      The cars in the Ohio junkyard you are talking about have all been crushed.

        Donald, I kinda figured they would've been scrapped by now. Sad to hear, but pretty much inevitable. I remember the pigs running loose there. I think I have one of the owner's business cards that has a hog on it. T'was right close to Toledo Express airport if I remember right.
        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            Matthew, My Dad has had one longer than I have been alive. If I recall, it is solid black with no white roof. I do not know the body number. I will try to get it the next time I am over there. Zane

              For anyone looking to restore a 58 packard wagon there is a 58 studebaker wagon on eBay. Would make a nice donor body and frame.

                  This one has possibilities if all of the rust is just surface, it looks pretty straight.

                      Back in the early 90"s Brad Kuchan and I were at the annual gathering in Bloomington, il, at Miller Park, Brad had 3 body styles of the 1958 Packard{ he had 2 wagons} and I had a Packard hawk, the picture of all the body styles together was really neat. Do not see that very often!

                          If you would like pictures google car lust 1957&58 packard bakers make sure to open the file. One of every model at this show. All six and then some. For those that do not know about this show it is very worth while attending. Summit racing.
