1958 Packard Hawk - Studebaker Hawk - $74,000

From the NY Times Automobile section:

"The Packards of 1958 were simply Studebakers dolled up with some horribly contrived styling touches. In the case of the Hawk, the pretty Studebaker grille was replaced by a low, wide fiberglass intake that made the front end look like a catfish. The rear deck had an embossed fake spare tire, and the pièce de résistance was a padded leather armrest on the outside of the door, exposed to the elements."

And I ask, "Isn't being a Studebaker remarkable enough?" ;)
