1955 Packard 1955 Packard CARIBBEAN CONVERTIBLE Only 500 Built Dual Factory Carbs
Hello Packard Fans!!!!!
Up for Auction I have a California 1955 PACKARD CARIBBEAN CONVERTIBLE 1 of 500 Built. This California Original Black plate Car is number 461 of 500. As you may know these cars are very rare this one has never been restored and is in Original condition with only 66,778 Original miles. This is a two owner car the same family has owned this Packard for 40 Years.
This car spent most of its life in a garage indoors in San Francisco California the Original Packard ignition key is in the ignition. The Original paint a three-tone color scheme of White Jade, urquoise, nd Gray Pearl is in good shape for its age. This car was bought from Lee D Butler a Packard dealer here in Northern California in the 50’s by the Original Owner. The car was then sold in 1975 and has been in San Francisco since then. The engine runs good. The Factory 275hp, 52 cubic inch V8 with Factory Dual Quads is still under the hood.
This Convertible is unrestored and Rust free. This car will need complete restoration inside and out. There are some minor dings and a dent on the front bumper. There are two small holes in the truck lid from a removed AAA emblem. The horn rim is broken we have an extra one that goes with this car. An extra wing window assembly goes with this car as well. The power seat and Power top works good.
There is a small hole in the top the size of a penny. The seats are showing a lot of wear, he seams are split where they were stitched. This car has been sitting for many years however it was just driven 90 milesto its new home in Oakdale CAfrom San Francisco recently. The transmission seems to be fine after the car warms up. When the car is cold the Transmission doesn’t engage very well mainly in reverse.
The power windows all work but there is one switch on the 4 way that doesn’t work. The passenger window needs some help when powering it up and down. The chrome has some pitting inside and out. The Rear Power antennas do not work. The brakes work fine. The tire tread looks fine, ut these are old tiresand should be replaced in the near future.
This Packard could very well be one of the last unrestored Convertibles left and to top it off it’s a true Rust Free California car. Please don’t let this one pass you by, ou may regret it.
