      $100,000 would be on the low end I would think. Once again I seem to have lost my winning lottery ticket....now where did it go.....????

        LOL, love it! Yeah Witt, it does look a bit like a tatty old man wearing a beat-up old top hat. The vehicle also looks like something the Addams family or the Munsters would be touring around in. Yeah, a nice late-Packard V8 with an ultramatic would do this old beauty up nicely. LOL, at twenty-five large, this old thing is likely to reside where it is for quite some time. Who knows what the 'bay might bring though?

              Wow, the Don King of Packards.

              I'd rather have this one:

                Looks like maybe a 160 Packard chassis Henney commercial hearse with the top hat grafted on.

                I suspect the seller will be waiting a loooong time for the first bid @ $25K.

                  Creepy indeed.
                  I'd drop a Packard engine into it in a heartbeat.

                    There's a Class 'C' of about the same vintage at a yard along Interstate 5 down near Vader, WA.
                    I'll have to see if I can find a link to it.
                    It is supposed to have an Isuzu diesel installed under it's hood.

                      Finally, an old car where the roof hasn't been chopped down to leave a 3" high windshield, and all anyone does is gripe gripe gripe

                      This car would bring balance to the force at a car show. It makes up for about 70 chop tops.

                      And I still like it. It's unique.
