    That's not your imagination, Bill. "Black Bess" (IIRC; that was the name) was the 1957 Packard prototype built up from a very 1957/1958 Mercury-looking body, in that Packard probably would have bought Lincoln bodies from Ford had they continued in Detroit for the 1957 model year.

    While the original Black Bess was destroyed, a Packard enthusiast built a crude replica of it that was displayed at the 1999 Warren OH Packard Centennial. You may have seen photos of it in several places. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                      • This stuff with computers... it takes time! & this kinda pictures makes me HAPPY!
                        & that's a BIG problem for me: I'll never get sick enough to lay in bed & go through all this nice stuff...
                        "Oh, a Imperial, used to have a -60 coupe of those"...
                        "Yeah, Hemi's always went well with Studebaker's"...
                        When ever this thread is "done" (or right now): make a book of it!
                        With all comments!
                        Then I/you can lay down & read anywhere without the aid of a computer, this is also to good to be waisted if it all broke in some way & then my 2,5 year old son Mowitz & all the rest of our kids can look, read & learn later on...

                              • Hey, that's Church Street in Burlington, VT (notice the Unitarian Church at the head of the street).

                                Church Street was closed to traffic and converted to a pedestrian mall in the 1980's. The downtown has remained fairly vibrant, even though the major retail stores, i.e. Sears, Penny's etc. moved out of the city in the 1970's.

                                The Lark was likely bought from Archie Myers in Winooski.

                                Here's how it looks today, notice the same building on the right corner.
