In Packard’s final year of production, 1958, it created one of its rarest treasures, the 1958 Packard Hawk. By way of its association with Studebaker at that point Packard came out with its first little sports car, based on the Studebaker Hawk GT. The seller out of San Antonio,Texas says it still has its original 289cid V8 w 2-barrel Stromberg carbs, and McCulloch Supercharger Model VS-57S. Yes, these came supercharged. It also has power assist 4-wheel brakes, Flight O Matic transmission, power steering, tinted glass, plus optional undercoating, and Twin Traction differential. Other options include, white sidewall tires, Deluxe Push Button radio and dealer installed optional dual outside mirrors. It was originally sold to a lady in Minnesota where it spent time in the Ellinghusen Museum. This historic car would be the key car in any top flight collection.
This car has been SOLD.
