  • Another '58 Packard Wagon

    Today I attended our regularly scheduled March meeting (Central Virginia Chapter) in Chesterfield County, VA. We met at a non-member's home which is a veritable museum unlike anything I've ever experienced, but that's another story.

    While exploring a garage behind his home, lo and behold, there hunkered down was a white over green 1958 Packard Station Wagon. With musclepower supplied by our own Leonard Shephard, we found serial number 58L-7742, body tag 58L-P8, 110. When quizzed, the owner told me where he had purchased the wagon and, suddenly, 47 years of fog faded from my brain. This was the same wagon I now remembered that resided in Waynesboro, VA with a deceased friend, Jeff Diffee, who played a big part in my introduction to antique cars. Don't know why I had forgotten it...but, its great to know it still exists. This vehicle was last licensed in VA in 1968. It is complete and needs a complete restoration, but has always been kept under cover.

        Not many people can say that they have an actual Richard Petty race car in their house (much less three). In addition, loads of pocket watches, musical instruments as well as indian artifacts.

            Here is Guido next to Richard Petty!



            Not only does Hugh have Petty cars and a 58 Packard wagon, but he has two Kaiser Darrins!

                    Ok, I gotta know who owns that beautiful '63 GT Hawk with Avanti power?
                    Does anyone in that Chapter know anything about it?

                    In 1970-71 I owned a R1 Power Shift, late '63 with the recessed parking lights and the full Walnut dash panels, it had Power Disc Brakes and rear deck mounted Antenna and was re-painted that same 1964 Laguna Blue (silver/Blue) over the Blue Mist, the darker non-silver '63 color.

                    Of course it was in Calif. but these cars do get around, and I would like to locate it again if it "lives"! It was a very sharp car, it had Good Year "Blue Streak" Tires back then. [^]

                    This car does appear to have a fender mount antenna, and most likely is not it.

                            Yes, It is a Superbird.



                            The blue 63 GT Hawk belongs to Jim and Debbie Jett.
                            Rich, I will PM you his email address so you can ask him about it. These picture was taken at our meet last March. (Jim is looking at the Superbird in the top picture that Guido posted.)
