  • Bucket Seats I.D. want to know.

    http://s971.photobucket.com/albums/a...t=P1020223.jpg
    Can any members tell me what car these bucket seats belong to. If they are Hawk, is there any differance in the frames to Lark of the same year. I know the centre floor mounting bracket is different because of the shape of the two models floor pan but i am betting the frames are the same.

    Regards Brian.

    1962-64 Hawk buckets are slightly wider than 1962-66 sedan buckets. Your seats look like 1962 GT Hawk because of the type of covers but thats know way to know for sure. You would have to measure and compare them with another set.

      The Lark buckets will be larger, thicker, and bigger than the Hawk buckets. They will also have a large blank panel at the top of the bucket, rather than the pleats completely going over the top, as in the case of the Hawk buckets in the pictures.

        Yes, I think they belong to mine! Send them over and I will confirm it.

          Thanks Chris, I forgot to mention they are the buckets that use the center console, not the full width split bench type.
          Very funny Dave, I didn't think your Golden Hawk had any seats in it when you bought it.

              These appear to be re-covered close to original '62 GT Hawk buckets, as '63-'64 had the vertical pleats, but as has been mentioned it is hard to be sure because they are re-covered.

              Lark seats do not have map pockets in the back, and Hawks do.
              I would just get the Hawk floor mounting plate and put em in, if you have a C or K.
