It was supposedly built to Thunderbird specifications and had body reinforcement built in. It had a removable top which wasn't much.

      I saw one of these at a champ car race at Darlington Raceway some where around 1954-1956 in bright red.. Letting the top down was quit an exercise..

        One of the guys in Northern California shortened a 58 station wagon by taking out the rear door area. The toughest part was the roof, because the roofline crease tapers as it goes back. It had a primer paint job, a cow horn, and the license plate said uglier than you.

        It was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, he lost his life at too young an age when he crashed his airplane.

          Not too bad, but ....maybe about 6" too short.

            I've never seen a G.T.Hawk with -53/54 tail-lights before, but I think it actually fits the overall squareness better than the original ones!
