    The rarest would be the 1958 Packard Wagon.

    Most desirable would be a personal preference call. I would vote for the '57 Packard Clipper Town Sedan, but most people might prefer the '58 Packard Hardtop![^]

        IF you're talking about Packards made after the merger (takeover), then that should allow models as far back as at least 1955 doesn't it? In that case I would definitely prefer the older Packards like a 1956 Packard Executive hardtop.

            The '57 Packard Clipper Town Sedan gets my vote. It had the appearance of a being a Packard.

                    I'd like a '57 Packard Country Sedan (station wagon). Blower and 3-speed and overdrive, and roof rack...either in that lavender color and white, or gold and white. A pretty, practical Packardbaker!

                        I'm sorry, and I know this isn't necessarily the most popular thought, but to me, Packard died at the end of 1956. If I could have my choice of Packard after the merger, I'd take either a '55-'56 Caribbean or 400 hardtop. Again, this is just my own opinion and nothing personal is meant against anyone who likes the '57-'58 models. If I ever bought one of these later cars, it would be to hot rod it. I'll duck for cover now.

                            I think if it says Studebaker-Packard on the Company name then It's a free for all and my pick is the 1955 Packard Caribbean Convertible or the 1956 Packard Executive, I would pick the Hawk but you said I can't have that one. [:P]
