Studebaker Golden Hawk
Studebaker, as a brand, disappeared in 1966 after years of trying to stay relevant to the American market. However, in the mid-’50s, it was still one of the best names in the business. One of the best Studebakers ever built was the elegant ’56 Golden Hawk (via Studebaker Museum).
Conceived as a cool-looking personal luxury coupe, Golden Hawk had Packard-derived 352 V8 engine with 275 HP, which was pretty impressive for the day. The performance was also significant with a 0 to 60 mph time of fewer than nine seconds.
