  • 56 Packard Caribbean

    Did they have reversible seats? I was 16 at the time and I thought I had kept up with every car that came out but I don't remember this.

    As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

    Yes, some did. I seem to recall an aquaintance of mine has a mid-fifties Packard with that option.

        I think only the 56 Caribbean had them. I have a friend with a 55 Caribbean that does not have them, but maybe they were an option.

            The reversible seats were standard equipment on all 1956 Caribbeans (both hardtops and convertibles) and likely available special-order on 400 hardtops if someone insisted. BP
            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                History does repeat itself. Reversible seat inserts were available on 1973 Olds Cutlasses with the swivel bucket option.
                They were cloth on one side; vinyl on the other side. Because they were an insert, one probably wouldn't even be aware they are reversible.[^]
