The Nighthawk was a 1977-only model. It was technically a trim package on top of the Skyhawk. The option featured black paint, trim blackout, gold wheels, and one other unique touch. In daylight, there were gold outline type stripes on the side of the car. At night, when light shined upon these, the outlined area changed from black to a shimmering silverish-gold color. The performance was no better than a standard Skyhawk, as it was powered by the same V6.
