  • Yet another Packard Hawk on the market!

    'Just searched back to mid-June on the forum and saw no mention of this car...so if it's been discussed here previously, I apologize for the repeat post.

    This advertisement appears in the January / February 2012 edition of Antique Automobile that arrived in today's mail. (It is the official publication of The Antique Automobile Club of America):



    'Kinda cool, being the next-to-the-last one.

    Does anyone know if the last one is extant? BP

    Yes Bob, I think I saw this one on e-bay a while back. I remember that late production number. It probably didn't sell. (or could it be on the market again?)

      Yes, I also checked all the e-bay Completed Listings and didn't see the above car among them. (I'm not sure how far back Completed Listings go.)

      This one was among the old e-bay Completed Listings, but it's obviously not the same car:

      Interesting! BP

        Hi,

        If it's the one I'm thinking of - and that one was #587 - that car was for sale about 2-1/2 months ago for $52,400 in Dutchess County, NY - Wappingers, I believe. Either it was sold and the current owner is trying to flip it at a profit or the previous guy still has it and raised his price. Wait, strike that; the one for sale for $52,400 was the one in Ft. Lauderdale. I think this one was around $44K back then.

          I don't know of, or remember, any Packard Hawk for sale or otherwise in "Wappingers". I reside in the Town of Wappinger and am about four miles from the Village of Wappingers Falls. There is no place named Wappingers, so I do not know which one you are referring to. In any event, I would like to learn more and visit the Hawk, especially if it is still for sale.

            Anyone got a three month old copy of Hemmings? I'm pretty sure it was in Hemmings without a photo.
