Though Studebaker in the early 1960s had a reputation generally for working with outdated models, the Brooks Stevens redesign of the Hawk brought South Bend’s grand touring up to the moment with other sport luxury vehicles such as the contemporary Thunderbird and Riviera. As we see on this 1962 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk for sale on Hemmings.com, the seller picked up on the “sport” side of things with the five-spoke wheels; we’d like to see the engine to see if he made it any sportier underhood. From the seller’s description:
