1954 Packard Caribbean
There is an adage that they are only original once. There is a tightness to this car that cannot be explained. Those who have owned survivor cars know what I am talking about. I have seen many of these cars resurrected from rust buckets. That isn’t this car. A quiet effortless cruiser would be the best description. It is from my understanding likely one of the most original rust free caribbeans left. I’ve driven this car down the freeway many times and it is amazing. In fact I drove it down to the Keels and Wheels show every time I showed it there. Incidentally the car won when it showed there.
One of 400 built. Extremely low miles. Rebuilt ultramatic transmission. Original 359 straight 8 engine. Upgraded powergen 6 volt generator. Completely functional and driveable.
New clothe soft top. The convertible top mechanism was professionally repainted when the top was redone. It is a power top and functions well.
100% European leather interior with wool carpets. No expense spared on this interior.
The paint is as it was when I purchased the car 10 years ago. It is driver level and it looks to be the second paint job of this car.
The radio worked when I purchased it but stopped along the way. It could be something extremely simple but it was not on my priority list.
The chrome is original and presentable but could easily be sent off for plating if the next owner desires it.
Why am I selling it? I am liquidating all of my classic cars. It is time for someone else to take the wheel.
I encourage anyone serious about this car to come out and see it for yourself.
