About

The last true Packard before they merged with *shudder* Studebaker in 1957, and began turning out horrendous looking automobiles that they also called Packards. They only survived another two years before closing forever.

The '400' and Carribean were the most luxurious automobiles of the '50's. Complete with power windows, seats and hydraulic tosion-ride suspensions, these cars were bigger than most SUV's today.

A terror at the pump. This gas hog came with a big block v8 and factory dual-quad (that's TWO four-barrel carbs) giving it a thristy 9 miles to the gallon!

The special ordered one-tone paint scheme, dual quad and three speed transmision make it one of the rarest 1956 Packards in the U.S.

The National Packard Museum in Dayton, Ohio made me an offer I couldnt refuse. A good deal considering gas alone would put me in the poorhouse now.
