1955 Packard Clipper

WE ARE SELLING OUR 1955 PACKARD CLIPPER CONSTELLATION!!!

LOW LOW RESERVE-updated... This Classic will sell... Lower Reserve!!!

I am in this classic over 20K... I will take a loss but need the space...

A TRUE CLASSIC!!

I have 2 videos I will email if interested... I had multiple Buyers ask for a video of the car starting and running... I took 2 videos and will try to upload to ebay but feel free to email and I will shoot them over... very amateur but it shows this classics engine and running capacity.. She starts right up!!

FOUND OUT IN MY MID 40'S WE ARE PREGNANT AGAIN! WIFE SAYS ONE OF THE CLASICS HAS TO GO TO HELP PAY FOR THE NEW ADDITION... IT WAS A STRUGGLE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE 30 FORD OR THE 55 PACKARD...

THIS IS DEFINITELY A LOOKER! SHE WILL TURN HEADS EVERYWHERE YOU GO! LET ME GET INTO THIS 1955 PACKARD AND PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS IS AMAZING CLASSIC...SHE HAS HAD A TON OF LOVE AND FUNDS PUT INTO HER...IF THIS CAR WAS WORTHY OF BARRETT JACKSON'S AUCTION THEN I WOULD SELL IT THERE... MAYBE MY 1930 FORD... BUT NOT OUR PACKARD... THE PAINT IS AWESOME LOOKS AS GOOD IN PERSON AS THE PICS... BUT IT APPEARS TO BE A REPAINT... THE CHROME IS VERY STRONG.. NOT ALOT OF PITTING AND REALLY SHINES UP... I JUST PUT ON BRAND NEW WHITE WHEELS AND THE RIMS ARE CHROME AND LOOK NICE.. THE HUB CAPS NEED TO BE REINSTALLED AND ONE IS MISSING.. NOT REALLY NOTICEABLE BUT I WOULD HAVE IT DONE TO COMPLETE THE LOOK...

I PURCHASED THIS PACKARD FROM CALIFORNIA OVER A YEAR AGO AND HAVE NOT TITLED IT IN UTAH AS IT HAS BEEN IN 3 SHOPS GETTING IT ALL READY TO GO... (I DO HAVE THE TITLE IN HAND) I AM INCLUDING A LIST OF ITEMS THIS CAR HAS HAD WORK DONE WITH RECEIPTS THAT THE PREVIOUS OWNER INCLUDED IN HIS PACKAGE AND ALSO INCLUDE A LIST OF ITEMS I HAVE COMPLETED... IT IS DIFFICULT TO PURCHASE A VEHICLE ONLINE SO I AM ALSO INCLUDING THE COMPANY THAT DID ALOT OF THE WORK FOR ME... THEY ARE LOCATED IN SALT LAKE AND ARE WELL VERSED IN CLASSIC CAR RESTORATIONS... RED LINE RESTORATION (801) 953-0932 (ASK FOR DAVE) EXPLAIN YOU ARE LOOKING TO PURCHASE THE 1955 PACKARD THAT THEY WORKED ON.. HE WENT THROUGH THE CAR FROM HEAD TO TOE AND COMPLETED A GREAT LIST OF MECHANICAL ITEMS THAT I WILL INCLUDE IN THE LIST BELOW...I TOLD HIM BUYERS MIGHT BE CALLING AND HE INVITED THE CALLS!

THE COLOR SCHEME FOR THIS PACKARD IS REALLY REALLY NICE.. THE BLACK AND WHITE COMBO ON THE EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR REALLY POPS! I WOULD GRADE THE PAINT AS A SOLID B+... THERE ARE A COUPLE BLEMISHES HERE AND THER AND A DOUBLE DING ON THE HOOD(DIME SIZE)HOWEVER VERY UNNOTICEABLE... BUT I WANT TO BE AS OPEN AS POSSIBLE... THE INTERIOR IS VERY CUSTOM... VERY NICE MATCHING FROM BLACK TO THE WHITE.. SEATS ARE SOFT AND I AM SURE AT SOME POINT THIS INTERIOR WAS CUSTOMLY COMPLETED... I WAS TOLD BY THE PREVIOUS SELLER HE PUT A GOOD 15k IN THE PREVIOUS RESTORATION...I NEVER CONFIRMED THE NUMBERS BUT I WOULDN'T DISAGREE!! THERE ARE A FEW WORN PATCHES ON THE BACK SEAT HEAD REST AREAS... CEILING IS REALLY NICE AS WELL.. CHROME TRIMON THE CEILING IS IN REALLYGOOD CONDITION... INTERIOR DOOR PANELS ARE REALLY SHARP! CHROME LOOKS NICE AND TRIM HAS HELD UP REALLY NICE... SOME OF THE INSTRUMENTS ON THE PANEL STILL NEED TO BE COMPLETED TO FUNCTION... THIS WAS GOING TO BE NEXT ON THE LIST.. IE. ANTENNA HEAT ETC... I DID HAVE A NEWEMERGENCY BRAKE CABLE INSTALLED... THE INSTRUMENTS ARE THE FINAL TOP OFF OF THE CAR...

I HAD NO INTENTIONS IN SELLING HER SO SOON FACT OF THE MATTER IS WE WERE HEADED TOWARDS RETIREMENT WITH MY YOUNGEST BEING 10 AND ABOUT6 WEEKS AGO HAD A LIFE CHANGING PREGNANCY THAT CHANGED THE COURSE OF OUR FAMILY... I WILL MISS THIS CLASSIC AND AM SURE THIS WILL BE AN AMAZING ADDITION TO ONES COLLECTION... SHE IS STILL A 1955 PACKARD CONSTELLATION AND NOT A 2015 CORVETTE! SHE WILL CONSTANTLY NEED ATTENTION AND WILL NEED TO BE CARED FOR... THAT'S WHAT OUR FAMILY LOVES ABOUT CLASSIC CARS YOU CAN TWEAK AND CLEAN THINGS UP AS YOU GO... MY DAUGHTERS HAVE BEEN RAISED APPRECIATING CLASSIC CARS!! ITS A LOST ART!!!!

I SOLD A CLASSIC A COUPLE YEARS AGO AND THE GENTLEMAN WAS FRUSTRATED THAT IT WASNT EXACTLY WHAT HE THOUGHT IT SHOULD BE... I DO NOT WANT TO SET IMPROPER EXPECTATIONS AND YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO FLY OUT AND TAKE HER FOR A DRIVE... SHE FIRES RIGHT UP AND I HAVE CONFIDENCE THAT MY CLASSIC CAR SHOP HAS PREPARED THIS CAR TO THE BEST OF THEIR ABILITIES... I AM INCLUDING A GREAT LIST OF ITEMS THAT HAVE BEEN COMPLETED AND WILL ALSO INCLUDE A TON OF PICS AND ALSO INCLUDE A COPY OF THE RECEIPTS AS WELL! SHE IS A REAL LOOKER ON THE INSIDE AND OUT...
