  • E-Bay Packard Hawk; unusual color combo

    This may well be the original color combo, but I'll bet it is "1 of 1" of the 588 built:

    I think I agree with you Bob, aqua and tan go together like Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett.


    Love birds...Red Hawks in mating season.

          I wasn't making a negative remark; I actually like it, too.

          Chiffon anything, in this case soft aqua/green, is one of those colors that is so "right" on a 1950s car.

          Amazing how colors follow decades. A 1955 Ford in Desert Rose (pink) and Snowshoe White looks as normal as can be, even very attractive, as does a 1956 Golden Hawk in Doeskin and Mocha 2-tone...

          ...but imagine a 1964 Ford Galaxie 2-door hardtop in Desert Rose with Snowshoe White vinyl top....or a 1964 Gran Turismo Hawk in Doeskin with Mocha-colored vinyl Sportsroof! [xx(][xx(]

          Yet those examples are less than one decade apart. [8D]BP

            Since I'm not a fan of the PH, I hesitate to make a comment, good or bad. But I'm wondering what kind of a nose emblem is that? With the shadow, looks a little like a squashed bug glued on with pancake batter.



            Supposed to look like this?



            I guess that's called "Gittin' the most outta whatcha got!"

            Nice color, tho.

              I think that color is great on that car. Surprised it isn't more common. Is that emblem a Packard crest?

                Squashed bug? A large container of liquid Ivory Soap is being dispatched to your door with which you are to wash out your mouth, Johnny![:0]

                AHEM! That is The Packard Family Coat of Arms to which you are referring as a squashed bug! It could have come from any number of earlier Packards, especially those from Detroit earlier in the decade. [8D]BP

                    I saw that car, while at the Nationals in Pa. A good looking car. I would be proud to say it was mine.

                      Ditto here! It was the first car we saw when entering the foyer of the AACA museum. It made my day, especially since Packards were very sparsely represented there. There were far more Studes & Stearns Knights than Packards for some odd reason.

                          I would like it more if the interior was white, rather than tan. But it's all good.

                              Only four Packard Hawks were painted with the Parchment White over Surf Green. This is one of the four.
