  • Replacement Interior Doors Panels for a 61 Hawk ?

    Greetings,
    New guy here - Bob from Iowa.
    Looked for a introduction area but didn't see one.
    Sorry if I missed it somewhere.
    New to the website and appreciate the various forums for Tech and stories etc.

    Just purchased a 61 Hawk in California and shipped to Iowa 2 weeks ago.

    Was wondering if any one knows of a company that sells replacement interior doors panels ?
    The California sun really dried mine out and split them pretty good.
    I have hit many of the web sites for replacement panels etc. but have not seen any for a 61 Hawk.
    I would even settle for good used ones that could be dyed if need be.

    Any help appreciated and thanks for this website.

    Thanks,
    HawkGuy Bob

    I think Phantom Autoworks makes them, about $900 a set as I recall.

      Upholstery shops can make new ones alot cheaper. I would check locally.

        Hi Bob, you can have boards made from a interior guy just take him your old boards(templates) and he can make new ones. You will need to decide on material. I just finished a 61, you made a great choice.

          Jim Lawrence, New Martinsville WV. He will make you panels. Reasonable pricing. Nice work. Great guy to deal with. His work can be seen at most meets east of the Mississippi. Sorry I don't have contact info but some here may. I can get it though. jimmijim

            Thank you all for the suggestions.
            I will contact those suggested as well as checking local upholstery shops as well.

            I see the Studebaker Convention is in Cedar Rapids in June.
            I won't be able to attend as I have to go with my son to College fr Freshman orientation in Minnesota that weekend. Son's are more important.
            Hope you all have a great weekend for those going.

                Dittos on Jim Lawrence, He just finished the interior on my 63 Avanti. All I need to do now is repaint it! It was last painted in March 1981, by me! This time, instead of going back white, she will be going back black, just as she came from South Bend!
