1955 Packard CaribbeanThis Caribbean is mechanically excellent but need full cosmetic restoration. Car number 490 of 500 built in 1955. rare white and green (MAC paint codes) colors
352 dual 4 bbl v8 with correct tagged carbs and batwing air cleaner. Ultramatic transmission. Power windows, power top, power steering and brakes, power seat, power dual antennas and twin spotlights.
The engine runs well, has been subjected to carb, new starter and generator rebuilds, tuneup, timing chain and water pump, as well as rechromed valve covers. Brakes completely rebuilt, top motor and hydraulics rebuilt. Power windows work well, as does the seat, spotlightsand antennas. The torsion ride operates correctly and it has been rewired with a new harness under the hood.
The car is complete, with all trim included. Rust on the lower front fenders has been repaired with steel patches. Otherwise the car is rust free. Some peeling of the paint is noted on the fenders. Original wheels have been refinished in the correct Jade green.
the interior is complete but requires seat repair and carpets. Top will need to be replaced and the car requires new paint. It is a solid car with lots of potential to become a high end restoration with minimal effort.
This is a nice running and driving car ready for the next level of restoration. 570-954-0764 call or text with questions
