    I've seen that car in person several times, it's a really stunning car. I never would have thought about painting a car that color but on those cars it really works great.

    Sort of like Speedsters... lemon and lime are pretty hideous colors on normal cars, but on Speedsters it looks great.

    What is suprising is that beige color (colour for the down under folks) is back again. I've seen several in Toledo area, however, I don't think anyone will see a beige Packard hawk in this area anymore

    "all corvettes are red". the first car i remember was dad's 56 olds red & white two tone. the 1st avanti i rode in (a church member's) when i was around 13, was gold. most of lee iacooca's "cab forward" chryslers in the late 90's, were in ads, shown in gold paint. most of the packard hawks i've seen for sale are beige.

    just wondering...

    and i think the purple and gold would be cool. heck, i almost bought a chameleon trans-am around 12 years ago. and you can see, my avanti wasn't gold...
    Correct Corvanti, car builders do surveys to see what colours they are going to paint the new model, just what was popular in 1958 dosen't mean it is now. I understand that if you don't like the colour you are not going to paint your car in it. I bought a r2 Lark that is black, I am going to paint it blue mist, cause I saw one in that colour and I liked it., still that car is rare and should be painted in the original colour, but I don't like black.
    Apoligies accepted, you know I am only kidding ED, must give you a call and catch up.

    To: packard hawk 58--- Sorry Stude Sovereign, Your workmanship is A#1, but the jewel beige main body has been, and will always be, a tough sell. Still, I do understand- 'original is original'.

    I have seen other 58's with jewel beige roof and the purplish color that I was refering to, and thought that be a nice color combination with the gold mylar on the fins


    Purple & Gold! GO HUSKIES!!!!

    Just checked out Joe Parson's 58, and loved it. According to Mike Williams there were only 2 Packard hawks - Shadowtone Red Metallic over Jewel Beige (P5855) combonations and after looking at Joe's I have made up my mind to go with those colors for mine. My wife doesn't care much for the Beige (or the catfish either ) however these colors will make it stand out much better.

    Yes the dark red/purple mix is Shadowtone Red. If need be, in the spring I could send you pics of my 58 Packard Sedan. It is all original and done in that color.
