This one should be ID 279
Thats a 1969 De Tomaso Mangusta. Very easily mistaken for a Pantera but the three slats on the C pillar and the rims give the story away that its the De Tomaso Mangusta

Thumbs up

ID:281 is a 1958 Packard Hawk

Styled by Duncan McRae, the car's design was unique and memorable
  • wide mouth grille
  • exterior leather arm rest along the side windows,

  • Spare tire carrier on the strong dikky lid, (don't you just love the twin flat-profile exhausts and twin antennae?).


  • Very fancy gold mylar inserts for the flared tailfins.






Although it weighed 3,470 lb. (1.58 tons), it was the fastest production Packard ever built.

The Packard Hawk was powered by
Studebaker's 289 cid (4.7 litre) supercharged V-8.
The engine put out 275 bhp and 451 Newton-metre of torque.

Only 588 units of this car were produced and very few examples survive.
That makes it the most collectible of the 1957-58 Packard-Studebakers.

Yes ram, you are absolutely right. Its the 1958 Packard Hawk.

I do love the twin flat-profile exhausts and the twin antennae as well as the gold mylar inserts for the flared tail fins.

But im confused regarding the Bumper guards?? were they an extra option?
It is indeed a 1966 Dodge Dart GT convertible.
America resisted the idea that compact cars should be small. After all, being nimble and economical and inexpensive did not necessarily mean that they had to be dimunitive in size.

Foam-padded bucket seats and wall-to-wall carpeting was a big deal!

And there was the "man size"-sic Dart's positioning.
There was a strong need for cars to be "roomy and zoomy"!-sic.

How little has changed? Team-BHPians still want cars that are economical and inexpensive, yet nimble handlers that are roomy and zoomy. -- a contradiction of sorts?
