    1962 Studebaker  Gran Turismo hawk.

Entrant  number John Harrison

The Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk (or GT Hawk),was a radical development  in the form of a sporty coupe and was sold between 1962 and 1964. It was  the final development of the Studebaker Hawk series that began with the Golden Hawk of 1956 .

The 1962 Studebaker was a unique design, as its styling was an assimilation of both European as well as American design marvels, and reflected a classic , smooth and aerodynamic styling.

The 1962 Studebaker boasted of several unique features including:

Engine: 2 or 4-barrel carbureted versions of Studebaker's 289-cubic-inch (4.7-liter) V-8 engine (210 or 225 horsepower) teamed with standard three-speed manual, overdrive, four-speed or Flight-O-Matic automatic transmission.

Rectangular parking lights below the headlights

Woodgrain-effect dash and a tailored crash pad

Fine mesh covered front grille

Bucket seats and a console in the front, befitting a sporty-type car, and all seats were upholstered in either cloth and vinyl or all-pleated vinyl

Today, the 1962 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk is considered fairly collectable, although prices are affordable, reflecting the car's specialist interests and the car enthusiast's passion for milestone vehicles
