  • GT Hawk fan shroud interchangeability with other models?

    The fan shroud on my '62 Hawk has been slightly modified with a cutting torch, sometime years ago. Why it was cut I don't know, but would like to find a replacement. Anyone know what other years and models are a direct fit? For example, does a '55 Speedster have the same fan shroud? Anyone near me have a shroud to sell for a GT Hawk?

    Thank you

      Sometimes cowboys used to torch out a piece of the shroud when adding AC or Supercharger to clear the pulley, instead of replacing with the correct shroud. Dan

        Cowboys?? My experience is that most true cowboys are pretty well educated but extremely poor.(Having lived in Wyoming for nearly 10 years some time ago).
        Probably MIDWEST type re-engineered.
        lived there for 10 years too.

          All of the '56 to '64 Hawks have the same height hood and all V-8 shrouds SHOULD be able to do the job.
          There is NO chance of a '53-'55 C or K shroud working at all. No other models after '55 even have a shroud as standard equipment, so that would be it.
