This 1956 Studebaker Flight Hawk two-door coupe underwent a complete restoration that included a total out-of-body engine rebuild in 2003. During that process, the Hawk received a .030 over engine bore that boosted horsepower from 185 to 200. In addition, nearly everything was repaired or replaced as necessary, and this Hawk received a new oil pump, water pump, carburetors, pistons, rod and cam bearings, and more. Service and restoration receipts are included in the sale. This vehicle boasts a 6-cylinder Sweepstakes engine, dual exhaust and a 3-speed transmission with overdrive, which gives it a fun kick while driving.
The current owner bought it from Evansville, Ind., in 2015, where it has been living in a museum for several years. It has had one repaint in its stunning tangerine and white color scheme, and the black and white interior provides an eye-catching contrast. The chrome has been well cared for and is, according to the consignor, impeccable. With only 79,000 original miles, this Flight Hawk is a powerful, fast and reliable vehicle. Sold with a registration.
