1958 Packard Hawk, San Francisco

from Chip Lord in The City:
"A '56 Packard Hawk with the most awkward paste-on nose in Studebaker/Packard history. Found here in San Francisco."--CL

  1. It's not a 1956 - it's a 1958. There were only 588 made. I know. I own one - #151. To you it might be ugly but to me they are beautiful. Saw my first one in an S-P showroom at the age of 7 and finally got one 52 years later.- Mike O'Handley, Kenmore, WA
