At least the grille is cool, kind of like the "Predictor."

This car is recognized by the Packard Club of America and the Antique Automobile Club of America. This beautiful car is a head turner anywhere you drive or show it.


Is that a valid statement and if so, what category. Wasn't it made off a GM chassis and priced waaaay up there. I think there was one at a PI show one year--or maybe it was not the actual show, just in the parking lot.

Ahhhhh---that's one of those Fugly creations from Bayliff, a funeral director from Ohio with a little too much time and money on his hands. He used to bring these creations to Auburn every year to ballyhoo. MOR-GM with a Packard grille stuck on it.

Wow. An '83 Buick Riviera with crap hung on it, kind of like "Lipstick on a pig"(this is not a political reference). Its a shame the Packard name was evenly affiliated with it.

In 1978 Budd Bayliff introduced a line of Packard Bayliff sedans and coupes based on the then-current GM cars. He says a couple of hundred were built and as far as I know they were titled based on the underlying GM chassis. Bayliff then (1992) sold out his enterprise to Gullickson but retained the right to continue manufacturing his 1934 look-alike cars which at least are close-enough copies that some of the fiberglass panels interchange with the real thing.

For those with further interest, the latest issue of The Packard Cormorant (Summer 2008, #131) has an article on all the modern attempts to reintroduce a Packard-named vehicle.

Beauty is in the beholder's eye, but I'll add my vote to those that say the 80's GM-based Bayliff Packards's are butt-ugly.

It looks like something like an East LA Pimp ride or a 85 Rive built by Johnny Cash when he worked in Detroit on the assembly line in his song
