    Looks like the HAMB members take their cue from a Packard guy. Yeah - theres nutin' prettier than a batthtub Packard! ->insert puke smiley here <-
    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

      The stainless is heading to my place. Anybody want some Packard Hawk front wheel well mouldings when I get them restored?

            I recognize this car now.

            It is a canary yellow PH that someone had modified. It had a targa top. A few months ago I'd seen it on the H.A.M.B. message board in a discussion of customizing Conestoga wagons. Some guy had photo-shopped the front of this and pasted it onto the front of a Conestoga wagon as an idea for a rat rod.

            It was clean in those photos but the dagmars and end pieces were missing from the front bumper; and, as I said, the top had been modified. It had one of those short black snap-on tops in those photos.

            Can't really say I'm that sorry to see it go; it was a real horror story.

              Here's a photo of it from the HAMB.

              Looks crispy...

                Thanks for posting the picture Chris. It looks like from the doors back there is a lot of good sheet metal to help some owner with a rust bucket to bring it back to life.

                        Mine should be home this week. Body blocked, roof should be in Jewel Beige and firewall in Shadowtone Red, Body shop 2 miles from home. Car coming home for drivetrain and p/s gearbox, then back to shop for frontclip and paint. I was really excited when body shop pointed ou that there was no rust on this car except for some surface rust in the trunk. Reminded me why I went to California to buy it. Ron Daniels owes me a finder's few, along with that black Hawk he's getting from you, I found him 3 others that he bought from the swap page in Kentucky, one of which was a 3 speed. I am excited to get mine finish, but a little jealous on the 3 speed.

                          I have most the parts to make yours a 3 speed with over drive, T85, bell-housing, fly wheel, and clutch set up might even have peddles and linkage if I look around, any word on Ron's trip out here?

                              Never mind,

                              I know those cars. My brother went up to check them out. I passed. Would have been more interested if they were closer but cost to haul them all the way up here would have exceeded what all three are worth in their current condition. He's got another halfway completed inside the garage. He wanted $22K for it. Ron's got a lot of rot work ahead of him.
