Only Studebaker in all America offers the power-plus economy of a built-in supercharger. It’s standard on the Studebaker Golden Hawk.

And to match this power, Studebaker now offers the last word in driving control: Twin Traction lets either rear wheel take the traction to pull you out of mud, snow and slippery places, and to keep you safer on the road.

These are only two of many important advances in Studebaker ‘57. Why not see them all! Visit your Studebaker Dealer today and discover Craftsmanship makes the big difference!
