1955 Packard Clipper similar to Chevy?
Them's fightin' words to a Packard man, but, hey, that's what the seller says:
I think I can understand the seller's feedback rating, having read the hyperbole associated with this car's sale.
Depending on what part of the listing you read, it's worth either $16,000 or $20,000 "if perfect." Yeah, right, for the cheapest 1955 Packard they made. It's an early car, too; the 33rd DeLuxe 4-door made, by serial number. With all thr troubles they had in early in 1955 production...and before multiple recalls...
Many DeLuxes did not have Torsion-Level suspension, so this may be a conventional-suspension car, although there's no way to tell from this listing, either visually or through the -ahem- "description." (Torsion-level suspension was optional at extra cost on 1955 Clipper Supers and DeLuxes; standard equipment on 1955 Clipper Customs.)
Driver quality with soft brakes and interior trim missing, too. The Driver Quality is amended later in the listing to say the car is capable of being driven onto a carrier! Is that a new definiftion of Driver Quality? <GGG>
Check out the "crack" in the windshield, which implies one singular crack. Look above the steering wheel in the drivers line of sight! Yep; that's some "crack" alright!
And you Germans, Swedes, and Aussies; where are you on this '50s Americana bargain? <GGG>
'Gotta love e-bay. BP
