    It even appears to be originally a Beautiful Mountain Blue Metallic and White Car before the awful Tangerine Earl Scheibe job.

    I agree, no matter what mechanicals need repair, what is left of the body is worth it!

      Seller says "the engine, with its newly rebuilt carburetor, starts quickly, and runs quietly and powerfully".

      I think his price is suprisingly fair.

        thanks for the link, bams!

        if i had the $, a tow vehicle and health from a few years ago, i'd be all over it!

        gives me something to think about - as "MeatLoaf" said, "let me sleep on it"...

          Geesh that rust is bad though I don't know if you could save this unless you really really want to but this could instrumental in the resto of a 58 hard top. Especially at that price.

            If that's what you are thinking-
            you may wanna think twice about whatever it is you are gonna do with that GT and the other car.

            This Packard is not only a ride to save-
            it's a way better ride then ANY C/K~
            IMHO, that is...

              The starlight in question has had the small amount of rust it did have repaired already, the hawk is rusted and would provide mechanicals and interior... maybe some trim. It would then be arted out and scrapped. I've learned how daunting rust repair really is, and won't be getting into anything too rusty now. Look closely at the photos that hole in the floor pan goes all the way to underneath the seat. Really too bad too, those 58's aren't seen enough, I would sacrafice a 58 studebaker like the one MB had to save it, rather than see it leave the road.
              I wonder why more people don't like the 58 packards

                No need for that- I have parts cars.
                I know how/where they rust...
                That one is nowhere near bad at all. Yet.

                  I have seen this car in person it is from California not too far from me at least at one time in its life. It really is quite rusty as I remember it, quite a bit more than the photos seem to show, I think it can be saved, but it is quite rough.
