Wikipedia deals with the top-of-the-line Golden Hawk model here. And I posted about Studebaker's hellish 1955 facelift of the Starliner coupe here. That, in turn, led to the 1956 facelift that became the Hawk.
Hawks were given a small facelift for 1957 and until the 1962 model year changes were trivial. What I'm calling the Second Series Hawk appeared as a major facelift for 1962. I will deal with that in a later post.
