    Just remember... if you can see some rust, then there's usually a lot more that you can't see...

        Look at the floorboards and the rocker boxes (Between the rockers and the frame rails). Look at the trunk floors also.

            Don't forget to look inside the bottom edge of that rare and valuable smooth decklid, (should NOT have the overlay panel as on '62-'63) for rust hiding inside the stiffener double edge.

                With the GT Hawks in particular, it is much better to be conserned about the body and how much rust is present than the mechanical condition. Body parts for these cars are expensive and scarce, the mechanics are much more easily dealt with. If I was buying one, I wouldn't even be concerned if it ran. As for the ballpark price anywhere between $1000 and $15000 depending on condition.

                        It is possible that you will be looking at an Avanti powered Hawk. If so, it should have the "R" series emblems on it. If not, check the machined pad on the front of the engine and post the engine number and we will let you know. If the original invoice is available, that will list the options that it came with.
