Man oh man, Leonard, where do you come up with this stuff??

Is that truck really a Stude? Looks like dual headlight fenders, and that steering wheel looks like 51-52 Cadillac...

Thanks for posting those- I love junkyards[8D]

Anyone live near this junk yard? Besides the Studebaker coupes there is a Packard Hawk and a Studebaker truck that is steam powered.

BAMS,

It is a 1949 - 1953 Studebaker 2R5 1/2 ton pickup truck. I have sold a couple of Studebaker trucks to a local excavating contractor that is into steam ( he has a 1907 Case steam engine and a steam powered boat) and he would probably jump on this.

Are those the right fenders for it? They look like a 58 Chevy Apache I owned...

The fenders on the truck do look like 58-59 Chevy but the steering wheel is 1950-51 Studebaker

Bob,

I think the fenders are correct, but the headlight pods have been grafted to the front. However, the right side of the hood does not seem to line up with the fender so who knows....

There were so few Packard Hawks and so many of them show up in junkyards, I think they are really '57 Chevys someone has altered to look like the P/H.[:0]

Its a shame to see any old car just sit & rust away..Its especially sad to see such a rare car as a Packard Hawk stiing there..If anyone goes there, get the vin off the door plate & let Mike know at www.packardhawk.com , so he can add it to his list..

Hmm, there are 4 or 5 Packard Hawks within 35 miles of where I live, maybe even 6 or 7 (not in junk yards). I can't remember the exact count. I think they like Minnesota.

I assume, since it hasn't been asked , the Hawk is not for sale?????

My guess is that since it is still sitting there, the owner wants more that anyone is willing to pay for it.

If anyone does get back to this car, see if you can get any of the numbers off it. Body, Serial or engine, and forward them to me.
Also I know of several Packard Hawks that are for sale if anyone is interested check www.packardhawk.com or email me. There may be several in junk yards, but I have about 240 listed as surviving cars and more appear all the time. Not bad for only 588 produced.

The thing about Packard Hawks it seems is that you either love em or hate em! I had 2 at one time. one I found in a barn ,and the other was a 50,000 mile original. What a blast to drive! I have many fond memories. Sad to say it was sold for the down payment on my house. Some day I hope to relive that feeling in my R-2 Lark

I have many fond memories. Sad to say it was sold for the down payment on my house. Some day I hope to relive that feeling in my R-2 LarkI love 'em - always have. I waited nearly 53 years to get my P.H. I'll be living under an underpass in a tent before I ever sell it.

I've said many times that if I had unlimited money and resources I'd buy every P.H. on the planet, restore every one of them and drive a different one every day for the rest of my life until I died. Since I'll never have unlimited money and resources, it looks like that plan will flop; so, I think it would be cool to find these and connect them to folks that have an interest in P.H.s so that they can be salvaged before yard owners toss them because they figure they'll never get a call for parts off them. Alternatively, if nobody were interested in purchasing a yard derelict and restoring it, it might be possible to find an automotive trade high school that wants a unique project car. The students could hold a raffle to raise money to purchase it, or maybe the yard owner could be prevailed upon to donate it as a tax write-off. Then the students could bring it back to streetable condition and sell it at a profit to raise money to buy new tools or equipment for the school's shop and another one would be saved from the crusher.

I think the car's uniqueness is what's enabled so many to survive for so long and I think it's that desire to preserve something unique that trade school instructors would find attractive about such a project. I know that my instructor back in the '60's was thrilled to death to be able to have one of those first 300 Corvettes for his students to restore. He hovered over that project like a mother hen and when it was done you could tell it broke his heart to see it returned to its owner. I think there are other instructors out there like that.
