They left out the part where the guy who found it in a barn came to this very Forum asking a bunch of questions about these cars. He was very jazzed and couldn't wait to get it on the road. Several of us did a bunch of research, found him some parts and then he turned around and flipped it!!! :ohmy::yeahright: :(
Oh well...
:cheers:

Remember seeing this beauty over on the Packard Forum.
My arms aren't long enough to dig that deep.

Very nice example which appears to have had a really nice correct restoration.
Good luck to the new owner.

Interesting that the car is in Pennsylvania but the pictures were taken in Southern California.

It is a very nice, not "mint", 1958 Packard Hardtop.
I doubt that he will find anyone to pay his price, but you never know, it only takes one.

Nice car for sure, but the $49K asking price would go a long way toward a Packard Hawk or a prewar classic!

That is because the current "flipper' used the (#2) previous owner's Pics from the restorer's ebay Ad from Calif. where it is licensed in the Photos.
This owner should be #3 including the "Garage find" first seller who owned it when the "before" Pic in Post #2 was taken.

It must be really frustrating when you spent $25-30,000.00 to nicely restore a Stude. or Stude. Packard and lose 5 or 10,000 when you have to sell it, often for previously unseen reasons, only to watch the latest "Flipper" reap a Profit of 10-15,000.00! :mad:

BUT, of course that is usually only going to happen GETTING these outlandish asking prices at Barrett Jackson or Mecum.
