    Be sure to save the Serial Number and Body Number tags. The Biblical account of Lazarus comes to mind....<GGG> BP
    Lazarus? Maybe. But I'm thinking more of Ezekiel's story of "The valley of the Dry Bones".

    I realize the story of this car has been told, but I missed it. How did it come to be left, to become what it is today? I always loved finding cars like this when I was a young Studebaker enthusiast

    Just the halo stainless will bring a good penny, shine that baby up and take it to York.

    Bob, I have an idea of the car that comes to your mind. I bet it was some extremely rare medium blue late 60's Mopar that looked like it was in a multi-rollover accident along with some serious rust issues which got revealed once all the bondo popped off in the impact. In the end that car got the 'Lazarus'-type restoration treatment. I believe the link you provided was on cudaworld at one time, but it doesn't appear to be archived if that was the site it was on. Just maybe there IS a frame still under that '58 Packard Hawh with the secret serial number still able to be visible after sandblasting it as well...

    Looks like lawn art to me! Put it up on concrete blocks next to the road with your business advertised on it, it will surely get lots of attention!

    Hi Matt,

    Looks like the fiberglass nose is gone and the trunk lid is shot to hell. How are the dagmars on the front bumper? Is there steering column and dash in there? Can you compile a list of what's salvageable and post it or email it? What number is it?

    Will that front end fit your wagon?

    The energy and enthusiasm of a man in his early 20s would be nice.

    Other than that... just share the stories and an occasional picture, please, as usual. Excellent catch.
