Was the standard engine offered for the GT Hawks the 259 or the 289? I know the 1960 and 1961 Hawks came with the 289 but was wondering if the GT's took a step backward, or a some might say the 259 would have been a step forward LOL.

289 2bbl was the standard base engine. Only exports were any different.

Bez is correct as usual, but there are people who gut a 259 block and install 289 guts. Brother in law's Avanti was such an animal. "Tech" even installed oil filter on full flow adapter on bracket on water manifold. oil pressure was ok so i guess a restricted fitting was added to one of the lines. nice job overall but to nice a car for B in law! doofus
