The Studebaker Hawk

The Studebaker company out of South Bend Indiana was known for its sedate but sturdy styling. It's low slung, sleek and eye catching styling caught the eye of many, including the automotive press which loved it. The Hawk name was branded to these coupes by the mid fifties and it continued successfully into production with some changes through the 1964 model year. Today, Studebaker is best known for the Hawk and later, the much applauded Avanti. Supercharged versions of these cars are rising in value as the buying public sees the value and contribution they made to the car industry.

1957 Metropolitan

Here we have an incredible example of a rarely seen car in a rarely seen color combination. Said to be original paint (except the roof) this car is in exceptional condition. Always from Texas and Florida this car is 100 percent rust free and always has been. You could literally eat your lunch off the undercarriage. Equipped with the original Austin 4 cylinder and mated to a dash mounted three speed manual transmission this car performs well. Recently fully serviced by a local vintage British car facility, even the employees there could not get over the condition of this car. Even sporting it's original floating lady Nash hood ornament. You won't be able to go anywhere without stirring up a crowd. Not for the shy people. You'll just love this car as much as I have. Selling from my personal collection, I searched far and wide to find just the right car before purchasing this one. You can't go wrong at $11,500. Inquire for more pics and details!
