  • 1961 silver hawk listed on e-bay

    Does anyone know anything about this car? It' been on the e-bay site for a few days. No bids so far. Nice looking black/red interior. Located in Coral Springs, Fla. Minimum opening bid amount a little under $10m. Doesn't sound all that unreasonable from the car's appearance in the photos. Your thoughts?????

    There were no 'Silver' or 'Golden' Hawk's in 1961.
    All Hawks then were just called Hawk's.
    If you are talking about Ebay item# 260172731245, then ask about the car carefully. Cape Coral is on the gulf coast. This car could have come from anywhere and could have rust issues. I'd always look triple close when the seller says 'added undercoating' to preserve the undercarraige. They are also clear to say 'unrestored', and 'original'... and is being offered by a used car auction company..
    Not poo-pooing the car by any means, but I'd want to see this one up close and in person before spending my money...
    (I'd also get the VIN and check to see if it really is a factory 4-speed car)
    Just an opinion from a rusty '61 Hawk owner...

        I didn't look the car up and you didn't provide a link, but you probably mean $10K, not "$10m", and if it is a 1961, it is a Hawk, not a "silver hawk."

            We've discussed this car the last time it was up, maybe on the news group. It has MAJOR frame ruse issues that the large amount of undercoating could not cover. The good news is, it did not make reserve at 22K last trip, so no one was disappointed.

                Thanks for the replies. Pretty much my feelings, too. Did not know about previous offering at $22m (yes I do mean $22m...'M' in Roman numerals stands for thousand..In my line of work-finance-we've always used the 'M' to represent thousand and 'MM' for million and continue to do so even though frequently these days others use the 'k' interchangably. I accept both abreviations). Now, back to the Hawk: Following the discontiuance of the gold/silver designation, someone refresh my memory. Was there ever a year prior to GT production that all Hawks were post coupes and not hardtops? Thanks again.

                    Sure, the 59 Silver Hawk and the 60 and 61 Hawks were coupes and alone in the line.
