    Sonny, if you get a chance get the number off the Packard Hawk engine. I can (1. tell you for sure if it was out of a Packard Hawk and (2. Assuming it is out of a Packard Hawk I can note that car as no longer existing.
    Packard Engines have a letter L to start the engine number, If they are from a Supercharged car then it will be an LS *****
    Thanks,

    Mike

        quote:I'll get the serial numbers today Mike. I'm sure that both begin with "LS".

        OK Mike, here they are.... The '57 has LS1584. I know the '57 came out of a Clipper. The engine that's supposed to be a '58 has LS3278.

            You are saying you have the FIRST , as in 'number one' supercharged engine block for 1958. ?
            Are the engine serial numbers just three digits? I think they're all 4 digits Gord. But then, think about how much I know about Packards! [8][]

                    Since the talk is on engines I will mention my experience yesterday at the annual Naples-Marco Island AACA Depot Car Show. Our '63 Avanti is a magnet for Studebaker enthusiasts. A fellow stopped by and said he had previously owned R194 which he said was one of nine R3's built. He said it was sold a few years ago. Also, present was a beautiful '57 Golden Hawk. a '47 Champion convertible, and a '62? Daytona convertible which was immaculate. I am glad that the number of Studebakers appearing in local shows is rising. Two fellow club members are looking for their Studebakers!

                        Sonny,
                        The Packard Hawk engines began with LS5201 and ended with LS5787 Any other LS engine is likely from a 1957 model Packard since the LS designation was for Super Charged cars and the only Packard to be Super Charged for 1958 was the Packard Hawk. Of the 588 Packard Hawks produced there are two for whom I don't have engine numbers.

                        LS101 is the first 57 Packard engine.

                            I should have known Mike, but I'm really not too upset. Any original '57-'58 supercharged 289 is OK by me. I DID have to go to Canada to get it, and you know how those Canadians have been known to stretch the truth! [)]

                            The "story" was... A fella was hit by a train, killed in his Packard Hawk. Mom had it brought home and stored in the garage at the house until her death, when the kids sold the thing. Oh! It's supposed to have only "about" 24,000 miles on it too. After I see that it's not a '58 PH motor, I'll just go ahead and order the parts for the overhaul. [B)][]

                            Thanks a million Mike! Glad it wasn't a PH!

                            BTW, If the first Packard motor was 101, there was a HELL of a bunch of Packard motors punched out if the numbers went up to 5787! I'm gonna look a little harder!
