1955 Packard Patrician
For sale is my 1955 Packard Patrician 4 Door Sedan with only 58,000 miles on it, cylinder engine, eighs 4,275 pounds. Transferable registration is clear and in my name. Have owned it for 10 years, ought it with 52K+ miles on it from my father's gas station partner. He had it garaged with his 20+ car collection for 15 years, elieve he was only the 3rd owner at that point. Since purchase I have installed seat belts so I could ride with my kids, nd replaced the exhaust. Everything else on it is the same as when I purchased it. Still runs great, tarts right up and handles smoothly. Perfect car for a restoration project, r to own and drive as is.Car has power windows,power brakes, ower steering, ower antenna, ower leveling system. Pretty modern for a60 year old car.
Additional photos (54 total) are available athttp://s725.photobucket.com/user/smcci77/library/Packard?sort=9&page=1 Also took a video while driving it a while ago. My apologies for the quality of the video, ard to hold a camera in one hand and put the car in gear and drive with the other, ut video does show how the car starts up and rides smoothly. http://youtu.be/UUhZQY8kDSI Car still starts up right away and drives well, ill take another video and upload shortly. Very little rust on car besides floor board and front bumper. Even the tail pipe section under back taillights is in good shape, hat areais known to be a problem spot but not on this car. Car came witha self leveling suspension which was a big deal in 1955. Previous owner installed a lever under the steering wheel to control leveling manually instead of original automated system. Helps to lower and raisetheback of the car if you have more or less passengers for a smoother ride.
What needs to be fixedto drive right away? For menothingas I'm used to driving it as is and it starts up right away and drives well,but I'd suggest replacing the brake booster if nothing else. Saw the part in Hemmings for $250a little while ago. Worth adding for better braking as you get used to the car.
If you are buying the car and planning to do afull restoration, nd this is a perfect car for that, ou'll need a new vinyl dash, eadliner, ight window pane (line crack as seen in pix), ew carpet, ew antenna, ix power window on driver side (believe it is missing one link), nags at 80% up, utcloses 100% with a little help past that one spot, atch seat or new upholstery as driver seat has a worn area,fix the gear selector (car shifts in and out of gears fine, elector on dash doesn't line up withgear. Mechanic believes a piece broke off in selector, ut I never bothered to have it taken apart and adjusted.), ix windshield wiper fluid system (works on vacuum power, revious owner disconnected),new paint job and tires.
