What's curious about denigrating comments about the Contour-style body architecture its by and large in the same idiom as the '49 Ford: a fully-integrated envelope format. GM wouldn't arrive their fully-enveloped body until the 1954 Oldsmobile 88 and Buick Specials and Centurys.

Ford are nicknamed 'shoebox' Fords by the rod and custom community.

The only fault I find with the 51-54 Packards is the grille is too heavy for my taste and the dashboards too plain. However, compared to GM I think the Packards looked great. Chevrolet was the only GM product not over styled, fussy, and garish. As for the 49 Ford I always liked it. It was functional and professional. Originally it was offered to Studebaker who played parsimonious corporate and lost it to Ford.

Interestingly, the top of the listing indicates that it is in Glendale, CA but farther down the tiny description (which says nothing specific about the car) says itís in Minnesota but that it has a Wisconsin title!

Not to mention that the price for the same car is different on Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1955-Packard-400-2-DOOR-HARD-TOP-CLEAN-TITLE/274306935180?hash=item3fddf7a98c:g:CpQAAOSwxeVefQ0m

Lots of red flags here. It's a shame because The Four Hundred really is one of my favorite models.
