Hi blokes,
the other week when I was in Holland I went to visit a bloke who had two of those really common 1958 Packard Hawks. The survival rate of these cars never ceases to amaze me. They are as common as 1931 Four Season Roadsters.

One was body number 13. Does anyone have the serial number for this car ? I could not get the door open enough to see the serial number.

Was it low enough to be a show car? The car is in really rough shape and needs a squillion dollars spent on it.

The other car was serial number 58LS1277 with Body number 336

He also had a parts car that had been junked in America previously and had the parts from that as well.

Regards
Greg

Can't help on the serial number but that one needs some work to be a Chick Magnet.

Greg, Body # 13 belongs to Serial # 58LS1009, which was the 9th Packard Hawk built. It is an automatic transmission car and originally painted Midnight Black. Both of these cars are known to be in existence. Hope this helps. Dave

All Studebakers, from early on in their production of automobiles, had the serial number stamped on the underside of the rear frame cross member. This would also include '57 - '58 Packards. If.that would be any easier to access?

That technically is correct and may apply in your "neck of the woods", but here in the Northeast, I have only been able to find a couple of these S/Ns out of the hundreds of Studebakers that I have looked at.

That's certainly possible, I have no reason to question it, but if you don't try checking you'll never really know for sure?
