    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.
