The Packard company was started in 1899 by the Packard brothers and their partner George Weiss who was a major stock holder for Winton cars. After the complaints of poor quality and reliability fell on deaf ears at Winton which pushed the guys to produce their first “horseless carriage “on November 6th, 1899. Improving throughout the beginning of the turn the century until they closed their doors in 1958. The 50’s era Clipper has that iconic bubble style that people fell instantly fell in love with.

Powering this beauty down the road is its original 289 CiD V8 that runs strong & healthy throughout the power band and sounds great out of the dual SS exhaust. It is paired to a smooth shifting 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts firm but with ease. Both the engine & transmission have been recently professionally rebuilt with less than 1000 miles on them since. It has a 10 bolt rear end out back so changing gears for different driving styles could be achieved with ease.
