Hi

Finally became "The Man Who Owns One", a drivable Packard at last! George did me an immense favor selling me a great car at a favorable price. There is no better group of old car collectors/enthusiasts than Packard people.

You've seen it before when it was for sale. Not to make anyone regretful, but you truly missed a good one! I thought I'd start a Project Blog even though it needs little. Now, the fun begins!

Steve

Thanks Guscha and Garrett

Though, not sure the Clipper is as 'busty' as Marilyn, the front bumper guards have already elicited comments about '50's cars being 'well endowed'.

Have you noticed the added stainless rocker moldings? They look like those on a '55 Clipper, both ends are finished. I like the way they look, think Packard should have started adding those to all upper series models before the '54 Patrician and '55 line.

The red top imparts a look more like a Clipper Sportster. Hmmm, a four door Sportster...there's a thought...

Steve

Drove the '53 Clipper to a local car show I first attended in 1967. A long-time friend parked his '52 Studebaker Commander next to me. We were doing our best to represent a Studebaker-Packard dealer lot. It's always a good time.

Now, if the all-original maroon '31 REO Royale sedan shown at the first time they held this meet would just reappear. Never have encountered it anywhere since.
