Captivity? If it's on Ebay, then the cage door must be open[:0]
Very handsome vehicle......
I wonder how much of the $85000 BIN is the 'investment' part of the seller???

Not much, Jeff;

Depending on what they started with, it could darn well use up 85 Gs getting it to this point. [}:)] I wish he had installed the rear fender shields for a couple of the photos. I see them in the trunk, and would hope they would install and fit as they should!
GORGEOUS car indeed. [:p]
There was a black 1956 Caribbean convertible at the Warren OH Packard Centennial in 1999, but I didn't look it over carefully enough to see if it was this car. I don't think it was. [:I] BP

Two thumbs UP for this beauty.
While sitting in the Antarctic in 1956 I recall seeing a magazine article with similar eye appealing ride. Thought was then and again today, that my posterior would fit nicely.
What a classic.

I see this car is listed in the current Hemmings (June 06)... says, "$60K Resto" and "ASKING $74,900"...

I'd sure be leery of paying that kind of money for a car with that much discrepancy between descriptions... wonder what the facts really are...?

That is truely an awesome looking Packard. I wish he needed a trunk lock cloisonne emblem for it as I would sell him a gorgeous one for for about $1500.00. Any one else can have it for about $150.00. Sorry, no key. jimmijim

Wow,66900 and still 5 days to go.
Watched some of the Barret-Jackson auction the other night,makes this car seem cheap in comparison,and Id rather have it than ANY muscle car.

Wow! That's some magnificent car. I can't afford such luxury but I certainly appreciate it. I agree with a previous poster that I'd rather have that Packard than any of those brand X cars selling for similar money.

It was bid to $72,600 but did not make reserve. As to the restoration costs, I once sold a 56 Chrysler for a fellow on ebay that had spent 67K with a shop for a trailer queen restoration.

I think it may have sold JP, the auction ended with about four days left.

It appears that it sold off eBay, probably for more than $72,600, and the seller ended the auction early due to the off-eBay sale. I am a believer in letting an auction run once it is started, but I can see where some feel that a bird in the hand, etc.

This is unbelieveable. I was going through some older car books and happened upon a copy of Car Trader magazine, November 2000. On page 6, this car, with the same pictures, is offered for $48,000. Description says: 1956 PACKARD CARIBBEAN CONVERTIBLE., Owned by one local family since 1961. rare and beautiful with push-button transmission, self-leveling suspinsion, power top, power windows, signal-seeking radio-all working correctly. 67,224 miles. $48,000.

Matthew - That doesn't seem very far out of line or "unbelieveable." $48K in 2000, with inflation comes to $53.3K in 2005. By the time that you add insurance and storage, you have $65K. There may have also been transportation and improvements made. I don't think that that equates to $73K being out of line now.

I was thinking like 2000 was just a little while ago. Even for me, it seems like it wsa just last month, not hardly 6 years. [:o)]
