  • 1957 GoldenHawk needs rescued

    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum. My brother works for the local auctioneer getting vehicles running for the sales. He described to me a 1957 Golden Hawk that is probably a fixer upper. It does have some extra parts in the trunk. Grills etc. It is kind of a cool car and I don't want it to go to the crusher. It sells this Friday near Wichita Kansas . I would be willing to help find more info if anyone is interested. There a few other cool cars and a lot of junk headed to the crusher I'm sure. Dan

            In the Auction notice it says the Hawk has power windows. I wonder if they are factory installed or aftermarket? It also mentions a two door Nash sportscar. I wonder if it is a Nash-Healey?

              I would imagine they are talking about the Nash Metropolitan in the pictures.

                I don't know. They do mention the Metropolitan by name in the text of the ad.

                  Looks like the interest in the car so far, including me, is everyone far away from Kansas. Hope someone on the forum near by can go and save it.

                      Sure, if you know how to fly a plane.
                      The real question is how long would it take to make it air worthy.

                        hearse

                        I think the hearse is a 59 cadilac. There are some extra grills and a dual 4 barrel intake with dual air cleaners for the old cadilacs. They think the hearse was originally a ambulance. There is a spot on top of it where the red light was. The other Cadillac is a 59 with every option. power seats. power windows. cruise control etc.

                          That Caddy Hearse does look Odd, like it is an earlier Packard or Caddy rounded back Body with '59 Cad. Tail Lights!

                            It is a Eureka body hearse as per the description. http://www.coachbuilt.com/bui/e/eureka/eureka.htm

                            True, it does look older than a Superior bodied counterpart.
