Here is a 1953 Packard Clipper that we custom built for a customer back in 2007. We are MidSouthern Restoration in Cookeville. TN. This customer had many cars restored and serviced here and after several years wants to thin down his car collection to make room for more. This car was built with comfort in mind and was built to be driven anywhere. anytime. The ultimate family classic cruiser with all the creature comforts and amenties of a modern car. The customer wanted a four door from the 50's with a new powertrain and suspension for drivability. A local "old car" car lot had this Packard Clipper for sale and it was the canidate for the project. The pictures posted here show the end result six years after it was complete. You can go to our web site www. midsr. com and check out the Clipper and story in 24 pictures start to finish if you look under Packard on the home page. You can see the level of restoration to build this car to better inform you of bidding.

This Packard was a full frame off and the old car had minimal rust to repair. The new 2005 LSII that was scheduled to go into a 2005 SSR Chevrolet truck was bought new on a crate from a dealer who buys left overs off the production line. A new GM 4L60E 4 speed automatic was purchased to compliment the motor and mated together. The front of the chassis received a new modern Mustang II front suspension with power rack and pinion steering and large crossed drilled front rotors for the disc brakes. A Corvette style master cylinder was installed on firewall to handle the braking. The original Packard rear end with a perfect gear ratio was rebuilt and used and has proved to be very worthy. There are drum brakes on the rear. Electric fans were used in conjuction with an NOS revamped Packard radiator to keep the motor cool. The SSR engine cover had to be purchased seperately with a VIN from a SSR Chevy truck. Once the body was smoothed out and all Senior Packard Chrome was found and fit. the body was painted Wimbledon White and reassembled. The chrome parts are from 51. 3. 54 and 55 Packards and much $$$ was spent on rechroming to show status.

The original guages were sent out and proffesionally rebuilt and converted to electronic to match the motor. The original steering column was retained. but shortened to keep the original big wheel out of your face. The original shifter was modified to run the four speed automatic and a trophy shop cut a new indicator showing where the gears are.

Vintage Air provided the two A/C units. There is one in the front and a trunk unit. You stay cool in this car. The rear one works well for hot night cruising when you roll down the electric windows and want to be cool. The power windows work with a touch up or down on the rare NOS Senior series car window cranks. The car radio was custom built to fit the original hole with no modifications. The Packard logo was silk screened on the face. The radio is a MP3 player with AM/FM stereo and a 10 CD changer in the trunk.  The customer picked the old looking red fabric design and white leather type material to create a clean stunning interior. The front and rear seats are more comfortable than most home couches.

The motor is drive by wire with 2006 GTO gas pedal and if the check engine light comes on. the computer can be scanned for problems. This has never occurred and car runs out sweet. There was a custom made Stainless Steel fuel tank fabricated that fits in the original place perfect with a high pressure electric pump inside.

The body underside and inside body shell has had spray liner applied to aid in noise reduction. The car is whisper quiet untill the motor comes to life. A large quiet muffler was installed. The factory "Cats" are still on the car and it records 23 MPG.

This car cost much to build and selling price will be a fraction of that. The odometer shows it was driven about 4050 miles. It placed first at the very first car show entered and has been in magazines from a Nashville TN show. This is a classic family cruiser with awesome power and looks. Fly in drive home.
