The interior o\in this car is just great in spite of the goofy add on headrests. ghttp://cgi.ebay.com/Packard-STARLITE-1958-PACKARD-HARDTOP-COUPE-V8-TWIN-TRACTION-VERY-RARE_W0QQitemZ120391704326QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUS_Cars_Trucks?hash=item12039170432 6&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1171%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1 %7C294%3A50

[:0] YIKES!!! About all I can say is- "What an interesting car." ;)

I sorta like what was done to the dash. Honest.

I'll leave it at that... :( [V]

If anyone buys the car, I would be happy to pick it up for them and I could drive it around for a few weeks or months until they decide to come get it. He He He.

That interior is very nice, can't say that about the outside however.
In my opinion it was a mistake to paint a Green or White car BLACK & White and not replace the gold foil but paint it White, it just looks wrong.

It appears to have a '61 or '62 engine and Transmission with the underhood filler tube.

I am ok with everything except the red rims and headrests. It would be a good car to start with. One wouldn't have to put a ton of money into it.

It wouldn't be that big of a deal to replace the gold mylar, would it? The stuff is repopped, right? I can't imagine why they didn't go ahead and do this unless they didn't bother removing the stainless moulding on a "quickie" paintjob. And the red wheels are hideous.
I wonder if the original dash is under some peel n stick woodgrain?

Anyway, for $8000 it would be a nice little project, but$13K+ seems like way too much to me . . .

In most photographs it looks white. Only good close ups (in the right light) show Cleo does have her mylar. Might be the same deal on this car. If not, at least they didn't paint the area that horrible gold color I've seen on more then one '58 Packard... [:0] [B)] :( [V] [xx(]

1958 Packard sedans, wagons and hardtops did not have Mylar. They had anodized aluminum panels. Only the Packard Hawk used Mylar on the fins. The gold color of both does fade away.

Next time I'll just call it "that fadded gold crap on the side of my car".
Would that work for you [?] [?] [?]

It will for me.
