I see why they are rare...LOL!:D They sure don't have the class that '55 Speedsters and '57 Hawks do huh?

You got a Packard parts guy, neighbor up there in Maryland John?

Those are Hawk only. I haven't checked the AC number, but it appears to be about right for '56. '55 was the first year for duals and they were two-inch- tips were the earlier upright heavy chrome models. '56 brought the 1 3/4" tailpipes and duals. Sedan tips in '56 were just small chrome rings that fit over the end of the squared-off tail pipe that came through the bottom of the bumper.

you think those are ugly, you should see the other option for '56.

(just offended someone that thinks they're pretty, I'm sure.)

The repros that SI sells look like them, but are nice and shiny. When I first saw those at a show a few years ago, I wondered why they were so sought after. However the new ones are really sharp looking.
