            And the front doors; assuming said PackardBaker is a 4 door will fit a plethora of 1955 1/2 to 1962 vehicles including the Champ till the end (1964).

              If it is a 1957, it came with a supercharged engine.
              Why is it being parted out? Please try to save this rare car, or offer it to someone else to save, if there is enough of it left to save.

                Is it a 57 or 58.......huge difference in parts. If it is a 58, I am interested in the front end clip.

                  Hi

                  If that is a factory installed air conditioning unit, it's rare and should be wanted by someone. Check the tags attached to the upper right cowl. If the car was ordered with it, they attached a small strip tag with "air cond." on it.

                  Would you please post the numbers found on those cowl tags, as well as the serial number, found on the plate on the front hinge pillar of the driver's door. It looks like "58L-####"

                  Thanks!
                  Steve

                    If the a/c was factory original......what an extremely rare site. Also it would be the first 58 Packard that I have seen with a/c.

                      It appears to me to be a 58. Notice the fin on a fin. What I am surprized to see is how clean the l/f hinge post area is where it is subject to all the road debris. A very well optioned car w/ power steering & brakes & the mentioned a/c.

                        Can't you just SEE a '57 Stude front clip on that baby???
                        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                          Yes, why yes I can. I've always thought that my 'phantom' Stude build would start with a '56 Classic, but a '58 Packard would make for quite the stand in!!!
