    Dan, here are pictures of a 64 Hawk A/C prop rod. First picture shows the difference of the dark A/C rod vs light non A/C rod. The second shot shows the mounting hole for the prop rod, higher on the baffle. Third shot shows prop rod at rest, and fourth shot shows rod at work. Dan

    I let Bill Moffet have it for his award winning GT Hawk, He swapped me a 63 unit he had, so it's in the trunk at the present time.

    Clonelark, where is your condenser?

    Yes, that's the part I created from the factory print.

    The one on my 64 GT is just straight, except where its bent to hold it in the header panel.

    Dan, I won't be home till Monday; can take a picture then. But in the meantime, check old threads, I thought I posted a photo a few years ago to this subject. Dan

    Years ago when faced with the same problem on a GT Hawk during a A/C installation, I simply bent up one to provide the necessary clearances and still mimic the original. No judge ever questioned it's authenticity at several national meets. You'll need a piece of rod slightly longer than the stock unit and of approx. the same diameter. Bend it to provide the necessary offset, where needed, and otherwise match the original profile. I no longer have the car, so I can't offer a picture or dimensions.

    I have the factory print for the part. I created a solidworks file of it (although there was one dimension missing - I think it was a radius). The problem is I don't know where I put the print, even though I know I still have it, and I don't know what happened to the file. Big help, huh? But at least you now know that the SNM does have the print for this in their archives. I never did figure out how it would fit under the hood without hitting something. I'll look for my print.

    I can't help with an original one... but I do make aluminum hood supports that will hold the hood open (and will not let the wind move it anywhere) for car shows or maintenance. I have been selling them for years... The Hawk rod sells for $25 plus shipping. millersigns1@gmail.com

    That is correct.
