    I always thought there should have been a 59 Packard. I did this drawing years ago.


    There were supposedly plans to badge-engineer a Facel-Vega Excellence with a Packard grille, cathedral taillights, et al., and market it as a Packard, but Mercedes Benz complained about the idea, so it was dropped.

        Studeclunker, nice story about the 57 Plym, but it couldn't have been a Fury if it came new green, Furys only came in one color, and it has never been proven that you could get them from the factory in an optional color. Buckskin beige and gold annodized grill and sportone trim. Most likely was a Belvedere or a Savoy, you could get the Fury option motor in the Belvedere and Savoy.

            The one factory color was a good idea, the gold trim is a bit over the top with darker colors.

                Leonard, Your concept evokes memories of the Humber I owned for a short time.

                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.

                    Yes Bob, I know of at least one person who did in fact do that! In 1957 my DAD sold a Lomita and Los Angeles Calif. restaurant owner a '57 Clipper Town Sedan in solid Lilac with full power inc. dual power antennas. Mr. Bardineas(sp) did in fact, trade in his '55 Clipper 2dr. Hardtop at Frank H. Afton Co. in Inglewood, CA. As dad did with many of his customers, our family became friends with his, and he took us out in his cabin cruiser 20 ft. boat that he pulled quite nicely with the Supercharged 289 powered Clipper!

                        Hey Leonard, I love that ('61 Lark Cruiser) '59 Packard! I would have named it the: Packard "Eagle" !!!

                        Thanks for posting it, but let's not get into it further unless on another post.

                                You know, I looked at that website and didn't find the model. It looked similar, though I don't remember that gaudy stripe down the side. Mrs. Nikens car had the fury script on the fin and a round symbol. As I recall the one remaining was red, white, and blue.
