 Origin  USA Engine  4,736 cc, V8 Top speed  115 mph (185 km/h)

  The Silver Hawk offered a more restrained design than many contemporary models, with less chrome and fewer details, and sold well. It was available in two engine sizes, both offering lively performance.

Initially, engines within the lower ranks included a 185-ci L-head six-cylinder, a 259-ci V8, and a 289-ci V8. Power within the Golden Hawk came from Packard's 352-ci iron V8, which delivered 275 hp and an almost-garish 380 ft-lb of torque. it had been enough to propel the car quickly, and obtain it to 120 mph, though the heavy engine could overwhelm the sunshine chassis sometimes , and period performance reviews were mixed.

STK 2159 1959 Studebaker Silver Hawk Studebaker was produced between 1957 and 1959. it had been plainer in appearance than the Golden Hawk, the senior of the 2 Hawk models. There was less chrome, no supercharger and an easier paint scheme. The Silver Hawk was supported the sooner Starlight, an identical pillared-coupe model. By 1958, within the midst of a financial crisis at Studebaker, the Golden Hawk was dropped and therefore the Silver Hawk became the sole Hawk model in production. Studebaker sold 7,788 Silver Hawks in 1959.
