    Just posted on their site. The Packard Hawk sold for $63,250. In 2013, I believe there have been at least 2 other PHs auctioned for $88K and $90K. Two GHs sold for ~$28K and $32K.

    Thanks guys!!!


    So now the only thing I am wondering about is this~
    what set of tires do you think the car comes with?

    I see wide whites and narrow whites in the pics...

    Yes, only the 56J (Golden Hawk) had the dual "humps" to clear the exhaust. (on C/K bodies). I wonder if it can be utilized on an regular hawk to make exhaust routing easier?

    Yes, Different arrangement Dave. On the sedans the batwing not only serves as the 'A' pillar support, but also serves as support for the rear of the engine. On the C/K's, the batwing only serves as support for the 'A' pillars, and there is a separate, smaller, bolt in crossmember used to support the rear of the engine (With one exception, the 56J)

    I have a question for you C/K gurus...
    Is it me, or is that 'bat wing' out of place under that car?
    I ask because my Packard sedan looks like this~



    Note the cut-outs (notches) for the dual exhaust.

    Didn't they do the same thing for the Packard Hawks?
    (and/or other C/Ks?)

    We did have a 47 M5, which was supposed to be Julie's. However, upon adding up the restoration cost of the Hawk she suggested that we sell it to help defer the cost. Now she is once again kicking the idea of another truck. Time will tell. Btw she was the one dusting off the Hawk at the last show

    Nice looking Packard.....one thing, the turn signal 'wings' are on upside down. Easily rectified.

    Reminds me of when I bought my '50 Commander. My wife was away for the long weekend camping with her grown kids. I brought it home, backed into the garage and put a car cover over it. When she came home and pulled into the garage I went out to help her unpack her car. She strode by me saying "I see it and I don't want to talk about it". The next day she saw the car uncovered on a sunny summer day and the rusty hulk she thought was under the car cover turned out to be a beautiful green bullet nose. She never got up the gumption to chew me out for buying something like that without talking with her first.
    To top it off, 4 years later SHE suggested I buy a very nice '61 Champ truck that was for sale on Craigslist. Who knew?

    Jd. Can't you go ahead and buy it and then when it gets there beg for forgiveness. YOU KNOW THEY SAY It's EASIER TO BEG FOR FORGIVENESS THEN IT IS TO ASK FOR PERMMISSION. steve
