I saw one there when we were in Branson for PAC Nat'l in June. I have photos of that one on my other computer. I am traveling next 3 days, but will try to post what I have.

Are you asking about their display model of some other one? Maybe you don't know?

I was never a fan of 57-58 Packards.
At Branson, I was fascinated by seeing that 57 up close, so I took a lot of close ups.

Thanks for the pix. What burns my butt (besides a flame about yay high) is when museums or articles post patently bogus information that perpetuates a falsehood.

PS Where's the hair dryer?

Well Predictor,

The Survivors have been writing most of 'history' since the beginning of recorded history.

However the "World according to 'Studebaker'" does put a peculiar slant on 'Packards on their way out.'

How wrong was that sign? Let me count the ways:<br /> <ul><li>Packard "bought" Studebaker, not a merger and not the other way around</li><li>Packard "bought" Studebaker in 1954 not 1956</li><li>Curtis Wright entered the picture in 1956 and had nothing to do with the unholy alliance between Packard and Studebaker</li><li>The last "Packard" was built about the same moment I was hatched, July 1958 which by my reckoning is later than "mid 1958"</li></ul> The reason I put "bought" in quotes is because there is some question as to the accuracy of that term due to the convoluted nature of the transaction.<br /> <br /> Comments, corrections, additions etc most welcome and encouraged.<br /><br />And where is the supercharger???????????????????????????????????????????? I thought they were standard for 1957.
