I pulled the seats, interior panels and carpet from the Looks Like Hell Hawk today. Found two brand new sets of plug wires under the rear seat along with a cheap set of needle nose pliers. [:p]

It looks like the floors had been tackled multiple times by a 10th grade shop class. While there was only one small area with rust through, there are patches on top of patches. It turns out the carpet will not work in my '62 as this car has 2 under seat heaters and I tore some of it getting it out (it was heavily glued).

Here are some pictures:

So, is it a parts car or can it (economically) be restored?

John,

It would take a lot to restore the car, but if someone was interested in driving a "beater", it would fill the bill. I took it out for a short trip yesterday and it did fine. My driving may be limited as it has an upside down milk crate for a seat right now. I was hoping that someone closer than JP might have a couple of old seats that I could put in it.

JP,

I wish that we had thought of that too. Perhaps we can work out a deal and N8 can bring them to his place, which would cut some time off my trip. Since I gor the rotted black and white rear seat out of a '63, can you match the color? :D

Dick,

This is actually the POR Hawk as someone has covered the entire exterior with POR 15. In the alternative, it is also known as the Looks Like Hell Hawk.
