Hi Guys and Gals.
I'm brand new to your club. I have a body shop in Northeast Iowa. I am currently working on an 1975 Packard Clipper.
I am looking for a hood for one for my customer. I am hoping your club can help us out.
Thank you for your time

Welcome to the forum. Just to be clear, you have a 1957 Packard clipper sedan, yes?

Hello and welcome to the club and forum.
As I am a owner of a 1957 Packard Clipper as well.
I've had some success searching for parts over to the Packard forum.
Through them I was able to locate a Hood and left front fender through a connection I received there.
And you can place a want ad on the Studebaker Swap Page.
I was also told during my search that a Hood from a 1957 Studebaker President would fit with altering the holes from Studebaker to Packard?

In MN. Last time I checked, I had a nice black one on an upper shelf. I will need to check and advise.

Do you need any other parts?

It ought to fit, but keep in mind--- SP beefed up the Packard hoods in that area for some reason or another... :ohmy: :whome:

That would explain why my original Hood rusted all along that inner tubing structure. East coast car.
The replacement hood I found was from a car from the California 🌵 desert.

You might try Roscoe Stelford in Hampshire Illinois. He ended up with a "lot" of Packard Pparts.

I am interested to know what you might have 58Packardwagon.
as of right now I don't know of any other parts needed. As per customer request I will get it running again. Has been in storage for about 25 years. I had the supercharger rebuilt and ready to go in. Just need to get back to it and finish ignition tune up.

Been in SDC since the 70's and I do not recall ever seeing a 57 Clipper for sale. I can only assume that they are such nice cars that no one who owns one would willingly want to part with it. We have a 58 which we really like; it is so ugly that it is cute. It is a wonderful driving car; it rides sooo nice and handles well too. Why do modern cars have to ride like a buckboard???

Just wondering if this car is green and has AC. If so it might be my uncles old car- the geography and timing fit

I think the 57 Packards look great and even better then the 57 Presidents .. But I have to agree with you on the 58's ... They are so ugly, but I just have to look lol . The 58 Packard line looked better then the Studebaker line except for the Hawk of course .
