  • 56-57 Packard wagon 2 dr

    I was wondering if they made a 2 dr Packard wagon of the same years(56-57). All I have seen are 4 drs. Thanks.

    Nope, no two door Packard wagons. Not by Packard and not by Studebaker.

        I thought there was a 2 door Lark wagon made in the 60's (of course, a Stude, not a Packard)

            I think what 'Whacker' is trying to say is that Packard didn't make any 2 door wagons in Detroit, nor did Studebaker/Packard make any 2 door Packard wagons in South Bend.

            Has anyone else ever thought of 'building' one- I know I have!!!

            There were 2 door Studebaker wagons from '54-'61 of course...

                First thought of building one from a Studebaker would be, not that hard. Different grill and bumpers and interior, dash and gauges. But then I thought how about exterior trim and tail lights. O'well mine is to far along to consider the change.(would be different though) Just a thought.[)]

                    The trim would be the hard part, for sure. You're not the only one who's thought about it, and now I guess I'm not either!!! [:0] Cool.
                    That's just one of the 'What If' cars I've thought about building. Someday when I have a place, and can 'play'- there will be a very interesting car being built~

                        Geez, I wouldn't think building a 57 Packard 2-door wagon would be tough AT ALL! Start with a Scotsman and a Clipper like Paul just sold on ebay. Couple months worth of effort and you've got the "experts" scratchin' their little heads![}]

                            The last Packard wagon built by Packard was 1948. Then Studebaker built Packard Wagons in 57 & 58. All 57 & 58 Packard wagons were 4 doors. In 1957 they built 869 Packard wagons and in 1958 they built 159 wagons.
