  • Packard Hawk on ebay

    Just found a solid looking Packard Hawk hiding in the Packard category. Not much time left, only a day or two remaining. If I were the seller I would have posted it in the Studebaker list, but anyhow if you're looking for what appears to be a nice project, check it out. I have no affiliation with the car or the seller.

      Yes, I was referring to the project car, not the extremely priced one... your reference reminds me of the fellow in the Knoxville area? that has had his Golden Hawk for sale for $225,000... and it's been for sale for months, maybe years... Huh? Wouldn't you think that someone who has that much money available for play-cars might be smart enough to know how (or how NOT to) spend it? Usually it takes some level of intelligence to make that kind of money!

        Dealer must be part of a drug program as a user! He refers to the car as a Packard GOLDEN HAWK SPORT. Wow!

          It seems he is relying on the "snob" appeal of the Packard name and reputation as fine examples of classic automobiles. This car is exactly like the one that is featured in Hemming Classic magazine. Reckon it's the same one? I don't have the magazine in front of me, and I don't remember where that one is located.

            Amazing how many of the Packard Hawks survived! They keep up showing up in all conditions.
            Shame they sheet metaled screwed the replacement radio face plate on the project car through the dash panel.

              The Packard Golden Hawk was at Barrett on 2 different auctions and made it to 80K both times and didn't make seller's reserve. I sent him an IM to correct his add, along with most recent Hagerty value guide. However he must have blown me off. The other looks like a very good project car. Most recently one Auctioned at Barrett Scottsdale for $95,700. I remember as a kid no one wanted the Packard Hawk - boy have times changed!

                I am impressed with the level of DETAIL on this Packard Hawk, it HAS to be THE BEST one in the World!

                I mean, have you ever seen a better one? or seen one with Gold INSIDE the Tailpipes?

                The Engine appears to have only maybe been started, never actually Run, the heat ports still have the wrong Color; Blue instead of Silver, Paint on them!

                The Engine and Valve Cover Colors are the only flaw I saw except the Wrong Exhaust Tips and the under hood Trans. Filler, and considering the original looking condition of the rest of the Car, the Engine Paint is a Really BIG mistake!

                This one IS worth every bit of $100,000.00, but almost 200,000.00, I don't think so.

                  By the looks of their other adds at the bottom of the page looks like they are all way out of line.

                    Well, I have to differ with you, Bird, on "no one wanted a Packard Hawk" if you were young like me back in the 1960's. One day I was in my home town of South Bend as a newspaper boy/carrier, a customer bought a used Packard Hawk probably in 1965 or 1966. I remember going to collect the regular weekly subscription fee of fifty cents and this guy probably in his thirties who normally had very flashy and clean cars in the driveway had just purchased a Packard Hawk. As I walked up the driveway I greeted him and complimented him on his beautiful car. I was surprised when he said thanks but do you think I paid too much at $3340.00? First of all, I had no idea if he got a fair price, but I when I walked away I was thinking that at $3340.00 he paid close to new retail and that probably someone else questioned him about paying too much on that Packard.

                      Most of them were loaded with enough Options to put them pretty close to Cadillac territory, of $4500.00 to $5000.00 New.

                        I thought it was too but I just checked the magazine and it is not the same car.

                            Thanks Ed for the comment! That P.H up on stands looks a good deal to me, amazing how solid it is considering it is on the East Coast.
                            I could nit pick that Black car to pieces but what's the point! It's not like I am going to buy it but it is good that they are throwing these big prices out there!
                            Golden Hawks are bringing good money as well, it about time they got the recognition they deserved.

                              on the 2nd one: the first thing i'd have to do is replace the trunk lid with the correct one. i wonder if there are any available. Currently at $11K with Reserve met, it may make someone a nice project.
