View Full Version : Hawk fender ID please

I have a right front fender for a Stude Hawk. There is no inner fender attached. It is part number 303040. The parts book says it fits 1959 to 1961 Hawks. Will this fender work on other coupes and hardtops from 1953 to 64? I heard that they may all be the same. Thanks.

Yes, it is the same stamping...
...but the trim holes will be in different locations.

For example... many early cars came without wheel opening trim... so If your fender has them, it's a little more work. Similarly... GT Hawks have the large slot and 2-holes on the top of the fender for the parking lights... no other C/K's have these.

Having said all that... IF I needed a fender for ANY C/K '53-'64... your's will fit.

And the 55 is a bit different at the bottom front. Just a cutout I think.

No, '55 has a little welded on standoff for the lower bolt on the parking light housings. No big deal unless you *have* a '55 and are trying to fit an incorrect fender - even so no big deal if you have an old fender to cut one off of.
