  • GT Eye Candy- picture edited

    I was looking at Myers' site a couple weeks ago and just can't get this one out of my head:



    This is one of their restos, and is for sale ($50K[:0]). Makes me long for a good donor roller for my 62 GT 4-speed

    EDITED FOR PICTURE SIZE

    Mike Myer is restoring my Avanti currently. I saw this car about the time this photo was taken. The detail and workmanship that was put into this car is absolutely top notch in every aspect. For more absolutely stunning pictures go to this link:

        I am a fine one to talk about pictures on the Forum, but for the first several minutes of download, all that I saw were trees. Also, the picture requires left to right scrolling. Maybe it could be cropped and sized.

        It looks like a nice Hawk, but for $50K I wouldn't expect it to be modified and the reflections and trim alignment do not look top notch.

          I have a rust free 62 GT with rebuilt motor, new interior and numerous parts that I'd sell you for $5k. Make a nice resto project itself, or primo body for you 4 spd GT.

              I am pretty sure Mike Myer owns THE one and only '63 Avanti Red Metallic, (Light to Medium Maroon) GT Hawk, but I think it is a '63 not this one.

              This one could use some clear '64 Parking Light lenses, Tusk Ivory Wheels, and the Chevron farther from the GT Script and maybe was not block sanded over the repairs before paint, but looks quite good. []

              It must be that Bob Peterson's Hawk was photoed in direct sunlight and or repainted slightly lighter than the correct Bordeaux Red, which SHOULD look quite Dark.

                Love the car. Is it me or is it sitting higher than normal? Maybe all the ones I'm used to seeing have shrunk

                  Sorry, Gary. I knew somebody would be mad about the size of the picture. I posted it directly from Myers' site, so there was no way to resize it.

                  The car does not belong to Myers'. They restored the car for a customer and are now selling it for her. I bet the only ripples you're seeing are due to the photo, not the car. You can see pix of the entire resto on their site.

                    Just load the image to your PhotoBucket (or other) account and choose the size you want...

                      First a Baja Avanti .. and now a 4X4 Hawk ...

                      I agree its sitting HIGH, this is the first Hawk I have seen that one
                      can see the top of the front tire in the wheel opening, AND almost see
                      the top of the REAR tire. Those look like period correct bias plys so
                      its not like another case of 70 series radials messing things up.

                      Other then the ride height, looks like a nice resto.

                          It may be a little high (or the tires a little undersized), but not much.

                          Here's my '63 compared. Mine was right at stock ride height. They were a little nose high new...





                          I have seen pictures of these cars being photographed for ads with the opposite side from the picture jacked up to lower the car for the picture side of the picture.

                          They do look better (to me) with the wheel wells filled by having enough sidewall and/or with the car lower.

                            I knew that, just didn't feel like doing it.

                            Besides, if you save it to your computer as it is, it makes an EXCELLENT desktop bsckground
