        This dash appears to be stock for a 1964 Hawk. Black around the gauges and woodgrain to the right of it, and a smooth crash pad looks correct. This appears to need a LOT of rust repair. The drivers door appears to have rust through and it looks as though every floor component needs replacement.

        The knee padding is also stock for 1964.

          The dash has a pad built into the top and bottom of the passenger side.

          It looks to have been designed well -so well that it's hard to notice at first.

          It's hard to tell from the pics, but it's possible the whole dash may be covered in vinyl?

            Looks to have had some rust repair work done to it once before. Take a look at the pic with the open trunk lid. Now that is some quality bondo work there Earl.[:0][V]

                  No wonder it looked Pro!!

                  I've owned a '62 and '63... they sure made some great improvements in '64.

                  In fact, lately I've been wondering what the status in on my old '63 which I sold to a guy in Australia. I keep hoping to spot it in an over-seas picture post here on the Forum or in a TW article.

                  It was a Rosemist on Rosemist 4 speed that had been redone with black interior. The car was in great condition until some joker plowed into it while it was parked innocently in my drive way!! I collected new sheet metal for it which I gave to the buyer. He had intended to restore it. This was about 5 years ago, so it should be back on the road by now.

                  Finding the cars whereabouts might make for a fun over-seas adventure

                    This one looks quite original, just a bit worn and rusty!
                    It has early '63 Parking Lights and side grilles, it may have been in a fender bender years ago.

                          I don't like the looks of the rust in the passenger side floor. It looks like the rust has gotten to the door post which could cause a structural integrity problem. I tried to repair the floor in a 62 Hawk with extensive rust in the door post. It took major surgery to do the repairs and I wasn't completely satisfied when I was done. Bud

                            I don't see a lot of rust, but I see a fair amount of grass on the ground (Ducking....)
