    It would make sense that it was a 59 Fury, starting in 59 they were available in the full spectrum of colors that other models were, but from 56-58 they were only monotone Buckskin beige

    The 59 Fury had the red/white/blue emblem:

    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.


    Lotsa Larks!

    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.

    Rich.

    [/quote] I guess this is getting way off topic, but I always thought there should have been a 59 Packard. I did this drawing years ago.

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