for around 4 years, expenditure in my ownership amounts to around ?12,000, Studebaker owners club member, many improvements and parts fitted made during this period. Wheel cylinders and shoes. Battery. Cosmetic paintwork. Re-connolising full leather interior. Re-chroming bumpers and other bright-work. Replacement manifolds and gaskets. American classic radial/crossply wide whitewall tyres. Powder coated road wheels Classic style number plates. Engine tune/service and many adjustments. New belts. Cleaned underside. Waxoyl where applicable. Prop shaft seals. Stainless steel big bore exhaust with correct rear deflectors. And many other items. Subject to a full body off restoration to a high standard in the late 1980s. This car is well known by the Studebaker owners club UK. This car is indeed a very rare bird, iconic styling, supercharged V8, fins and chrome looks, yet also gives a hint of the Muscle cars about it when driven with its gorgeous sounding exhaust rumble and super light power steering. The full deep burgundy leather upholstery is very rare, I believe only fitted to the Belgian De Lettern cars. Also, unique for this model is the full large fold back sunroof which gives a similar appeal to a convertible when all 4 windows are rolled down for that stylish 'pillar-less? look. The car has previously won trophies at local classic car events, and was exhibited at The Rally of the Giants, Blenheim Palace 2018 and on "The Grand Avenue? being driven through the centre of London Classic Car Show, Excel Centre February 2019. These cars are very rare and are definitely appreciating in value in the USA. For further details, please telephone me and I will be happy to discuss the car in more detail. A great car and still with more investment potential to go. This car was also exhibited and driven at the London Classic Car Show - on the Grand Avenue Friday 15th -Sunday 17th Feb 2019.
