DU SITE D'ENCHERES <<EBAY-USA>>
  • hôte : e-bay, le fameux site d'enchères aux USA qui comprend toujours entre 1 et 2 millions d'objets à enchérir. C'est celui aussi qui a acheté notre iBazar national avec ses 4 à 600 mille objets aux enchères et qui est devenu ebay.fr
  • voitures américaines : il y en a toujours beaucoup avec de superbes photos sur le site américain. Le site français propose en général entre 2 et 4 pages d'objets et de voitures avec une certaine modestie pour les photos. Ceci va sans doute changer
  • photos : elles sont du propriétaire-vendeur

CE QU'EN DIT LE VENDEUR

Great driver, rare stick shift LOW RESERVE

Vehicle Description : 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk. Rare Stick shift car.

Options: 3 speed Overdrive, Hill Holder, Power Steering, Tinted glass, Power Brakes, Back up lamps, Deluxe push button radio/rear seat speaker/twin antennas, Heater/defroster

All Golden Hawks are getting hard to find, but this example is among the most desirable since it is equipped with the rare stick shift, overdrive transmission. One of the biggest drawbacks with the 56 models is the factory Ultramatic automatic transmission. While the Packard Ultramatic is a nice transmission when properly maintained and adjusted, it has a spotty reputation in the Golden Hawks. It is expensive to repair, shops that understand it are few and far between and while it worked well in the more sedate Packards, it was a poor choice for the brutal acceleration that the big 352 cu.in engine delivers in the lighter Golden Hawk.  Not only do you get the more reliable standard transmission, the overdrive allows a lower rear axle ratio for faster acceleration and a higher overdrive ratio for fuel economy.  Just 786 overdrive cars were built out of a total production of only 4073 Golden Hawks built. Of those, most did not feature power steering or power brakes, only 67 were so equipped and this has to be one of a hand full surviving. 

The NADA Classic Car value guide would list this car as a average car, or a "20 footer". Nothing on this car is perfect on close examination, but looks great from 20 feet. As you can see from the pictures here, and on the link to more detailed pictures, the car looks great, but is not a 'show' car. The amateur paint and body work has it's flaws, the nice interior could use a good cleanup, the chrome while presentable, is not perfect. The good news is the car has very little rust, the floors are rock solid, the car runs and drives just fine and most everything works although I'm still playing with the clock.

I received the maintenance records for the first 100,000 miles of the cars life with the car and the records track every gallon of gas, oil change and repairs. The engine was rebuilt about 30,000 miles ago, than the car sat for about 20 years before I purchased the it. After buying the car, I replaced all the wheel cylinders, the master cylinder, brakes shoes and hoses, radiator and heater hoses, added 4 new radial tires, a rebuilt brake booster, a new voltage regulator and battery.  I rebuilt the carb, did a tune up, changed all the fluids, repacked the front and rear wheel bearings, replaced the overdrive and horn relay, the temp and gas gage, the tachometer, rebuilt the tach sender and much more.

I installed new carpets and sill plates, repaired the radio, detailed a bit under the hood and have just been driving the car for a few months, checking everything out. 

The NADA value for a 'average' 56 Golden Hawk is $15,300 and I just sold a similar Ultramatic 56 Golden Hawk on Ebay for over $16,000. The good news is that I got a much better deal on this car, and my reserve is well under the average book value so bid away.
