Description:

1955 Packard 400 2 door hardtop

1955 PACKARD 400 2 DOOR HARDTOP. EQUIPPED WITH A 374 CU. IN. V-8 ENGINE, 4 BBL CARBUERATOR, AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, POWER STEERING, POWER BRAKES, POWER SEAT, WONDERBAR RADIO, REAR SPEAKER, VARIABLE SPEED WIPER, DUAL OUTSIDE MIRRORS, POWER ANTENNA, AND MORE.

THIS VEHICLE WAS PURCHASED FROM THE HAROLD LEMAY COLLECTION IN TACOMAH WASHINGTON. PRIOR TO HIS DEATH, LEMAY WAS REPORTED TO HAVE THE LARGEST COLLECTION IN THE WORLD. IF YOU GOOGLE HAROLD LEMAY, AND GO TO HIS WEBSITE AND TYPE IN 1955 PACKARD, YOU WILL SEE THIS PARTICULAR CAR.

I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE WITH THE INTENTION OF DOING A COMPLETE RESTORATION, BUT, HAVE HAD A MAJOR ILLNESS STEP IN THE WAY. I NEED TO SELL IT NOW SO THAT MY FAMILY DOES NOT HAVE TO DEAL WITH IT LATER.

THE BODY OF THE CAR IS EXCEPTIONAL. THE FLOORS AND TRUNK ARE EXTREMELY SOLID. THERE IS ONLY ONE SMALL HOLE ABOUT THE SIZE OF A 50 CENT PIECE BEHIND THE DRIVERS SEAT. THERE IS SOME PERFORATION IN THE PASSENGERS ROCKER PANEL, BUT WOULD BE A VERY EASY FIX. THE BODY IS ALSO VERY STRAIGHT, WITH ONLY A FEW SMALL DENTS TO BE ADDRESSED.

CHROME IS SHINY, AND STRAIGHT. STAINLESS TRIM IS ALL THERE, AND IN GENERALLY GOOD CONDITION, WITH ONLY THE STANDARD AMOUNT OF DINGS. POTMETAL IS OK, WITH SOME MINOR PITTING.

GLASS IS EXCELLENT OVERALL, WITH ONLY ONE CHIP IN THE WINDSHIELD ON THE PASSENGER’S SIDE, AND LIGHT FOGGING AROUND THE WING WINDOW.

INTERIOR IS GOOD DRIVER QUALITY. SEATS ARE IN OK CONDITION AND SIT WELL. HEADLINER IS DECENT, ONE HOLE ABOVE THE DRIVERS SUNVISOR (NOT A MOUSE HOLE, IT LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE PUSHED UP TOO HARD ON THE SUNVISOR), DOOR PANELS ARE IN OK CONDITION. THE INSTRUMENT PANEL IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, AND IS ONE OF THE REASONS I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS VEHICLE.

ALL GAUGES WORK PROPERLY. RADIO DOES NOT TURN ON, AND I HAVE NOT INVESTIGATED IT. ALL OF THE COURTESY LIGHTS FUNCTION PROPERLY, AS DO THE HEADLIGHTS AND TAIL LIGHTS. THE TAIL LIGHTS ARE ANOTHER REASON I LOVE THIS CAR, THEY ARE STUNNING AFTER DARK!!! POWER SEAT FUNCTIONS PROPERLY AS WELL.

ENGINE RUNS WELL, THANKS TO A PERTRONIX IGNITION CONVERSION, AND TUNE UP. THE CARB WAS JUST REBUILT AS WELL. RADIATOR HAS BEEN FLUSHED, AND RESOLDERED. POWER STEERING PUMP WAS REBUILT TO SPECS. A NEW WATER PUMP HAS ALSO JUST BEEN INSTALLED. THE GAS TANK WAS REPLACED WITH A NEW ONE, AND A NEW FUEL SENDING UNIT INSTALLED. THE ENTIRE BRAKE SYSTEM WAS REDONE, AND IT WEARS A BRAND NEW SET OF 235/75/15 WHITEWALL TIRES. EXHAUST IS NEW FROM FRONT TO BACK, AND SOUND ABSOLUTELY AWESOME COMING THROUGH TRUE DUAL EXHAUST THROUGH THE BUMPER. THE WORK LISTED HERE RAN ABOUT $2,950 TO COMPLETE. I WANTED TO START WITH THE MECHANICAL FIRST, THEN GO ON TO THE BODY NEXT.

I HAVE RECEIPTS FOR THE CAR ALONG WITH A TON OF OTHER DOCUMENTATION GOING ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE 1960’S. THERE IS A PARTS MANUAL, SERVICE MANUAL, OWNERS MANUAL, POPULAR SCIENCE FROM 1955 HIGHLIGHTING THIS CAR, TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETINS AND MUCH MORE. ALL OF THESE ITEMS ARE INCLUDED WITH THE SALE AS WELL.

I AM LISTING THIS CAR ON A NO RESERVE 7 DAY AUCTION. I WILL REQUIRE A $500.00 PAYPAL DEPOSIT AT AUCTIONS END, AND THE BALANCE DUE WITHIN 5 BUSINESS DAYS. ONCE THE CAR IS PAID FOR, IT CAN STAY HERE (INSIDE) FOR UP TO 30 DAYS OR SO UNTIL PICKUP IS COMPLETE. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CANCEL BIDS BY NO, LOW, OR NEGATIVE FEEDBACK BIDDERS. PLEASE, BEFORE BIDDING TALK TO YOUR WIFE, HUSBAND, GIRLFRIEND, BANKER, BROTHE, SISTER, MINISTER OR WHOMEVER. NOTHING IS MORE FRUSTRATING THAN HAVING THE AUCTION GO TO THE END AND NEVER HEARING FROM THE WINNING BIDDER. YOU CAN SEE BY MY FEEDBACK AND TIME ON EBAY THAT I AM AN HONEST SELLER. I WELCOME ANYONE TO COME SEE THE CAR PRIOR TO AUCTIONS END.

PLEASE CALL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE AT 320-260-0502. I DO NOT CHECK EMAILS VERY OFTEN, SO CALLS ARE BEST. THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!! BOB
