This is an extremely tough to find, rare part. This should be very interesting to follow!

I like old 57 Packards. I like them a lot, but 58's even more. Not to be cynical(noooooo...), but prolly, in line with the current trend, someone will buy it, and display it as a decoration along with their other car memorablia in a home walkout basement garage mini-museum. Maybe not. But, lets just see what happens. I predict a selling price of $572.50.

I would buy it at that price! Joe, are you listening? :D Seriously, I hope I get it for my '57 wagon, but it better not end up on a shelf somewhere! It has to be on a wagon, even if it isn't on mine.

Didn't the last one go for around $600 or so ?

This is the third one in the past 6 months. I am wondering if itis one guy who has all of the remainng stock and is slowly selling them.

Problem with them is that UV light kills them. The colors fade fast, especially the red.

They only carry the '58 emblem, not the '57. They will make one for you IF you want to wait two years for it.

Chip I too hope you end up with it or someone else who is going to put it on a car. My desire is to have it shown proudly on a car. That is an area though that I have no control over. This is the only 57 that I have and the only nos one that I have seen or found. I have a few 58 emblems, but they are for my cars. I currently have two 58 Packard wagons and hopefully by year end I will have two more. I am currently working on two deals which involve me trading some parts and cars. The 57 Packard wagon that I have will be involved in one of my trades, so the emblem that I had reserved for it, I am selling on ebay.

The last 58 emblem that I sold was last December and it went for $1105.00 on ebay. It went on a car that received a full ground up restoration and it looks absolutely perfect.

What I've done with some horn buttons in my collection - buttons that had some surface scratches or blushes - is to polish them with extra fine steel wool and then spray them with a coat of Krylon acrylic artist's clear. I spray quick and JUST enough to give it a wet look. Don't want drippy wet.:( It'll show an "orange peel" look while it's wet, but it dries smooth.
Done right, you can not tell that it's been "painted" AND the stuff has a UV-blocker that would help to prevent fading. I've even coated NOS examples, just as a fade preventive. Some hardware stores carry this product, but good art supply stores will for sure. Can make shelf-worn plastic lenses look fresh again too.;)

Prolly everyone has seen the show on PBS called "Antiques Roadshow", where typically, some Lady will bring up some trinket she bought at a yard sale or found in her late Aunt Wilma's attic, and the expert will stun everyone by appraising the artifact at some insane amount. A bud vase for $10,000 or something like that. Anyway, the show is therapeutic---Now, I don't feel so bad paying a few bucks for a nice NOS Studebaker part....

The ARS is a curse word here, it cost us thousands of dollars to moe my mother in here with her "priceless antiques" all based on the ARS. She was so sure that she had a fortune that we had a woman come up from Southby (spelling) and at $300 an hour go thru these priceless antiques. When all was said an done, we got $7000.00 for all the crap. She tought she had over a half a million in antiques. She still sits in front of the stupid TV every night watching the ARS and saying to us..I have one just like that..........you will be very wealthy when I am gone.

I would give anything for somebody to turn to the expert who just stated that aunt Bertha's vase is worth $18,000 and say ... good buy it from me NOW.

Don't use the ARS as an excuse to buy something, enjoy it, and don't rationalize. Once your gone your family will wind up with 20 cents on the dollar, and you had fun.

Or, is it just a sign of the times???

There are a number of watchers......over 40. Chip snipers are those that use a website where you enter your highest bid and when you want the program to automatically start bidding for you. A lot of people believe that this is the way to keep the price down or if they are away from their computer or out for the day, they will not miss putting their bid in. Typically the bidding goes frantic the last two minutes of the the auction. I think the auction site is sniper.com or snipper.com.......something like that.

I was sitting here refreshing in anticipation of a huge leap at the end- talk about anti-climactic[|)]

Wonder where the buyers were- nervous about a new administration and if their Packard might be re-distributed?:(

It's a legit question. I saw one sell not long ago for $1105. Why not this one?

The one that sold for $1105.00 was a 58. I had two individuals who both did ground up restorations on their 58 Packard Wagons and that part was the final piece of the puzzle that they needed. So the bidding got pretty hot.

You should use esnipe.com. It will bid at the last few seconds for you.

Chip,

I use E-snipe exclusively. I NEVER sit and watch an item play out - waste of time unless it's something I'm just fascinated to see what the final bid will be. Even in that sort of case (which hasn't happened in a long time), if I were interested in bidding on it, I'd have the E-snipe bid set to strike![}:)]

I also use E-snipe, but, there is one issue. You have to input the highest amount of money that you are willing to pay.

For example, say there are 5 guys using E-snipe, if you want a speedometer, you might need to input $835.76. Now if everyone is trying to snipe at or near the true value, you will wind up paying say, $290.00, but if another guy on E-snipe entered $550.00 you will win at $551.00 way over value. That is the gamble you take with E-snipe.

If you change your eBay password then you also have to make sure that esnipe has the correct eBay password.

It happened to me. I changed my eBay password and forgot to change it on esnipe, and esnipe couldn't bid.

Leonard, I boo-booed like that myself once!

Bill, that's not a problem really. You put in what it's worth to you and forget it. If you can't decide what it's worth to you, then you need to sit in front of your monitor during the final seconds and hope you have a fast connection if you're compelled to throw in one last try![:p]

Off topic a little. But I would like to add if YOU CHANGE E-MAIL ADDRESS , when you do the change with E-bay make sure to change the paypal e-mail inside of E-bay for payments you will recieve from paypal through e-bay. I just lost out on $385.00 on a sale because I changed e-mail address with Pay pal and e-bay but did not change the one e-bay had set up for payment through paypal. Here's how I got screwed. Sold some football tickets, Buyer sent money (same day) via Paypal. It appeared as he paid paypal. I sent the tickets. went to get my money from Paypal and they said they placed the money in my old e-mail account. This account is incative and cannot be accessed. Paypal said they did nothing wrong as the money was there, I would have to re-activate the old address. This was not possable. Paypal said contact the buyer and have him cancell the transaction and resend to new address. When the buyer heard the money was not transferred he went back and cancelled the transaction and then said he was not happy with the tickets (which he had used) and goodby. Both E-bay and paypal said it was my fault for not changing my address inside e-bay. What a lesson.
