The no-longer-Silver Hawk was now just the Studebaker Hawk, and was back for another drubbing in the market. The good news was that both the 6 and the overmatched 259 were shown the door, and the 289 was back under the hood where it belonged, putting out either 210 or 225 horsepower, depending on whether a 2 bbl or 4 bbl carb was chosen. However, sales were down to an abysmal 4,280 units (with an additional handful of six cylinder cars for export). This shouldn’t be a surprise. This shouldn’t be a surprise. While the Lark got a variety of full color ads in popular magazines, the Hawk got a black and white piece telling America about what a sports car it was. A cheap sports car, even. Yes, an American sports car, complete with the same bench seat and column gearshift from the days when the car was still a Studebaker Champion. America knew what a sports car looked like in 1960, and this was not it.
