  • Car Spotting: 1962 GT Hawk?

    OK, fellow eagle-eyes: This photograph is on today's Hemmings Daily Blog for discussion. Nobody can seem to determine the identity of the black car visible to the right of center, obscured by the blue and white Oldsmobile and pinkish Dodge. Might it be a 1962 Gran Turismo Hawk? If so, it would be an early one, and black was popular among the early '62s since it was the brochure and promotional color.

    But I'm not so sure that's what it is, so I'm not about to post an answer on the Hemmings blog if everyone here doesn't concur.

    If it isn't a 1962 Gran Turismo Hawk in black, what the heck is it? BP

    Bob,
    That B pillar has the wrong angles for a GT Hawk.

      Not a 62 Hawk. The C pillar is too narrow. IMHO.

        I don't think it's a GT Hawk either. But I can't tell what it is.

          I've enlarged the picture, and looked at it every way I could think of, and I don't think it is a GT Hawk either.

            Definitely not a GT Hawk. Maybe an early Chevy II?

              Is it a two door or four door?

                As I said, I wasn't all that convinced it was a GT Hawk or I would have posted that to the blog.

                But the question remains, then; what the heck is it? I honestly don't know. There have been some stabs taken, but nothing definitive.

                Curious, indeed. BP

                  Here's a wild guess. '62 Galaxie?

                    I suppose anything is possible at this juncture, Mike. I honestly don't know what it is, so am not in a position to announce a "winner!" BP

                      I concur it is not a Hawk. I do find it interesting there are 2 Volkswagens in the picture, however.

                          #9 sure looks possible to me.

                            It's not a GT Hawk and I don't think it looks like a 56 or 57 Continental, how about a Mercedes. Bud

                              I immediately thought continental too.
