After reading the article, my conclusion is Pat Foster should stick to the subject he knows best: American Motors. It was going to take much more than a minor shuffling of model names and trim in early 1956 to stop the inevitable. The perpetual drumbeat of bad business news regarding S-P was more than enough to warn off any new car buyer that feared being stuck with an orphan. Hardcore loyalist would take the chance, just not enough of them or others.

Steve

PS: Anyone who think Packard could have survived the 1930's without the Junior series need only to study Pierce-Arrow history to see the results of decisions to never compromise their standards to please market conditions.

Hi

Welcome! Glad to see this '55 Clipper finally has an appreciative owner to put it back in shape. I recall seeing the CL listing at various times.

A project blog in that section is a good idea, helps us follow your progress and address questions you have. Also, the search works well as many of the problems you will encounter have been discussed and solutions presented.

Anyway, welcome to the Packard world, please keep us apprised of your progress. Good luck!

Steve

A '53 Clipper club sedan, new chrome plated parts might be worth what asking price alone:

Fine job! There are a lot of 22nd-23rd Series Packards out there that could benefit from your upholstery expertise.

Although we now tend to consider lwb models such as this car as all having been used in livery or private limousine operations, there still were larger families that purchase seven passenger sedans for private use. They could specify the color be something other than the dark hues in order for their cars not to be confused with the other applications.
