  • Hawks Fins need Bling

    Hi, I have a 58 Packard Hawk, The gold Mylar inlay in the fins needs to be replaced. I contacted Studebaker International and they told me it was no longer available Would anyone have any knowledge or what I can do? Thanks, Frank/Maine Hawk

    Have you tryed the Mopar parts vendors? I would think the Plymouth Fury and others had a same, or close enough Gold Foil.

        This Mylar has been reproduced at least a couple of times. You might get lucky and find a vendor or individual that still has enough for two fins. At least try all the major Studebaker vendors before you give up.

        You can get it reproduced yourself, but you have to purchase a whole roll. I know that there was an outfit in Connecticut that made what I believe was the first reproduction run of Hawk Mylar. Some of it has a different pattern. By now, few know what the correct pattern is.
