Riding on a powder-coated 1962 Studebaker GT Hawk chassis, the body is finished in two-tone Cardinal Red with a Silver Micro-Flake top and with hand-drawn pinstripes on the hood and trunk lid.

The custom interior features silver and black vinyl seats and a steering column and wheel sourced from a 1962 Studebaker Hawk.

Power comes from a Tri-Power 348cid 1960 Chevrolet V8 upgraded with ported camel-hump heads, oversized valves, and hydraulic lifters. It’s paired with a 3-speed Turbo 350 automatic transmission.

The odometer shows 30,000 miles, although true mileage is unknown.

This Studebaker Starliner’s auction ends May 5 at 12:00 p.m. PDT.
