I was thinking the dealers were given a 25% margin plus volume incentives. You are right, in this transaction the cash part of the deal probably got the dealer out of the new car and into cash at zero margin and what ever profit there was in the deal was in the resale price of the Packard. $400? In 1958, this probably looked like a great deal with a recession and too much inventory.

There is a 1957 Buick Rivera for sale on the Hemmings auction site. One of the documents included is the original bill of sale. Note the trade was a 1951 Packard engine J234066, a 200 or 200 Deluxe based on the engine#. Here's a good example of valuing trade-ins to get the sale price needed to win an order. Enjoy.

Since this is a 1956, there is a reverse/park relay that sits on the driver's side of the transmission. Small silver pumpkin shaped can with two wires. I don't see that relay in the one-line. Sorry, I may have overlooked it. On more than one occasion I've replaced that reverse/park relay in addition to the pesky brake light switch relay that sits on top of the master cylinder. But with brake lights working, that one is not your problem. Good luck.

It is really unusual to not receive a response to a question on this site. So I'm responding to get the question back at the top of the Recent Forum Topics list. Owen, Howard, Joel, can anyone provide an idea on this one?

Contacted Pat this afternoon and yes, Pat Aldrich is still helping Packard owners. Pat reports that they have "about a year-long waitlist for big jobs".

A welcoming enthusiastic V-8 Packardman. He was always willing to help others. He was never found short promoting packardinfo.com and the Packard marque. He'll be missed.

There are several photos of the Maya's beautiful '56 Carribbean Convertible and many more Caribbean Convertibles and Hardtops on this website in the "Packard Photo Archive". Including all models, there are 261 photos of 1955 and 296 photos of 1956 cars in the Archive. If you have not made the time to browse, enjoy the photos sometime.
