    The engine number is on a machined pad on the upper l/f (drivers side) of the engine behind the water manifold.

      Here is the build sheet
      Thanks for posting this.

      Do you have the "sheets 1-13" that are referenced on the production order? They seem to have something to do with the "custom" paint job. I noticed that it calls for "Avanti Maroon enamel". Avantis were painted in lacquer, so this is special enamel paint made in the Avanti Maroon color.

      That is a very well equipped Hawk.

        Gary,
        I don't have sheets 1-13. Would the museum have them?

        Here is the engine number below.

        I have 34 pages of long hand written notes during the restoration........which led to the cost of the restoration. The engine was pulled and rebuilt. I know this was the original engine.

        Bob Palma's answer in the current Turning Wheels says that a production number of 36 means it is a Super Hawk with a R1 engine. Does anyone know what the items under #36 are compared to the list on my build sheet?

        I feel like I am turning into a History Detective.

          re: "sheets 1-13" - I assume that the SNM may have them. I suggest calling them and talking with someone that would know, like Andy. If they do have them, it seems to me that they should have provided them with the production order (to make it complete).

          You engine shows number JTM325, which is what is on the production order, confirming original (R1) engine block still in the car

            I believe it is a single generic 'sheet' or chart showing a diagram of a side profile and maybe a top profile of a car, with dark lines dividing the various panels into 13 numbered 'sections'.

            I wonder if because its enamel versus lacquer is why the 'P6401 Special' designation was used instead of P6436.

                That's a very nice hawk! Would look great with wire wheels.

                  Well...in the spirit of my comment in the thread titled "Best color for a (GT) Hawk"...This Hawk sure makes the color Maroon look great!
