    What do you think, can this 60 Hawk can be saved with a little body filler and paint.













    I guess this is what happens when you leave these things out in the rain a little too long.

    Aw, just a little Lark Shine™ will fix that right up! YOu might tear up a few buffer pads in the process, though

      Unless you do the work yourself, you will have a LOT more in it, then buying a car from the west coast or the desert. A $1500 shipping charge vs $45.00 per labor hour, doesn't take long to eat that up.

        Good morning Jim. This is a West Coast car. They do rust just like on the East Coast.

          What is that heater under drivers seat? I got a 1962 Hawk from Calif. with the same one.

            Just start rebuilding from around the underseat heater and work your way out. No big deal.

              All Hawks had the heater under the seat. Only the defroster is on the firewall.

                Look closer, Terry,....the heater WITH the fan, is actually on the Drivers side. The picture after is on the passengers side.

                  Well...if you save the air around the rust...brace every thing precicely...take careful measurements...you can cut, weld, hammer, and bolt fresh new metal in its place. Your only limitation is talent, time, patience...and, of course...money! For this particular example...I'm afraid I am lacking a sufficient quantity of those assets.

                      That is the optional auxiliary heater on the driver's side.

                        With enough MONEY - anything man made can be "rebuilt".

                          It's amazing that it's still standing. Looks like it's been sitting in salt water with all that rust.

                            I've got "California Cars" that are virtually rust free. Then there's examples like this Hawk that set too close to the coast and responded to the salt sea air. Most California cars ARE NOT like this. In spite of what some "experts" might proclaim. <Edit to add that last comment>

                              $45 an hour is cheap. Our shop in MN is at $52 and there are those here charging $55.
