Greetings, All,

Can anyone describe the screw which holds on the headlight rim bezel on a '63-64 GT? It looks like it should be a 10-32 about 3" long, but as much description as possible would help. Also, part numbers and any source for same would be greatly appreciated.

thnx, jv.

according to the parts book, the one for regular Hawks is a no. 8x1-1/8" oval phillips head sheet metal screw. So I assume that the one for a GT would be similar although maybe a different length.

They are a machine screw, not sheet metal.

Hi, JDP,

I assumed SASCO would have them if anyone would. However, I had spent a half-hour on SASCO's web site and if there is a way to find the headlamp screws without a part number, I couldn't make it happen. Thanks to Dick for the P/N and to JDP for suggesting SASCO, because once I got started looking around, naturally, I had been meaning to order some parts for my truck, so those two screws ended up costing me $300.

thnx, jv.
