    There was a '56 Caribbean Convertible for sale on e-bay a few years ago with a three speed o/d transmission. Car was pristine. Seller said it was a factory spl. order, and that the car was one of one.
    I wonder if production orders for the later Packards were saved? (pre '57 Packards).

      Yes, they are available. They are rather sparse as to information compared with our Studebaker-exclusive Production Orders.

      Here is the P.O. for my 1956 Clipper Super hardtop. You have to know the option code numbers to "decode" these things:

        Very interesting. I wonder who maintains these Packard PO's? The Packard Club?

          No. They are available through The Studebaker National Museum, just like Studebaker P.Os. I am not sure how far back they go, however; the above one is the only one I've ever purchased. BP
