VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Sold July 15 1956 by Evanston Fohrman-Packard Inc to Mr Helmuth STUDE of Baltimore, MD.  Sticker price with options was $5475 but Mr STUDE actually paid $4760 AND got $1735 trade in allowance for a 1953 Packard 300 VIN 2672-7288.
Sept 10, 1984 purchased from Mr STUDE's estate by Gerald GORDON of Baltimore MD
Jan 4 2000 purchased from Mr GORDON by Russell KERR of Melbourne Australia.  Russell had a light rebuild done on the engine and obtained a US-rebuilt TU which works well.  Car was repainted and front suspension, brakes, power steering and TLR rebuilt. 
9 January 2011 purchased by me as a turn key car that has required only normal maintenance.

Modification Detail:
At some stage a period accessory Trico electric vacuum pump to power the windshield wipers was fitted and it is still there.  However, the vacuum setup has been replaced with electrics.
I have fitted a CD player and speakers in a custom made under dash module that can be removed by undoing 2 bolts.
