1958 Packard Series 58L 4 Door Sedan. Significantly rare only 2,034 of the three standard Packard models (sedan, hardtop and station wagon) were produced and restyled by Duncan McRae, changes for 1958 included Quad headlights and following the tailfin craze this car had forward looking rear outward-canted steel fin extensions that were mounted to the tops of the existing vertical rear fenders that enclosed chrome trimmed taillight lenses. Rounded points on the rear bumper are directly under the fins creating a balanced symmetrical look. In the front a unique looking low, wide "fish mouth" grille was used. Factory Air Conditioning with under the dash vents and controls. Engine 289 cubic inch small block making 225 horsepower. 4 barrel carburetor. A top mounted modern style oil filter is definitely unique. Generator. Power steering and Power Front Brakes. The Brown interior is pristine and looks amazing. 2 tone Brown with a Tan stripe bench seat. Beautiful dash pad has no rips or tears or sun bleaching. Two texture and two color door panels look great. A slightly rust/brown color carpeting creates a nice contrasting look. A stainless steel gauge cluster plate encases actual gauges, not warning lights, a large speedometer and original AM radio. Paint is P-5818 Canyon Copper Polyurethane. Another notable change was an attractive hardtop roofline similar to the Chrysler/Desoto designs. Switching to a one-piece drive shaft the engineers were able to flatten the floor, which also allowed them to flatten the roof. An elegant White stripe outlined with trim runs down the side of the car from fender tip to the lower rear fin along with a matching White section on the roof. The change to 14" wheels from larger wheels made the 1958 Packard noticeably lower. Steel hubcaps feature a red hexagon in the center and a black painted ring. Wide white wall poly tires.
This vehicle is either classic, antique, exotic, super rare, or all of the above. This vehicle is on consignment from a very large collection of vehicles. They are being sold as museum quality cars which means they may not run or drive and may not have run or driven in numerous years. The vehicles are of a condition where they would be on display in a museum. As museum pieces we were required to disconnect or remove batteries and drain fuel tanks. Once again, these vehicles have not been driven, or even started in quite some time.
While we do our best to provide the highest quality muscle cars with an honest and reliable description and realize the importance of transparency when selling vehicles. That being said, we have not built, modified, changed or personally owned this vehicle. Whether this vehicle is consigned or owned by Past & Present Motor Cars we do not know the vehicles complete history since new. We want to be clear and try to answer any questions our customers might have prior to purchasing. Additionally, we not only welcome but we encourage 3rd party independent inspections. Please inquire prior to purchase to make sure the advertised vehicle has not already been sold. We list our vehicles on multiple websites and a vehicle can sell at any time. If a customer chooses to purchase sight unseen (many of our customers choose this option) the customer accepts the vehicle AS IS and WHERE IS and understands we cannot address concerns after purchase. For this reason, it's important all concerns are addressed prior to purchase. We make every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness. It is the sole responsibility of the customer to verify the existence of options, accessories and the vehicle condition before time of sale. Financing is Available with low rates and Vehicle Shipping is available from our Showroom to your Garage. A Classic Car Warranty is Available for Purchase from a 3rd Party.
