    Since he states "Studabaker" bought out Packard in 1958, how does he explain the '57 Packards? The "merger" took place in 1954.

    It would be cool if a 58L-ophile acquired these, so we could learn the background about these cars, and see them revived. My guess is that they were in relatively good shape & would not have required a complete restoration--just repairs-- when they were placed in storage. But, that was probably in the early 70's. Just thinking $3000 for the pair, to a good home,
    a might be about right.

    I just looked at the pictures I took when I last visited El Cajon. None of the ones I took of my '58 Packard or Dad's '58 President show enough of the back seat to answer either of your questions. Drat.

    I've always heard/read it the same way- Packard bought Studebaker.

    History rewritten in CList ads~
    I saw another one last week that told of Studebaker going bankrupt in '66.

    Who you gonna believe...?

    It has been interesting watching the ads for these poor Packards over the years.

    The pictures are getting better, and they show how the cars have been cleaned up a bit. (no really- they're cleaner now!!!) The description changes from time to time, but rarely does it include the information most folks are looking for. But the one thing I have yet to understand is how over the two to three years I've seen them for sale- the prices have never changed.

How do you expect to convey value if you present it as if it had none to you?
    Some soap and water would go a long way.

    Neat cars, but $6500 for the pair?? Yikes! Thats a little high. I would think more in the $2500 range for the both of them.

    I think that happens when you NEVER touch the Cars after purchase!

    Were they Studabaker Pakards the last time they were up, or have they recently been converted?

    Those two '58 Packard 4-door sedans in Orting, WA apparently didn't sell last time they were listed and they are listed again on the Seattle CL. He's asking $6500 for the two or $3500 each.
