1956 Packard CARIBBEAN for sale
After reviewing my photos of the restoration and jogging my aging memory. I wanted to add the following: This is an AMBITIOUS project. which is why I'm selling it (my ambition is waning). All the glass is out of the car. the interior is out of the car. the dash is out of the car. there are parts all over my garage in boxes. bags. etc. The top was replaced during the restoration due to the original Hypalon material holding in water. The original top padding is in a bag to use as a pattern for replacement. There is no exhaust or carpet. I have the double 4 barrel carburetor manifold (one hold down hole has been repaired - not noticeable from the top. I have the batwing top of the air cleaner and 2 "pots" for the bottom of the batwing which will have to be altered to fit. They are not the original parts. I have two original Rochester carbs - rebuilt. Some of the linkage will have to be made - not too difficult. just threaded rod. The car came with one carb - had been converted as many of them were to save gas. I have an original dash top with holes for ac - will have to be repadded and reattached to the dash. The door panels are done as original - very nice. The door tops. vent window frames. bumpers. bumperettes. headlight hoods and grille top are rechromed. Side light trim and some of the fender skirt trim is NOS. The chrome alone is worth the reserve price on the car. Some of the stainless will have to be buffed. Brake shoes. cylinders and shoes are new. drums have been turned - system is dry. Booster. master cylinder and switch will have to be installed - obviously. no brakes now. Tires are still holding air after 30 years. but obviously can't be used. I have quite a few parts I've accumulated over the years which will be included - I won't know exactly what until I dig everything out. It'll take some time to sort through everything - I've had a 1955 Caribbean convertible for 46 years (with similar parts) - that one I'm keeping. I'm sure I've forgotten something. I've restored several other cars since I've had this one. If you have any specific questions. I'll do my best to answer them promptly and honestly. I want the car to go to someone who will finish my original dream. The car would be a real showpiece when finished.
