  • Cool/Heat: Hawk heater core

    Does anyone sell new heater cores for a '60 Hawk? Or, does anyone know of a modern day core that can be jerry-rigged and made to work?

    SI lists a rebuilt exchange core for your car. I do not know of a NOS one, but one probably exists somewhere in someone's stock. Good luck. I didn't realize how much they were bringing when I threw one in with one of the last Studebakers that I sold.

      Long established radiator shops can still recore them.

        A good recore is a much better choice then and new aluminum knock-off. Your last one lasted sixty years, you could expect the same longevity for a quality recore. There are good used heaters out there, inspected and pressure tested most of these can outlive a new aluminum unit, the life expectancy of which is less then ten years.
