Howdy folks! I'm back again with another car. This one is probably the rarest I've owned. It was ordered by a Packard Dealer, William Slonaker, in late 1954 when the new models dropped. He ordered with quite a few rare options. Full leather seats, front and rear speakers, front and rear heat, rear foot rests, to name a few. It was in kindly poor shape when I picked it up. It was barely running, and extremely dirty. I got it home and did a tune up on it. New points, condenser, rotor, cap, coil, spark plugs, and wires. It runs much better now. It doesn't really need it but I plan on rebuilding the engine myself over the winter. I'll keep everyone updated and I hope you all enjoy the photos!

Deven - nice ride. The 55'56 Four Hundred is one of my favorite Packard models. And the red/white combo looks so sharp. Can't wait to see how this one cleans up.
