1958 Packard Hawk For Sale or Trade The last of the line. In 1958, Studebaker-Packard introduced a top of the line two door hardtop called the Packard Hawk, the premium verision of Studebaker's vaunted Hawk series featuring a Duncan McRae-designed fiberglass front end that reminded many an observer of a catfish. Under the hood of the Packard Hawk is a 275 horsepower in the form a V-8 engine of 289 cubic inches displacement with a Jet-Stream McCullough Supercharger. Promotional literature described the engine as "developed and refined for aircraft, and long used on automotive engines only in racing cars, the supercharger has now been successfully applied by Studebaker-Packard to a family sports car." The Hawk featured leather upholstery, an Imperial-style Continental trunk lid, and a full range of instrumentation. One of 588 Packard Hawks built, this one is lovely finished in Parchment White with Canyon Copper top and a butterscotch leather interior. In 2013, RM Auctions auctioned a similar Hawk for $88,000. These cars are exceedingly rare and will only appreciate. Only 588 were manufactured, with about 80 known to exist worldwide.
