      It's NOT Blue, it's the Correct Turquoise GREEN.
      A HUGE number of people do not see Blues and Greens correctly, you are not alone!


      The Right side looks good, but I did see on the Left Side, the Water Outlet IS Blue, or Bluer, Blue/Green!

      We could have some fun here, how many of you actually see this as
      BLUE/Green and the "Turquoise Green" as Green?

      From past experience here, not too many I think. All Bobs and Johns are Color blind!

        Careful, Rich! Those last three or four words started disappearing on me. Yeah..., I'm one of those who can't handle the subtle hues.

          Same here Rich and I am a Bob and know the right color of the 57 engine block , but what about the 58 horn button?

            Who knows, doesn't that one look like a White with Gold Bird for a '58 Packard Hawk?

              Yes, that's the horn button for 1958 Packard Hawks. The background for this 57 GH horn button should be white. But otherwise, a nice car.

                I can see that slight difference in color, too.

                  Packard Hawk horn button - black with gold bird

                  I'm pretty sure Packard Hawk's were black with a gold bird. If anyone has a new one and they want to sell, let me know.

                    It will be the second '57 GH I've seen with a cloth & vinyl interior.

                    Here is the other one: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ighlight=cloth

                      The correct white with gold horn buttons are impossible to find. I have one but it has stress cracks in it. The silver and white horn buttons must have been reproduced because they are available from our vendors. Last I checked, S.I. had these Packard Hawk buttons in stock and they are NOS.

                        Very nice car! Seems if a person wants to have a Golden Hawk, opportunities are coming along to own one.

                          That looks nice and brings back memories of the one that I owned for nine years. Mine was also black and also in NYS, but mine was overdrive.

                            My 1957 Golden Hawk does have cloth/vinyl too, at least for the front seat bench. In the back, there is vinyl.

                              I thought we were talking about Original South Bend Factory Interiors, or at least original STYLE.

                              This hybrid is nice, but must be a in-Country installed or re-upholstery job.
