  • '58 Packard

    Gentlemen, Just read my new November OLD CAR"S WEEKLy and it has a picture of a '58 Packard that was sold at RM"S Fall Hershey auction for $45,000. Looks like the one I saw at the last International show in South Bend. Sorry, I'm not techi enough to know how to get the picture from the magazine to the forum. Bob Fish

    Bob, any chance there's a Frederick Samuel Fish in your family tree???
    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

              uh oh...

              Why would someone go to such an extreme with a "thorough refurbishing" when
              the car's "odometer read only 20,800 miles"?

              And then turn around and do it oh soooo WRONG?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

              I just don't get it...

                    I'm with you there- I just wonder why they didn't do it right-
                    That way we wouldn't have to be so wrong.

                    The engine shoud be silver for one thing, and that 'caution fan' sticker doesn't belong there. I can't quite tell for sure, but the dash pad doesn't look right to me either. I might be wrong.

                    Seems to me that a 20,000 mile car should'a showed them what it was supposed to look like.

                      The 58 Packard wasnt the most beautiful Packard but it would win hands down parked next to a 58 Buick or Olds! As far as being correct goes, the STP sticker doesnt belong either, but I wouldn't care.

                        If it didn't have those last minute head lights and some gold mylar down the side I would park it in one of my garages for the winter and try to keep it warm.

                              What a great looking car! I love the setting in which it was photographed.
