    Hello Mark,
    Yes have the fins & correct tail lights, the P.O. had removed them & put '62 tail lights on, but I have now sourced all the correct parts to turn back into to a '61Click image for larger version

      Starting to make headway on the Hawk,
      about half way working through the panels,
      had the body sandblasted last week , & sprayed a coat of 2K Epoxy on it
      on the weekend, plenty to do still, but all is coming along fine.
      Motor & trans have been re-built,

        Looks like a nice solid car, assuming you haven't been replacing sheet metal for the last 6 months and not telling us. My dream is to one day restore a car that is not eat up with rust.

          Hello Wayne,
          It is pretty solid for the age, main rust area in the rear of the trunk, I'm waiting on the rear weather strip & trunk channel from Classic,
          the fenders were all really good, trunk lid had rust around bottom rim, I've replaced that with classics panel,

          regards, Cus

              Beautiful Engine. I am surprised that it has a '58 to '60 Flight-O-Matic with the under the floor Filler/Dipstick in a '61.

                The '61's have the floor fill/inspection port.

                  I wondered about that. The 61 Lark that I have here for a project, has the dipstick in the engine bay.

                    Yes, from all the photo's I've seen, can't see any transmission dipsticks on a '61 Hawk, only Larks,
                    minor detail anyway, someone might have cut a hole to put an earlier transmission in , lots of things can happen over 58 years,
                    my one looks all factory to me,

                      Someone once said that the English and the Americans are two peoples separated by a common language. I have a 61 that I've owned since 1970. If you have any questions about if I could try to answer them.

                            Making some headway,
                            Ordered some replacement panels for the trunk, all welded in.

                                Beautiful job on the Floors, it looks like you may have to cut the Right Side Climatizer Heater Core hole in the floor, unless you ordered a Custom, Aftermarket "Vintage Air" Heating and A/C System.
