  • Save a GT Hawk for the love of God!

    I know that I already posted another Craigslist collection not five minutes ago but I could not bear the thought of lumping this tough old bird with the others. With that horribly peeling paint and El Cheapo upholstery job someone here should save it. Would you make money? No. You will, however, ease your conscience by rescuing an extremely rare and beautiful car from the ranks of the automotive undead.

        The wheels are interesting. Never saw any like that. Anyone know what those (I assume aftermarket, or maybe from another make) wheels are from?

          Those wheels look like the famed "snowflakes" that appeared exclusively on the late 70's - early 80's Pontiac Firebird. Thunder Chicken galore!

          That being said, due to the shadiness of the ad, it could really be anything.

            In the listing it states; "...
            vintage "Rocket" wheels...
            ".

              I wonder where some of these people get their production numbers. Probably off some Internet site.

                  If he where to cut his price about in half he would be priced where it should be and would most likely sell.

                      Usually I lean towards the lower end of the value scale compared to some here. Excepting the glass fenders (that will never rust), all the non-factory items are very easily found and replaced at a nominal cost. You'd have to dig deep for the interior to be right, but you might find a very nice set of used GT Hawk insides for a reasonable price since there are a boatload of GT's around. Paint is paint for this vintage Stude... Though I don't think this car would compete with some of the very nice original or restored samples out there(or justify a full $$$ restoration)...... it is a 64', currently tagged, driving, and ahead of a lot of similarly listed Hawks with ridiculous pricing. You'd need to eyeball this car in person, for sure. But unless there's significant rust (out) in this SW car....$5K looks OK from here (Mass)
