1958 Packard Hawk

The Packard Hawk began life as a special project for Curtiss-Wright executive Roy Hurley. It features the same drivetrain as Studebaker’s Golden Hawk along with a leather interior.

The distinctive Packard Hawk hood and nose were made of fiberglass. The Packard Hawk resurrected Studebaker’s ‘53-’55 models’ trunk lid topped with an imitation spare-tire overlay.
