  • Hawk tissue dispenser

    OK, I give up, what the hell is this ? I've never seen a factory tissue dispenser like this.

        I thought it was a generic tissue dispenser that someone put a hawk emblem on as I never have seen one like it in person or in the accessory books. But it would be cool if it was some rare rare accessory also.

            I've never seen a Hawk emblem with a background like that rayed pattern. Could be a Western Auto or JC Whitney kinda thing that they fitted to a generic dispenser for kicks. Kinda like the aftermarket "Studebaker" ignition keys with the Studebaker badge or Lark bird on them. Cute - but not genuine Studebaker.
            Pickin' nits maybe, but that Hawk emblem didn't debut until the '57 models. This seller says it's apprpriate for '56 - maybe as a retrofit![}]

                It does have the special mounting hardware that is required for the fiberglass dashboards. However he has it facing the wrong way. All the 56 dispensers I have are with the staright pivoting mounting bracket.

                    It seems the bidders must think it's a rare item the way they are bidding. You can't blame the seller, he started it at a fair $25.00.

                        It looks like a regular tissue dispenser that someone put that logo on. It looks like a later Hawk emblem on something round, maybe a horn button.

                            Yeah, JP.... Maybe I should make up some tissue dispensers and tack repro Hawk birds on them. Don't hafta provide an AC #, just explain that it was a super limited edition kinda thing! And it would be, really, cause I wouldn't make more'n ah dozen of them or so![}]
