Anyone know where the Last Packard from South Bend is?

I know South Bend has the last Studebaker in the Museum, but does anyone know where the last South Bend produced Packard is? What's the last serial number? Just curious, I figured with the production orders, it should be easily identified as the last car? Was wondering if it still exists?

According to Steven Kelley's article, “Packard: A Quest for Answers,” published in The Boulevard News of East Grand Packards (a region of The Packard Club), in the March-April 2006 issue: The last Packard ever assembled was built on July 25, 1958, one of 15 built that day. A four-door sedan painted solid Mountain Blue, its serial number was 58L-8134, body #905, engine #2123. Equipped with a manual transmission, it featured an optional overdrive, whitewall tires, Climatizer heater, push button radio, and a manual rear deck antenna. Its delivery destination, and its fate today, are unknown.

This isn't exactly relevant, but the last ever Packard was actually made in 1999 as a concept car by someone that bought the rights to the name and iconography and planned to relaunch the make.
