As of late there have been 2 GT Hawks on Ebay as having 259 engines,is this correct? As I have seen 6 cyl. GT's and was under the mpression

GT's came with a 289 c/i motor,unless 259 was a special order item.

AFAIK, any 6-cyl and 259" would have been export only. All others were 289". Many are surprised there were so many 210hp 2-bbl single exhaust GTs built. The 225hp 4-bbl was an option and the 289hp R2 a very rare option.

Unless they are Canadian Built, the chances are they have "Replacement" 259 Engines, or they are 289's and the owners do not know the difference. :(

For the three years, all that were to be sold in the USA had 289s. Sixes and 259s were available and built for export for all three model years.
