1964 Studebaker GT Hawk

Is the '64 GT Hawk resin body to retrofit the 53 Starliner still available? I believe it was made by a John Heyer. Or where would I post hoping to find one for sale?

I have one, and it is very nice. Works with the AMT 1953 Studebaker.

Got it today. Turning this into a '64 likely is my next project.

very nice! do you mind sharing how much it cost? I am thinking probably 50 or 60 $? well worth it from the looks of it, even a nice box

J.B., it was $80 and yes, it is very nice. I want to replicate the '64 I once owned.

Kris, the Hawk will be stock, like mine was. But I was thinking of turning the donor '53 into something fearful I once saw at an all Studebaker show in Peterborough. Someone had taken a '54 and installed the drivetrain and interior of a Buick Grand National and painted the car black. It was so well done, it didn't look modified at all.

yes Bob I believe that is the idea. I have a 53 stude panel van from jimmy flintstone I think that I had planned for the kit I already have; I need to buy another to do this GT Hawk, always one of my favorite designs to come out of America.

I remember seeing a black one sitiing under the canopy of the hotel I was checking in. It was around '78. That image create an intense desire to own one. It wasn't until '95 that I got the one above. And what a car it was!
