    My resource for this was the 1958 Packard Dealers' Data Book. I guess that S-P changed their mind after this was published.

      I think you know that S-P 'changed their mind' often during a certain model year. Some examples are 1960 Larks with 289's, non-convertible 1961 Larks painted Flamingo, 1965 Cruisers with vinyl tops, and 1966 230 Super-Skybolts with 3-speed standard;either OD or non-OD. Usually, they are backed up with Sales Letters.

        Yes, I not only realize this, but I have also known people that owned some of your examples.

          Quick update; car sold today for $102,000
          Money may not buy happiness, but it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.

              They'd have to also make up a good story.

              And add raised white letter tires...

                Whatever you think of the car, it's nice to see a 58 S-P Hawk oddball bring the same kind of money as a '58 Big 3 convertible/coupe/handbuilt rig would bring!

                  Could this be a scam? 1 bid for 19,000? It sold 2 years ago for 109,000. Buyer beware
