For 1959 changes included new tailfins, with the “Silver Hawk” script moved to the fins instead of on the trunk lid (where new individual block letters spelling out STUDEBAKER were placed), with a new Hawk badge in between the two words. The parking lights moved to the side grilles from the front fenders, chrome moldings around the windows were added, and the interior was somewhere in between the two former models’ levels of luxury. For 1960, Studebaker dropped the Silver part of the name, leaving “just plain” Hawk. The 1961 models saw the limited return of a second paint color, beige, in a stripe along the base of the fin between the two lower moldings. Interiors gained the option of wide, comfortable bucket seats; customers could opt to team their 289 V8 with a new four-speed Borg-Warner manual transmission, the same model used in the Chevrolet Corvette.
