    Wise observations, John.
    It took me 3 years to pry my Packard Hawk away from the former owner. I contacted him after spotting the car among a yard full of Studes and he flatly stated that it was not for sale.
    First he sold me all of his Studebakers, then all of his parts, and then one day out of the clear blue, he called me to come & get the Packard.

ID:	1674749 If memory serves me correctly, the California Auto Museum sold this rough 58 PH on e-bay about a year ago for $12K. They claimed it was rare because it has a manual transmission. It ran but was totally cosmetically challenged.

        Thats weird, Barry's AD has to be the first I have ever seen without Pictures of the CAR!

        I have seen them before with not enough full car Pics, (it only takes TWO, the left front and right rear, to show all 4 sides) mostly close ups of the detail pieces, but never with none.

          Looks like it did not make reserve. Stalled at $23,700.

            $1500. - why is because I cannot see the car. No personal intent in my comments.

              Hi,

              Realistically, not running, if it needs everything and of it is all there and the engine is salvageable but not seized up, a fair unemotional price would be somewhere between $3K and $5K. If you've got a good interior and not too much rot but still need to restore the engine and chassis - $10K is the limit. A clean survivor with good paint, exterior, engine and no rust - $12K to $20K. A full frame-off, pristine and correct $30K to $45K.

                I have seen quality restored examples sell for far more than that, but today's market is very soft, as we saw last night. I don't expect things to get better anytime soon, either..

I'm sure he would appreciate it and may consider selling to you at a later date.
                  I'm all over it. I'm trying to help with the brake problem now.

                    I found it stashed behind some buildings, tracked down the owner and started a conversation. We talked a little about the car and alot about the owner and his life adventures. I didn't even ask about purchasing because I don't know what to offer.

                      "If you and the current owner come to an agreement...grab it and don't look back!" Thanks Mr. Clary. I will.
