The white Studebaker is a 1956 Flight Hawk or Power Hawk.
Only difference between them is that the Flight Hawk had
a inline six while the Power Hawk had the 259 cui V8.

Absolutely true...and judging by its tail, I don´t see the left exhaust, which makes me think it is a flight hawk

The Flight/Power name designations were on the trunk lid.

We cannot conclude positively that this is a Flight Hawk rather than Power Hawk due to lack of dual exhausts.
The following is a copy/paste from what I posted for another '56 Hawk.
For the reasons stated, will leave here as "Flight".

[[[[ Did a quick look-over of the 1956 Studebaker Accessory Guide.
It appears dual exhausts were standard on Golden Hawks and optionally available on other V-8 models (meaning the Sky Hawk and Power Hawk).
They were apparently not available on 6's (Flight Hawk).
So we cannot say for certain this is a Flight Hawk. Could be a Power Hawk without the dual exhaust option.
Listing as Flight Hawk would be appropriate though (in the absence of more info on the pictured car) since we know ALL of them had single exhaust.
Here is a link to the guide, for any interested party:
