General Information:

The Four Hundred is something of step up from the Patrician, though with some overlap in trim. The 55th Senior Series models are a major facelift of the 1951-54 shell, but trunk lid and handle are carried-over from previous Series. Vee motif used throughout the car to tout the all-new Packard V8 motor, backed by the new Twin Ultramatic automatic transmission as standard equipment. Trunk handle is carried-over from 1953-54 models. Ribbed stainless side trim (aka - Reynolds Wrap) extends from turn signal area of front fender to courtesy light on rear fender. Fender skirts and lower body moldings are standard. Cathedral-style taillights are an instant classic. All exterior script plates are gold-plated, including the lone 400 script that appears on the lower right corner of the trunk lid. All-new Torsion-Level suspension is technically an option, but likely included on all examples of this model. - BH
