  • GVWR 57 Golden Hawk

    Hi all from the newbie,

    I have been blessed and will soon aquire a 1957 Golden Hawk and I need to tow the car from North to South. Can anyone tell me what the GVWR is for a 1957 Golden Hawk?

        The base weight on a 1957 Golden Hawk is 3185 pounds. Of course, all options will add to that base weight. The wheelbase is 120.5 inches.
        I hope that you are talking about trailering the Hawk and not flat towing it. I have towed these Hawks with a tow bar. It can be done, but is not a pleasant experience.

        I owned a 1957 Golden Hawk with engine number PS3000. It was/is overdrive, power windows, power seat.
