Or steering wheel center cap, whichever you call it, for a 57 Golden Hawk. Our original one has multiple cracks. It has white background with gold emblem.

Thanks!

You may have to settle for a different Background Color than White, other hawks have much easier to find "Hawk Bird" Type Horn Buttons than a Super Rare '57 Golden Hawk one.

Most any GH ones you may find Used have the same "crazing" in the plastic as yours has from being 59 Years old.

There are lots of '59 Lark, Black background, with a Chrome Silver Hawk in the center.

You can even get a NOS '58 Packard "Hawk" type Horn Button: 1546599.

Yes, StudeRich, I was told about the 58 Packard one. It looks very similar except that it has a gold background. I may end up with that and keep the original as well.

Here is the one you need with NO crazing or cracking which is quite rare, only a little peeling Chrome Paint inside that may be fixable.

That one looks nice! It says it came from a GH, but I think that I read that the chrome emblem with white background came with the Lark.

No, '59 only Larks were Black with a Chrome "Hawk" Bird.

The eBay one is actually FROM a '57 GH.

the one pictured sure looks like a 57 silver hawk, GH in 57 should have a gold hawk in center, the pictured one looks silver to me, I might be wrong.

This 57 G Hawk I used to have came with its original steering wheel in a box. it was converted to a GT column/wheel years ago, It was the horn button that came with it and I thought that's what is was...... Thanks guys, fixed the ad and learned something today.

This is what we have. I don't know if it's original or not. I saw one in the Studebaker catalogue, but it was out of stock. 62321
