  • Interior: headliner bows for 61 hawk

    Hi, anyone know where I can get headliner bows for my 61 Studebaker hawk, when I bought it all interior was gone so not sure what they look like, I could probably make them if I had something to go by, if someone has a new or used set to sell let know thanks, Randy 218-259-2659

    Best bet would be to find a complete set out of a parts car. Should be a few out there.

      I have a 61 hawk parts car. I think the bows are in it. I check this weekend. PM me if interested.

        Be sure to mark them before taking them out, so they can go back in the proper order.

          NOT intending to hijack this thread, I'm wondering if these bows cold be adapted to be used in a 56 Hawk.

            You can buy cardboard replacement and bows for the 56 Hawks, which I’m sure you’ll be aware of already 354 DeSoto

                Weren't all '61 Hawks coupes?
                If so, did they not share the same bows and cloth headliner from all C models from '53 through '61? In which case any of those should work; and the ends are number stamped to assist with installing in proper order.
                I thought only the K bodies had a Masonite headliner.
