In 1957, the Studebaker Golden Hawk was one of the three fastest American sports cars, along with the Chevrolet Corvette and Ford Thunderbird.
The stern of the Studebaker was fitted with the then fashionable fibreglass fins, replacing the sloping, softly kinked cover of its predecessor. A wide range of colours, including two-tone, were available throughout the model’s lifecycle. The two-colour schemes changed over time, with the bonnet, roof, and side line up to the rear pillar adorned in a different colour until late 1956. A second two-tone paint scheme involved painting a different colour on the bonnet, boot, and side stripes along the length of the body, as if to visually divide the car in two.
