  • 63 Hawk door emblem placement

    On the 63 Hawks, does the emblem on the door go in front or rear of the Gran Turismo nameplate? Same on both sides?

      Okay, to be complete, the order of the three colors on the emblem is specific to 1963. From left to right as you face the emblem, on the drivers side, it is red-white-blue, on the passenger side it is blue-white-red. This is for domestic left-hand control cars.

            This issue has come up several times before. It is a bit strange, but technically to make both sides THE SAME, as if you could see them both from above, they would both Match, Red Forward.

            I know it seams Odd since it appears it is to be an "American" Theme Emblem that SHOULD be; Red/White/Blue which is, I believe the reason the Red, White and Blue background Decklid Emblem on '63-'64 Australian Cars was changed to Solid WHITE!

            They went to the extreme I think on the '55 President Speedster making TWO checkered Flag little "C" Pillar Emblems, flipped/reversed of each other for the same reason as the '63-'64 Hawks, so they match as seen from above which of course you cannot do if you wanted to!

              The order of the colors on the right door is different between 1963 and 1964 Hawks (the left side is the same for both years).

                Australian assembled GT Hawks used the same red/white/blue plastic trunk emblem insert. But the door tri-color emblems were positioned differently to the North American built GT Hawks. This could add to the confusion....

                  OK Chris, What Country did use the White Hawk Decklid Emblems then?
                  By 1963 & '64 there could not have been too many Countries assembling these things.

                  We sold the White Emblem we had, because we would never use that on a South Bend USA Car.

                    Image of my trunk emblem which I have kept. My knowledge over the years is that this emblem was fitted or supplied to European CKD GT Hawks or perhaps 6 cyl versions. Hope this helps. As Chris stated, definitley not on Australian assembled GT Hawks of the '63 / '64 model.
