"This is a 1958 Studebaker President with a factory installed Packard v8 motor."
Looks kinda Stude-ish to me. The 352 we have at the shop looks nuthin' like that...

Factory installed Packard Motor.[:o)] Even that number "1417" - doesn't make any sense. Leastwise, not without an "L" in front of it. OF COURSE, since the "factory" 1958 Packard Motor was EXACTLY the same as the Factory Studebaker President Motor for 1958, I guess you COULD strecth the truth a smidge.[}:)]

Wonder why the air cleaner is on backwards?[8]

Miscreant at large.

:) StudeBob: Check out the under-hood photo a little closer. The number 1417 is the sequential BODY number up on the cowl, not the MOTOR number the seller references. That's why Motor #1417 doesn't make any sense - it's not even a motor number. [xx(]

Groan...:(.

Chances are pretty good this fellow could have used some assistance preparing his e-bay copy. ;) BP

Well I looked. Anyone who pays three grand for that puppy and plans on restoring it better be prepared to keep it for ever,or take a bath. Should be saved, but I think its a hard sell at 3k.

Hi Guys
Thought you would enjoy that listing, especially agree that the fellow needs help with the pics and engine specs.

He did manage to get the "sexy model" as a New York view of the car.

New York View: Sexy model posed in from of the car.
Detroit View: Sexy model posed behind or inside of car.

I agree Studefreak, that car is WAY prettier than the model. Mabey he put her there to make the car look better by comparison.

You guys are knocking someones muched loved wife,mother or family member & think you should all stop now B-4 it gets out of hand. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder "
Any 58 in that condition should be saved,but it would have 2-B not for profit.

You know, when you really look close at the pictures, this car dosen't look to be in too bad of shape, but then again who can tell from pictures, the ad dosen't say anything about rust as far as I can see, and it looks as though the floor is in tact. If someone was a paint and body man and could pretty much install most of their own premade interior and they bought the car for 3,000.00, I am just guessing, but I think you could have an afully nice driver for under 6500.00

It does look to be a nice 'restorable' car, but not for that price!!!
