The Packard company was started in 1899 by the Packard brothers and their partner George Weiss who was a major stock holder for Winton cars. After the complaints of poor quality and reliability fell on deaf ears at Winton which pushed the guys to produce their first "horseless carriage "on November 6th, 1899. Improving throughout the beginning of the turn the century until they closed their doors in 1958. The 50's era Clipper has that iconic bubble style that people fell instantly fell in love with.

Powering this beauty down the road is its original 289 CiD V8 that runs strong & healthy throughout the power band and sounds great out of the dual SS exhaust. It is paired to a smooth shifting 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts firm but with ease. Both the engine & transmission have been recently professionally rebuilt with less than 1000 miles on them since. It has a 10 bolt rear end out back so changing gears for different driving styles could be achieved with ease.

The car is featured in a brilliant teal & white paint color combo that pairs great. The car's paint was professionally redone within the last few years and the quality and condition is very nice. The body is straight & true with body panel gaps that are even and all 4 doors open & close with ease. The chrome bumpers & trim are also in like new condition and show very well. The emblems, light lenses, grill, side trim, & glass are also in great shape. This could be a show winner for you at your next cars & coffee meet. The sweet headlight bezels really set this car apart from the competing Chevy Bel Air. The car sits on a set of pristine wire wheel hubcaps that are wrapped in some new white wall tires that have plenty of life in them. The car is a show winner from bumper to bumper and the people who built the car took their time and it shows.

The interior looks great as well. The cloth & vinyl bench seats in the front & back are comfortable and the color combo matches the teal & white exterior. The classic Packard gauges are in excellent condition and really makes the dash pop with character. The door panels, carpet, & headliner are also in very nice condition.
