I recommend studying the exterior of the vehicle if you need to determine the make and model.

It’s actually a V6 engine in a 96 Intrepid.

That is one clean engine bay on the Stude. Had a 55 Commander back in 70-71. Miss that car. She was fun.

Cool! I can’t say I’ve ever seen under the hood of a Studebaker.

57 Golden Hawk, factory supercharged. Restored survivor, 55k original miles, original wheels and hub caps. We put a new exhaust system on it, all bent to factory specs according to our data. If anyone knows anything about Studebaker’s this is the big boy. If I recall correctly the official record is 147mph top speed in one them. Very fast. One thing that annoys me is I didn’t realize the center gauge is hidden by the steering wheel. It has a factory boost gauge. But it is a drop dead gorgeous car and easily in my top 5 favorite cars that have been at the shop. Very nice piece.

These cars were way ahead of their time. A padded dash in 1957!. Look ash trays on the doors, Don't see ash trays anymore.
Look at the red thing behind the Hawk.

Most people associate the 1960's as being the beginning of the muscle car era, but there were a few cars built in the mid-late 50's that were the precursor to the 60's muscle cars.
The supercharged Golden Hawk was one of those cars. It would handily walk away from most of the cars of the day, including the Thunderbird, Corvette, and even the Chrysler 300B, which was basically a street legal NASCAR race car.

Is that one of the 40 or so Golden Hawks that came equipped with the "deluxe" interior Recon?
Does it have leather upholstery?

Very possible. I know it’s a 6 figure vehicle. The pinnacle of Studebaker.
There’s also a very rare 50’s supercharged Packard 4 door that comes to shows around here. That I would guess is as equally as rare, and valuable.

My Buddy’s 69 Mach 1. It’s a 302 Auto. Not the original engine due to them not offering the 302 for the Mach 1 in 69. So, I stated that he might as well covert it to Boss 302 specs, due to him saying he’s pretty set on keeping the 302 in it.

If that's the case, tell him to go with the Boss strips too. Could have them done just with vinyl. Easy to take off later.

The Studebaker made a return to the shop. For additional exhaust work. Manifold to exhaust pipe gaskets. There’s a possibility that the car will make an additional return for addressing the exhaust manifold gaskets. Slight leak. Anyway I took a few additional photos of the car as shown.
