I have since purchased a correct ('54) door for my '53, so the Sky Hawk door is now for sale.
Thanks, that means that the Sky Hawk prototype on page 2 of this month's Turning Wheels had a 1953-1955 door with the long swoop.
It is probably safe to assume that 1956 Flight Hawk hardtops also used these new doors with the short swoop.
I still do not know about C bodied 1956 Hawks. I would guess that they did not change.
I am still looking for definite information, not my assumptions or guesses.
I have a 56 Flight Hawk hardtop 56g-k7 & I can verify that the doors have the short swoops, same as the sky hawks & the golden hawks. We found our car in Canada, on of the 52 built in Ontario
