      Hi

      58L-8106 is very late production, twenty-eight '58 Packards from the last, 58L-8134 built on July 25, 1958. Hope it finds a good, appreciative owner and conservator.

        The tough part about the Packards.....many were made weeks earlier then those made on the last few days and still went out of the factory after those made you on the last day. One would have to look at all of the production orders to actually see which cars or vin'sthe were the last to leave.

            Seems like a lot of car for $1700 for someone that does their own paint work.

              Something struck me when looking at this car. This surely was the last for Studebaker - and maybe the last of the American auto makers to have a robe rail on the back of the front seat. Anyone wanna correct me on that???
              No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                'Can't "correct" you with any certainty, Bob, but I'd bet some luxury brand in the 1960s continued the practice. ('Probably nothing in a price range as comparatively low as was this Packard in 1958, however, so you could well be correct among cars below the high-price field. ) BP

                  It went for $1,700.00 which was a fair deal. A coat of paint and a complete interior will make a world of difference
