    The base Packard Hawk MSRP, had there been such a thing in 1958, was $3,995.

    The idea of an MSRP arrived the next year with mandatory Monroney (yes, that is the correct spelling, Monroney) "window stickers".

    Most Packard Hawks had the $189 Flightomatic option on top of that, of course. Even overdrive was $110.40 extra, so there was "no way" you could buy one for $3,995 plus freight, because that price would reflect a straight three-speed transmssion, which wasn't available! (Welcome to the wonderful world of mandatory options...) [8D]BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Looks like the car was taken off Ebay. Saw this at the fins exhibit when it was at the Hershey Museum. If I remember it was missing the Packard name on the trunk and the Hawk had the screws on the wrong way.

      Was a nice color. As for the Packard Hawk bashers c'mon, how could you not like a face like the Packard Hawk ?? Its always smiling at you..

        I have seen this car in person about 6 times in the last 18 moths. it is far more beautiful in person than in pictures. These pictures do not do this car justice at all. I'll look around as i may have additional pictures taken within that time frame. IMHO it is drop dead gorgous when seen in person.
