Studes of the Month

The first "Stude of the Month" appeared in October 1995. The early scans were typically small due to the modem and storage limitations of the time. Many of the older photos used in this section and in the "More Cool Studes" section have been rescanned when hard copies were available. Others have been replaced with better or more recent images submitted elctronically. If you see your car or truck and can provide updated photos, preferably in electronic form, please contact me at wj2d44@gmail.com and I will be happy to post the updated images.

Packard Corner

Studebaker and Packard merged in 1954 to form the Studebaker-Packard Corporation. One offshoot of the merger was the 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk which was powered by Packard's big 352 V-8. The Detroit Packard plant was closed in 1956, and Packard production was moved to South Bend. The 1957 and 1958 Packards were basically Studebakers with different styling and upgraded interiors. Many Packard buffs consider the latter to be nice Studebakers as opposed to "real" Packards.

National Museum 1957 Packard Clipper

  • This beautiful 1955 Packard Caribbean Convertible is owned by Reggie Nash of Richmond, Virginia. Reggie's Packard is one of 500 Caribbeans produced for the 1955 model year. Here are side, lids up, front, and under the hood shots of this fine car. This closeup shows the dual rear fender antennas, integrated dual exhaust, cathedral tail lights, and huge trunk area. The pictures were taken at the 62nd Annual ODMA Meet held May 2015 in Verona, Virginia.
  • Bill Brown's pristine 1958 Packard Hardtop front angle and rear angle views. This is one of only 675 Packard Hardtops produced for the 1958 model year which was Packard's last. Bill Junge sent the pictures which were taken at the March 2013 Studebaker Vacation Car Show in Laughlin, Arizona.
  • Bill Storr's outstanding 1955 Packard 400 Hardtop front angle, rear view, and interior and dash. This is a big car weighing 4,250 pounds with power coming from Packard's 352 cubic inch V8 rated at 260 horsepower. As noted above, the same engine upgraded to 275 horsepower was used in the 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk. Stylist Richard Teague designed both the 1955 "real" Packard and the 1957 Studebaker based Packard Clipper. Here is a picture of Bill's 1955 Packard taken in downtown Edmonton during the summer of 2012.
  • Bill Storr also sent pictures of his other 1955 Packard Four Hundred, a rust free 78,000 mile California car that came to Canada by way of Arizona. Here are rear angle, side view, interior, and under hood shots of this fine automobile. It has been repainted in the original colors of Fire Opal and White Jade.
  • Here is a picture of Bill Storr's two 1955 Packard Hardtops together in one place. This view shows the iconic cathedral taillight and this view shows both cars from another angle.
  • Bill Storr sent this picture of a recreation of a 1955 Packard ad photo. The couple in the recreation are Bill and his wife Kathy. Here is a color picture of Bill's car taken on the same day. The pictures were taken by Photographer Dan Wells of Edmonton, Alberta. Dan came up with the idea and mastered the photograph.
  • This Custom 1956 Packard Clipper Pickup was spotted at the March 2013 Studebaker Swap Meet in York, Pennsylvania. Here are a rear angle view and a side view. My understanding is that it is one of several Packards of various years that have been converted to pickups by Speedwell Garage, a Packard service and restoration shop located in Parkton, Maryland. An interesting feature is that the rear doors have been retained and can be opened for access to storage space under the pickup bed.
  • John Zapach's Sharp 1958 Packard Sedan front angle, rear view, interior and dash, rear seat area, fourteen inch wheel with Packard hexagon logo hubcap, and under the hood. John's car is in very nice original condition. It is one of only 1,200 Packard sedans assembled during the 1958 model year. It is equipped with automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, Twin Traction, air conditioning, tinted glass, windshield washer, and factory pushbutton AM radio with decklid antenna.
  • Rusty but restorable 1958 Packard Station Wagon sold by Lee Thomas on eBay. This rear view shows the factory dual antennas on this rare wagon.
  • Totally awesome 1958 Packard Hawk owned by Glenn Koogler of Raphine, Virginia.
  • Hal Hermann's 1957 Packard Clipper Sedan is similiar to the one in the Studebaker National Museum. Supercharged Studebaker 289 under the hood was the same as in the Golden Hawk.
  • More recent front angle, rear angle, and interior shot of Hal Hermann's pristine 1957 Clipper.
  • Artist's rendering of a 1957 Clipper.
  • Solid black 1957 Clipper Sedan that was for sale on AutoTrader a while back.
  • A 1957 Packard Sedan next to a 1956 Studebaker Wagon. There is an obvious family resemblance between these two.
  • Gary Himelfarb's rare 1957 Packard Station Wagon. A side view of the same wagon.
  • Another 1957 Packard Station Wagon.
  • Very rare 1958 Packard Station Wagon once owned by the late Sam Miller.
  • A more recent picture of the same wagon awaiting restoration by its current owner, Joe Barrier of New Prague, Minnesota.
  • Also rare 1958 Packard Hardtop.
  • Another 1958 Packard Hardtop from the rear.
  • Tom Healy's 1958 Packard Hawk was the December 1996 Stude of the Month.
  • Paul Coyne's 1958 Packard Sedan was the April 1998 Stude of the Month. Front view and twin tail fin.
