    GT Hawk/Vinyl Top

    Hawk Vinyl Top.jpgJust got my problem child GT Hawk back from Fowler's Auto Upholstery Shop, Stockton CA...sporting her new vinyl top! It was about a $1300 project....(no beer money for several weekends to come). The headliner had to be pulled back...(without removing the windshield no less), the stainless strip across the top had to be removed and very slight rust damage repaired. I'm pleased....it turn out good. If you need upholstery work done in Northern California I can recommend Dino at Fowler's.....always done very good work for me.

    Looks great Lou. Just think of all the young girls that will be admiring you in the beautiful car. You won't get those looks drinking beer.

    Very nice job that appears much like the original, at least in the photo. MUCH better choice than any spray-on type fake vinyl.

    Looks great, Lou! A '64 GT with vinyl top would probably have been my new Studebaker-of-choice, back in the day.
