1956 STUDE­BAKER GOLDEN HAWK

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING -

It’s all too easy to dis­miss any 1950s Amer­i­can car as a big, wal­low­ing boat of a thing that might be good in a straight line, but is oth­er­wise lack­ing in al­most ev­ery de­part­ment. The Stude­baker di­rec­tion was a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, and its range of coupés had a lot of Euro­pean in­flu­ence. This one-yearonly model fea­tures a 352 cu­bic inch (5.7-litre) V8 and was given a five-year body-off restora­tion that was com­pleted in 2012. Rare, un­usual, stun­ning, fast – and po­ten­tially great value if it sells within es­ti­mate.
