  • First Serial No. '58 Packard on Ebay

    Hi
    Rundown in need of restoration but note the serial no. 58L-6101. It is the first '58 Packard off the line!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/99949...QQcmdZViewItem

    Now, where is the last: 58L-8134?

    That would make someone a nice project. Doesn't look to be all that bad! Even has a staright dash in it, which is almost unbelieveable.
    Looks as though I'm out on this one, you have to be at least 18 to bid.

        It looks like the padding has been removed from the dash.

                It's definitely a single-digit body number! And as we know, it wouldn't necessarily have to be body #1 to be THE first 58 Packard! Pretty cool![:0]

                No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                        Packard 58L-6101 was assembled on 12-9-57. The body number is 58L Y8 24 (I know it does not look like it in the photo but assure you it is correct). It was shipped to Pawtucket, Rhode Island. You will find additional information and production data on the '58 Packard line in my Almanac column it TW for August 2002.

                            Thanks Richard. It is great to have that wealth of info available. Now I can go to the August T/W and look it up.

                            Did you see my earlier post on a 1920 Stude in Alexandria MN. It is on Craigs List.
