There are several packards but you need to pay attention. At 1:45 and 4:10 Frost & French Packard dealer. I believe they became a Studebaker dealer and if I remember seeing them selling factory Packard and Studebaker parts into the seventies?

Yes, and maybe longer. I don't know if they sold directly to the public or was a wholesaler who sold thru others.

The late Steve Williams definitely bought parts thru them and I think it might have even been into the 80s. When I was doing the 56 in the early 80s, anytime I wanted something Steve did not have he said he would need to place an order. It was usually thru F&F but sometimes thru SASCO in South Bend. Not sure if either one of them could have been affiliated with what was left of Studebaker or if they had some tie in with Nate Altman and the inventory he bought along with rights to the Avanti. Whichever one he went with, almost always Steve got what was ordered.

I had a 1963 Studebaker Avanti. Among the records were notations of parts purchased from Frost & French. It was a long-time Pasadena car.
