  • 1958 Packard Sedan

    I found this one today. Looks like a nice restoration. Outside of the tailpipes and driver's mirror, it looks pretty original.

    THAT'S SHARP!!![]

    Miscreant adrift in
    the BerStuda Triangle


    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        Kind of pricey for a 4 Dr. but if it's as good as it looks worth every dollar.Would be nice if more details were provided;milage,history etc.
        Tom karkiewicz has one in storage also black 4dr.Very solid but needs chrome & TLC.I was told he wants $2500. for it

                Tom has had that one for a long time. Good to hear that it is still in good hands.
                I hope to fix my brake booster on my 58 sedan and drive it to South Bend this summer
                for the Nationals. It is about in the same shape except it is shadowtone red.
                Are any of you any 58 Packard wagon owners? Would love to hear about them too being
                that so few were made.

                        Nice looking car and beautiful interior. That said, it's still a little high for that car. But then again, I've been wrong before.

                            If it was done 'right' it might be worth this price.
                            Besides what's already been mentioned, those door panels have the wrong material. They ought to match the seats. I wonder what the headliner looks like?
                            As I can't see much else (under the hood would be nice to see) it would make me wonder what else isn't 'right' and would have to be redone...

                            I forgot to mention, if "Tom's" is as described it could be worth it-mostly complete Packards like these are hard to find!!!
