The Hawks were restyled for '61, courtesy of designer Brooks Stevens, and the cars got a cleaner, up to date look. The GT Hawk also had higher performing engines, including supercharged options, and a more luxurious interior. Sadly, it was a case of too little, too late, and in late 1963 Studebaker closed its South Bend plant, and with it ended Hawk production once and for all. Studebaker itself would soldier on for only two more seasons.
