Black in background, Studebaker?

It is, and it looks like it's from the late-1950's to me.

That's just what I was thinking. I'm only sorry I didn't edit my previous message to reflect that.

By the side trim I think that this is a 1959 mdoel, and therefore a Silver Hawk. The Hawk came in 1960 and had three chrome diagonal bars at the front end of the tailfins.

Mike, don't you think it could rather be a 1960 Hawk? Those chrome bars are really thin and they might not be visible on this pic. What is, though, is the chrome line around the wheel wells that the 1960 has and the 1959 doesn't in my book.

OK; I couldn't find when those chromed wheel arches came. Thanks. So agree on 1960 Hawk.

Though also in 1959 there seem to have been models with chrome arches... Cf. http://billstudepage.homestead.com/files/2005august.htm (scroll down about halfway).

You're right, and we're also both wrong for one very simple reason: this one is a hardtop, and I just read there were only pillared Hawks in 1959 and 1960.
So this is a 1958 Golden Hawk. You can see -barely- the chrome louvres the 1958 had at the BACK end of the tail fin.

They didn't make it easy for us ;) But still, I'm not really convinced. Black painted pillars will be difficult to see. The chrome line under the tailfin was slightly bent in 1958/58 and there was also chrome on top of the tailfin. Also the Golden Hawk usually had contrasting colourson the tailfins. And there shoud have been those small lights on top of the front fenders...
What looks like the louvres might well be the writing. So I'd stay with a 1959 Silver Hawk with V8 engine, though indeed a 1960 Hawk could be as well, with the triple louvres just not visible in this pic.

Nice analytic comments here.

I agree not a '57 or '58 since no fender top ornaments. Also, the chrome side trim is in the '59 to '61 style.

Nice pick up on the wheel opening trim. That was on all '60's and '61's but only came on 1959 V-8 models.

So we are still at '59 to '61.
1961 is out with no narrow fin-side color band.
Correct that '60 has 3 chrome louvers at the front fin bases. I don't see them here but feel it's likely the picture.
Rear fin-tip emblem looks too short to read "Silver Hawk".
Let's stay with 1960.
