1959 Studebaker Silver Hawk

Only the Silver Hawk continued in the Studebaker Hawk line-up for 1959. It was equipped with two different engine choices, a 169.6 cu. in. 6 cylinder with 90hp or a 259.2 cu. in V8. A few changes were made to the body style including new tailfins, chrome moldings around the windows and two-tone paint was no longer an option. With the elimination of previous Hawk models, Studebaker saw it first profitable year in quite awhile.
