The Hawk - Specially designed automobile for the miniseries WHEELS, a five part, 10-hour series based on Arthur Hailey's best selling novel. The program told the story of the National Motors Corporation (NMC), a fictional Detroit manufacturer whose Vice President Adam Trenton (Rock Hudson) put his career on the line proposing a new youth-oriented car design called The Hawk. The story is loosely based on Lee Iacocca's struggle to develop The Mustang for Ford Motors.
To create the car for the series, former Detroit auto designer, Curt Brubaker bought a 1968 AMC Javelin for $700. Cutting off the doors, he chopped about 2 and 1/2 feet off the rear deck and then covered it with urethane foam to contour Hawk's new look which included gull-wing doors. To create the illusion that there were two of these cars, the original red car was painted white.
