The Golden Hawk was produced from 1956 to 1958. It was powered by a Packard engine, a 4.7-liter V8 that developed 275 horsepower with a compressor. The Golden Hawk represented Studebaker's sporty model. The high price and an economic recession in the late 1950s partially compromised its success.

CORGI

Corgi is one of the historic car modeling brands. The Corgis, launched in 1956, were the first ever to feature windows, reproduced in transparent plastic. Corgi were a Mettoy brand, a company founded in 1933 by the German immigrant Philipp Ullmann, based in Northampton and then in Swansea (Wales). The Corgis were made of zamac, approximately 1:43 scale, and were soon equipped with many working parts such as opening doors and bonnets or suspensions. The vehicle models known in films and television series were particularly successful. In 1964 a further range of smaller models in approximately 1:66 scale was introduced. It was first called "Husky" and then renamed "Corgi Juniors" in 1970. In the 1970s many models in the main range were made in 1:36, but in the following decade Corgi again used 1:43 scale for cars and 1:50 for commercial vehicles, moving production to China. In 1999, Corgi took over the Lledo brand, also continuing production of the 1:43 Vanguards range.
