Description for Studebaker Silverhawk 1957

1957 Studebaker Silverhawk -NO reserve

This was one of my dads favorite cars but the time has come for it to have a new home

BODY: Overall the exterior is in good condition-there is a noticable scratch on the drivers door-The grill work and bumpers are in great shape-some of the window trim is scratched up-Older repaint and color change but still looks good-does have some scratches and chips. Original color was white.There is some rust in the front floor pans but nothing serious-the worst place is in the trunk where the drivers side body mount is, see photos

Engine: 289 V-8 4bl-Engine was replaced out of a 1962 GT Hawk and was supposedly rebuilt but the oil pressure drops when it warms up and there is a noise-For that reason it was never driven after installed-dad wanted to pull the engine back out and find the problem but it never happened. The radiator-water pump-starter-generator were all rebuilt/replaced at this time as well.

Trans:3Spd O/D trans was removed and rebuilt in 2002 after a problem with the overdrive-the trans worked perfectly

Interior: Interior is not stock and was custom installed but still looks ok. The carpet doesn't fit well and the drivers kick panel is missing.All the gauges work as they should-the tachometer isn't correct and Ithink the steering wheel is not the original-if I can find the original it will go with the car

Wheels&Tires: Has older American Racing basket style wire wheels that still look okay-the radial tires are still ok but should be replaced due to age

Brakes: Brakes still function but should be inspected as its not been driven for years

Glass: All the glass is in good shape but the rear window seal is cracked and spilt-it will leak water

This car would be and easy one to work on and drive&enjoy or restore back to original. It will start and run for loading-unloading etc but I would advise looking into to engine issues before driving very much. I will awnser any question you have and be glad to provide additional photos-email or call/text Doug @816-678-3858. I work odd hours so i won't be able to respond after 7pm CST, but I will get back to you.

Thanks for looking, Doug
