Lot #724 - 275bhp, 289ci overhead valve V8 engine with a McCulloch centrifugal supercharger, BorgWarner Flight-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension with unequal length A-arms, coil springs and anti-sway bar, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs and 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 120.5". One-of-only 588 built and very few survivors. Well-restored to original specification; one of the finest available. The end of the road for a great American automaker. This is the fastest Packard ever built, period, as the 1958 model year proved the last for this famed marque. The Hawk was a "one-year wonder" with only 588 made, which is befitting of the factory's advertising claim that it was, indeed, "the most exclusive car in America." Thanks to their distinctive design and unusual dual-marque history, the few survivors are coveted by enthusiasts of 1950s styling, as well as by Packard and Studebaker collectors alike.
