    The Serial Number is not coded as to month of production.

    However, I can tell you the car was built on August 29, 1963; an early-production 1964 model year Hawk.

    Engine #R1865 would have been shipped in an Avanti, not a Hawk. A 1964-production R1 engine for a Hawk built August 29 would have had an engine number like JTH327 or JTH328. BP

        Yes and no. That car was not built with an R-series engine; just a "regular" 289.

        If it now has a genuine Avanti R1 in it with all the proper fitments for an R1-powered Hawk, it might even enhance the value.

        It kind of depends on the car's overall condition and who is buying it. It might be a wash as to value up or down because of the different engine and would be hard to "say." I'd imagine opinions on this would be all over. BP

          I would say it depends on how they're trying to sell it.....

            Yes, if it is being marketed as an original R-engined car, it is not. The car's original engine number was PK326. It originally had 4-bbl carburetor Option #30. BP
