        Bet that's kind of a gutless wonder.

            It will drive all the authenticity judges crazy.

                If my recollections are correct, here are some thoughts. There is no hood ornament; I believe we shipped these separately so they didn't break off in transit. The deck lid crest is tri-color; I remember these being all white background on export models. Not sure if the outside mirror is correct. Since it's a six cylinder I think it should have been exported from Canada. Just recollections. Any thoughts from the rest of you?

                  I didn't think there were any 1964 Hawks produced in Hamilton at all. And a rather high number, like 13% of 1964 Hawks were export models. http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...awk-in-Belgium

                    It's bad enough to pay a high price for the car, but the shipping must be very expensive.
                    I do know that 6 cyl. Hawks were earmarked for Europe. I appreciate Stu's assessment of the car.

                      Well, according to the history given by the seller, the car was first delivered to Switzerland as confirmed by the sticker on the rear bumper. I'd be interested in getting a better look at the badges on the trunk lid. Too bad it wasnt equipted with a floorshift four speed. An interested piece of history.

                        I noticed that d'Ieteren assembled GT Hawks featured some different components from their US counterparts. The outside mirror is one of them with the scuff plates, the horns and the wheels. There are certainly other ones that I haven't noticed yet. My 63 has a transparent deck lid crest with a golden Hawk. With the serial number, the car is still traceable at D'Ieteren's.

                          I believe that there were only 224 six cylinder Hawks built.

                          There was a spring loaded (safety) circle S hood ornament. It is my understanding that these were for export models. I am now sold out of them, but others may have them.

                            At least the passenger side door, interior emblem is correct. Interesting seat belt latching mechanism on the rear quarter panel

                              I wonder if they bothered with those on Hawks in the countries where it was required. Unless there was a different part number for the grille surround on cars where a spring-loaded hood ornament was to be fitted, it would take quite a bit of effort to carefully make the required slot on the top of it; considering a 1964 grille surround was a 'reworked' 1963 shell which made the casting thicker in that area.
