    And to think that I thought the guy with the 4-speed was confused. A 1962 GT Golden Night Hawk! [:0] Just think your chance to own a rare one of none!
    Seriously, this might be a nice car, but when I see ads like this I wonder where the person got the car and who in the world they have been talking to!

      It's all right, but I'd rather have the GT Night Rider Hawk. I love the sequential lights in the side grilles...

      I think that was only available as a 63, though.

          There was a fellow in these parts that grafted a Cougar rear onto a GT Hawk body and had sequential lights. I do not recall what sheet metal was on the front. If Leonard has any pictures from a Tutwiler meet in the late '70's he may have a picture.

                Leonard, I love it. I hate it. It's OK. Not too good.

                I cannot decide what I think about it. I'd have to see it in person to make up my mind...

                  That picture was taken in 1971. I wonder if the car is still around.

                    Thinking about the amount of work that went into that makes me shudder. I wonder how many dozens of hours?[:0]

                        I remember it still being around in the 1975 - 1976 time period and appearing at the Tutwiler meet. Martin Pajka will remember it and knew who owned it. I seem to recall it was from the Richmond area.

                            The landau bars (functional in this case, unlike the late 60s T-Birds) and padded convertiable top give it a "Youropeean" flair.

                            Wonder what James Mason would think?
