VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Delivered new in Australia (with RHD) by the Packard importer in Melbourne - Kellow Falkiner (Rolls Royce and Bentley dealers). Largely original, except for paint colour which was yellow with white roof. Restored and repainted dark blue in 1980s. Mechanical overhaul about 10 years ago. Fitted with electric wipers with local Preslite motor etc. Most likely fitted later when oil pump was replaced.

One of the last cars manufactured by Packard in the US, and one of about 12 imported to Australia in 1956 including three Clippers. Don't know of any others still running here. One was converted to a pickup then cannibalised for parts.

Have now discovered that the engine number was not originally assigned by Packard. It was stamped after it arrived in Australia to satisfy the registration authorities. Sorry Owen-Dyneto!

Mechanical overhaul in 1980s, including engine with replacement oil pump, valve seals etc, recored radiator.

Quite original. Planning light cosmetic restoration. Perhaps for wife to drive!
