I'm restoring a 64 Hawk that was pretty complete. In my glove box there is a hole with the light behind it but no lens. I was talking to a guy that said that it may have come that way from the factory but just seems odd. Does anyone have a lens in glove box ? What to keep it as original as possible. Thanks

We brought in 5 new RHC GT Hawks assembled at South Bend & none had the glove box lens although the light was fitted. I did the pre delivery service on the 5 & still have one. I do recall seeing the lens in some Cruisers.

Larks and Avantis had the lenses, but on the Hawks the bulb is behind the hole and doesn't protrude through the hole. They do not have lenses.

Domed or Flat? The '63 Lark Vanity had a Flat one with a chrome ring, that may be what someone added.
The '64 to '66 Lark Types have a deep protruding domed lens.

I have never seen a '56 to '64 Hawk Glove box Light with a Lens.

Not sure who's correct but my 64 Parts car is very original and it don't have a cover, maybe they ran out of them and since this was the last GT they just done away with them, Mine is SN# 73364, don't know if that is early or late or in the middle. Body # 1169.

That is my way of thinking too Bob. Mine is 11255 and it was built in Oct 63 . It looks unfinished but if that's the way it came from the factory it's good enough for me.
