Packard Serial Numbers for 1958

I have a 1958 Packard sedan. Serial number 58L7019. Does the "7019" denote a sedan? or did Packard just run straight serial numbers for the 4 versions of the car in 1958? So my question really is, can you tell by the serial number if its a sedan, coupe, wagon or hawk?

Believe there should be another plate somewhere containing more information. The 58 is a rebadged Studebaker and follows their numbering scheme. According to the 58 supplement to the Studebaker service manual Packard models had 4 designations.

58L-Y8 is the 4 door sedan
58L-P8 is the 4 door station wagon
58L-J8 is the 2 door hard top
58L-K9 is the sport hard top which is the Hawk

Starting serial number is 58L-6101 for the Packard and 58LS-1001 for the Hawk.

Engine numbers for the Packard start L-101 and for the Hawk, LS-5201

The body ID tag located under hood on fire wall passenger side of car will ID car year body style and build number of body. These tags are attached with screws not welded. This number no direct connection wit serial number.
If you get build sheet from Studebaker National Museum it will have body number engine serial number and serial number of car and other factory installed options.
Body numbers are not in order as they were built and last in was usually first out.
Serial number is stainless steel spot welded to drivers side door post
