  • What kind of car is this?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=4546344389

    This hawk is listed with as 1957 Hawk a project car. It looks to have 1956 fiberglass fins, and a GT roof line. Looks like a GT dash, but I can't tell if it is really installed or just hanging loose (big gaps at the door jam). The description says 1957, but I can't tell that. Looks like a GT with earlier fins grafted on. Anybody got a real way to tell?

    Maybe it started out as a '57, but it's now a mongrel. I wonder what the maker had in mind. Looks like a huge project which will never amount to a car worth anything. Just my opinion.

      I would say it's a 62-to-64 GT Hawk going by the roof-line & the 62 GT hood with a earlier Hawk grill shell.The trunk lid is also off a 57-58 Hawk.All in all a real mish-mash & not worth bothering with except for the parts it may yield

        trunk lid is actually '56 as are fins. Doors are 57-64.

        Looks like it could be made to drive fairly easily... but the schizophrenic connection of body parts...?!

          That serial # says it started life as a 1956 Golden Hawk from the Los Angeles plant. ('56 was the last year of operation for the LA plant)
          A good look at the body tag might confirm that.

          Miscreant at large.
