1962 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk
Coupe Car for sale by Left Coast Classics in Sonoma, California 95476
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
1962 Studebaker Gran Turismo GT Hawk
Manual, PS/PB, Low Mile Survivor
Cool 1962 Studebaker Gran Turismo for sale. This Hawk GT was purchased new in 1962 in Flushing New York and we are told the 69,393 miles are original. It is factory-equipped with 3-speed manual transmission, power steering, and a 289ci V8 engine. It is one of 8388 built in 1962 and is in mostly original, well-preserved condition. It includes the original owner's manual and case as well as insurance cards dating back to its first owner. It has had two subsequent California owners since, both using it sparingly and keeping it inside.
This car was stored for many years under the first owner then was brought out of hibernation and professionally serviced and made road-ready a few years ago. The 289ci V8 starts up and runs strong. The shifting feels great and the power steering and braking are nice and responsive. Overall it is a very nice driving Hawk.
Inside it is highly functional and comfortable. The front seats appear to have been reupholstered at some point though the headliner, carpets, door panels, dash, and rear seats all appear original. It has working lights, gauges, heater, clock, etc making it very nice for long drives. If anything it could use fresh carpet. Otherwise, it's in great overall shape.
Outside is straight and tidy yet the silver paint is ready for a refresh though it has well-preserved glass, stainless, chrome, badging, and lenses.
Overall this is a very cool, unmolested, and nicely equipped 58-year-old classic Studebaker with a short owners list and many more decades of enjoyment left in her. Contact Donn with questions, shipping, and financing options. 707-332-8331.
