Yes, that was an original combination. In this brochure:

just imagine those colors applied to the car in the middle. Glenbrook Green (metallic) top, and Seaside Green body. That combination had an order number of 5624. That number may or may not appear on the build order for the car if you were to order a copy.
You might want to purchase a couple back issues of Turning Wheels for the Hawk articles. October 1992 (all years Hawks) and December 2000
(1956 Hawks).

Joe, IF your Hawk still has it's original glove box, there's a chance that the paint code tag is still glued to the underside of the box's bottom.[:0] You might take a look and see.:)
