  • A Packard for Bob Palma (several pics)

    I just got back from attending the RIchmond AACA car show that took place today at Richmond International Raceway. While I have only been going several years, it appears that more of the cars are from the '60's and '70's (as might be expected).

    However, there was a 1955 Packard Clipper Constellation there that looked to be well done (though it had a 12 volt battery). Here are some pics:











    I will do a separate posting on the other cars and will link to my Webshots album.

      Beautiful! That high contrast two-tone is quite striking.
      If it's really for BP, it needs just one more thing under the hood...

        I thought that most high line cars were originally 12 volt by 1955.

          There is another nice 1955 Constellation currently on eBay.

              The two-toning of that model has always struck a note with me. I like this combo as well as turquoise and black![] I had a Turquoise and Black 57 Silver Hawk for a time. Real eye-grabber colors.[8D]

              No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                  Yeah, Guido: All your V8 Packards were 12 volt. Didn't you know that? Anyways, Very nice car, from what the photos show. Packards of this year sure beat Cadillac, when it came to styling. Thanks for posting it.

                      That is a gorgeous car. Does anybody remember seeing '56 Chevys in yellow and black two-tone, too?
