When I was a kid there was a guy on the other end of the block that had one painted a hideous green. It had the optional wheels on it too. I thought he had added them but he told me when his uncle bought it new (it was only 2 years old at the time) those were the wheels that were on it from the dealers!

The back end reminds me slightly of the Jensen Interceptor...

The best of the first OHV V/8's in the USA were made in South Bend . Studebaker had the understressed , capable , overbuilt and over Engineered V/8 to be capable of Supercharging . For the '57 MY , the Studebaker Goden Hawk was Paxton Supercharged on the 289 CID vesion . Also at FoMoCo , it provided the same through the 4 BBL Carb Supercharger set up as a Factory Option in '57 on the 312 CID Y Block .  Studebaker just reinstated the "Puffer" for more Bolt on Power to enhance the Avanti .. the Hawk was added Wink I won't go into why and how here . The '64 MY , the 289 was punched out to 304 . Available with a Supercharger  Smile yet again .  Thanx ..

I had a Lark Daytona R4 with the four speed trans. That was te dual quad 304.5 engine.

It would hold it's own against the Mustangs, Nova's and even the Impala SS's (small blocks) of the day. With a bigger bump stick it was even a rival for the GTO"s!

Wish I would have hung on to that car! really rare today!

Really great job.  That's a 1/32 too isn't it?  All that detailing in a very small package.  Super nice work.  Yes

Just keep picking away at it...
