View Full Version : Body: Silver Hawk "side grills" - factory installed or not ??

My '57 Silver Hawk does not have grills in the small openings just above the bumper on each side of the "main" grill, like you would see in a '58 Golden Hawk. I have seen some '57 Silver Hawks that have them - is that just an owner "add-on"?

YES, those matching Side Grilles on '57's definitely were Owner Added.

They were never Original on a '56 or a '57, used only on '58 to '61 Hawks with varying Insert "Pans" with and without Parking Light provisions.

You either DRILL the '57 Pans for the Grilles or use '58 ones, otherwise with '59-'61 Pans you have an unwanted "Dimple" and a Hole for Parking lights. :(
