      This automobile looks like a solid survivor. The future owner could make a large profit by reupholstering the interior in factory materials, but that would just seem like a waste. If I were to miraculously possess this one, I'd be sorely tempted to name her "Pauline the Packard!"

      1962 GT Hawk - "Daisy-Mae" - she came dressed to kill in etherial green with a charming turquoise inside. I'm hopelessly in love!

        I would keep the interior. Have you priced a correct repro leather seating area for a Packard Hawk?

          Complete kit from SE Studebaker $5210.00 cash. This Hawk would be well worth anything you put in to it. It's only money, you can't take it with you!

            Don't be shy. I named my '57 Clipper Wagon "Colette the Clipper" in honor of my painter's wife.

              Pulling this post. After looking at the photos again, I realized it was not the car from SF. My bad.

                I was surprised that that car didn't go for more than that. It is a beautiful automobile.

                  Would make a nice driver as is or spend a lot of hours detailing and doing small touch up and there is some money to be made. The seats just look like they need the covers removed and foam wrapped and a little leather die.

                    A decent original car for a very fair price. The amount needed to bring the car up concourse condition would not be worth the cost. It's a very nice cruise night quality car. IMO the only reason for restoring a car like this would be, if there were major components needed a complete rebuild, and that a low purchase price reflected what was required, or that someone had more money then common sense and he just had to have the best. I know that the first scenario doesn't match the reality, but all bets are off on the second.

                      Did you see the PH sold on ebay last week for $5500. Looked like it they try to pick it up from either end it's going to buckle in the center from so much rust.
