As competition with the Big Three manufacturers increased Studebaker responded with a quartet of Hawks. Top was the Golden Hawk with a 352 V8 Packard engine, then came the Sky Hawk that had a Studebaker V8 engine, and the Power and Flight Hawks had smaller engines. With the cessation of production of the Packard engine the following year the Golden Hawk had to revert to the 289 V8 Studebaker engine. In 1957 the models were reduced to the Golden Hawk and the Silver Hawk. The Hawk continued in limited form until completely redesigned in 1962 and sold well. In April 1963 the Super Hawk and Super Lark were unveiled but production ceased in December 1963. This is a book of contemporary road tests, new model introductions, technical information, driver’s impressions, history. Models covered include:- Golden Hawk, Lark, Silver Hawk, Lark IV, Daytona, GT Hawk, R2.
