I think this one was offered for sale on EBay earlier this year by a Tx seller. It is resale red and not the original color. But it does look pretty.

It is also too bad that they used vinyl instead of leather for the interior.His pictures are poor quality but the seats don't look too good.

This is an understatement: Due to unavailability of funds, the car uses many components of the Studebaker Golden Hawk, including the power train, the frame and the suspension.

But I like this one:The Packard Hawk was the fastest production Packard ever built.

Yeah, this is the one with the "meticulous" restoration. I didn't know sags and ripples in the upholstery came under the heading meticulous.

It probably will get to 20 grand, but I can still have fun picking on it, since I don't have anywhere near the money to buy it!

Here is a drop dead beautiful Packard Hawk that was on eBay a few months ago. It also had the correct interior. Does anyone remember what it went for?

I wonder what message the cheap jumper cables sitting in the trunk sends to a prospective buyer. The ad mentions that he is a mechanical engineer, I was hoping for something more racy out of the e-bay ID of "couplingexpert". [}:)]

When you put an item on eBay, you are fair game. I know because I listed a bumper guard wrong one time and I definitely heard from a lot of people. I just said that I had studied studebakers all my life but I missed the classes on bumper guards!

I missed seeing those jumper cables because I was trying to figure out this air conditioning system
