There are three releases of the Studebaker Golden Hawk. In February 1958 the first two appeared. They were this mechanical version with the friction flywheel motor and the blue freewheeling version. Later in 1960 it was given the S treatment receiving seats and suspension and also becoming truly golden, being vacuum plated in gold.

The 1958 mechanical release, 211m, is always white with gold painted side flashes. It was only produced for one year. The mechanicals all seemed to disappear in 1959. It is consequently quite rare, less than 100,000 were produced. It is the most highly valued of the Studebakers and there are no listed variation.

At last- it has taken me a number of years to track one of these down. Got this one at the Slough Toy Fair in September 2008. The friction motor is a bit worn, but I don't count that, I've filled the slot and that is what matters. I think this completes the set of Studies for me.
