I noticed a near complete 64 GT Hawk dash on Ebay last week with poor pictures.

One of the pictures showed the rear of the dash which had a Avanti style tachometer module dangling from the harness. It made me wonder.

I decided to emailed the lister and asked him to send me a picture of the gauges. He complied and sent me this picture.

I may have to send the speedo out to get restored but hopefully I will be able to just take it apart and clean it up.

I've been looking for a 160MPH speedo for 3 years which was the last piece that I needed for my Superhawk Clone.

The guy sent the dash to me this afternoon and can't wait to see it!

There has been one like it at York and Reedsville for year or two. It was nicer but $400.

That is a wicked cool score. Good job hunting out the sleeper item.

That is a good score! In the last couple years there was also a complete dash from a Super Lark at York; I didn't have the cash on me or I would have popped for it myself.

Awesome score. It really pays to look at the details. Always an inspiration to see what folks come up with, thanks for sharing.

My last great ebay score was a 650 CFM Thunder series Edelbrock with the electric choke, $300+ new, for $90 with shipping! When I got it I went out to the garage all excited, opened the box there it was as described with a little bend in the linkage. Straightened it out in a few seconds and in the process of checking out my handiwork the carb flipped out of my hand landed on the front fender on the Avanti and put a deep 2 inch scratch in the fender through the car cover!

$90 for the carb, $400 for the repaired fender.

HAhaha! Sounds like my usual luck. But a few months ago, I saw an aluminum intake with carb on ebay for minumum $24.95. All dirty and fuzzy pic. I bid at the last few secs and got it for that. Turned out to be a dusty, low mileage edelbrock 600 on an offenhauser dual port for sbc.

Lots of people buy carbs based on how clean they look on the outside, I always cruise edelbrock and AFB for bargains.

I bet that 64 dash will bring back a couple of bucks cleaned up a little without the gages. Presentation is everything, Right JDP?
