Seems like there is a green wagon in the Citizens Motor Company/Dayton, OH collection with an extended front clip from a Super. Gives the car the longer sleeker appearance discussed. Anyone have a photo?

Auction prices for these special Packards vary significantly. Here's an example of a no reserve auction in Houston, on a day when there were few Packard lovers present.

https://www.mecum.com/lots/HA0419-372696/1950-packard-woody-wagon/

Price includes the boat.

Waiting for a well priced completed car will likely occur before you could complete the restoration, and with a purchase price where you will know the final cost when you take it home.

Back to Owen's comment, better be some emotional attachment.

Disappointing but true.

There are a number of Packard people in the Chicago area. I'd suggest you join the national Packard Automobile Classics club ($48 annual dues-monthly newsletter and quarterly glossy magazine) and then join one of the Illinois or Wisconsin clubs. Most PAC local club annual dues are $20-$40.

The national PAC website:
https://www.packardclub.org/

Local club members can offer ideas and suggestions plus they may have extra parts.

Check out the BigKev project blog on this website. A detailed video log that follows the restoration of a 1954 Clipper sedan.

Good luck

You love them or don't. There's no in between. Purchased upholstery material for the cloth side of the seats for a 56 Caribbean, it arrived in a few days. Purchased simple broadcloth for an earlier Packard and it was months. If the material you want is in stock you'll love them, if not in stock be prepared to wait months.

They have completed several Caribbeans including tops. Have not used them for several years.

Good luck
