      Photo of the serial number plate, please?

      bezhawk, one look at the trunk lid tells you what you'll find on the floors. There be a welding project in that there Hawk. According to another post, he's sending a Stude Hawk to China that has a set of fins.

      Jeez, I'd love to jump on it but I've got to remain disciplined and finish the one I'm working on before I buy another or the Korean Connection (what I fondly refer to my wife, Kwang Cha) will cut me from stem to stern.

      Please don't part it out. There are too few of those as it is and that one is restorable. There has got to be someone on here with the cajones to take that on as a project.

        The fins did not come with it, and at this time I have n extra ones, the floors and trunk are not bad, the trunk lid is the worst part but still a fixable one., I will PM you the price also to any one else that asks, it is low and want some else to take over and do the job it needs, supercharger is in the trunk along with the power steering bump.

          Mike right now where it sits I can not open the door enough to get a picture but will when I get ready to e-bay or move it on. the trunk lid is the worst part the floors are ok, the 60 hawk that ended up going to China had the fins removed and my body man has them as he does custom work and they come in handy for some of his projects, beside the 59-61's are cut different on the front end but one could always alter that to fit if needed., what went to China was nothing worth saving when I got done removing the good parts, big surprise was the standard bore full flow replacement engine a 289 at that.

            I kinda like the looks of it without the front bumper ends.

              Total restoraton will be mighty expensive. This better be something that's been wanted for a long time. Now that mine's nearly finished even I can't beleive the money it takes to do it right. However, I think if I had it to do over again, I would

                Agree, that one is perfect for a mild custom; can you see it without fins, outer bumpers, painted headlight rims, remove the parking lights maybe even a '53-55 deck lid without the toilet seat. Build the engine/tranny to R2 Powershift specs and we've got ourselves a '64 Packard Hawk.

                  That sounds like a great idea to me. You could save a lot more money by not replacing the leather seats. Just use later Hawk seats or seats from something else.

                    To my surprise the person that owes me money on this car and has been no answering my e-mails and pushed me into posting it for sale has sent me the money he owed me so as of right now the car is not for sale, funny who things work out some times.

                      That would be a nice second Hawk for Brian Greenall, would be good to have another one in Australia.

                      Saw one last year in Fremantle, but Brian said it's not authentic and to wait and see his which I look forward to at the next meet in Pokolbin next Easter.

                        Thanks for the encourgement John but I have my hands full as it is, my shipment from the South Bend meet is due next week and I have a few interesting items in that box as well as two leaving out of L.A already, we don't want to flood the market with PH's now do we. I knew he would come through with the money, like I said in a previous thread.

                          Brian, not saying names but this car will be coming to Australia now but I don't thinks anyone will ever see it again once it gets there, I think he has a big hole and every thing goes in to that hole to never be seen again.

                              Nice to hear from you Brian, was hoping Bob wasn't referring to you. Looking forward to seeing the PH (yours) one day if not next year at the meet. Regards
