Studebaker continued with the Golden and Silver Hawk models in 1958 and also added the upscale Packard Hawk that year. The Packard Hawk was based on the 1958 Golden Hawk and featured a distinctive hood and grille design inspired by period Italian sports cars. Like the discontinued ’57 Golden Hawk “400,” the Packard Hawk featured a full leather interior.
1958 was the final year for the Golden Hawk and Packard Hawk.
