VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
My first driveable Packard, I found this car through a Hemmings ad in 1987, but with a lot of regret in the years since, after discovering many substandard repairs made by the preceding owner. Engine previously replaced with same from a '56 Four Hundred, due to catastrophic oil-related failure of connecting rod. Presently in long-term storage due to too many other projects.
