1953 Packard Clipper 4-door Sedan

This car combines two of the most important traits that are not often found together in one classic car. low mileage and original condition.   No matter how hard you try. once those two things are gone. they're gone for good.

I am the third owner of this 64-year-old car.   We are selling it only because we are short of space.   It has a straight-eight 288cid motor and a 6 volt electric system.   There is also a newly painted engine and engine bay with Packard gray paint that is period correct.   This car wonderfully takes you back to a very different USA.

This is a very big car with an unbelievable amount of room inside.   The seats are super wide and long. nearly enough room to play basketball in the back seat.   The Packard Clipper was a product of what car makers deemed the public would want in a motor car for the year 1953.   In spite of stiff competition from Cadillac and others. 1953 turned out to be the highest sales year for Packard in their history.   Packard was very confident in their advertising slogan for 1953 ~~ "Ask the man who owns one. "    Our Packard Clipper is one of only a few excellent ones left from that year.
