Hi All,

I bought this 1956 Packard Patrician from Bring A Trailer.https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1956-packard-patrician-3/

Unfortunately, "Bring A Trailer" is really "Find A Sucker"- and I am that sucker. The seller did not divulge all the issues with this car, but more my fault for not being more thorough.

*The car drives really rough
*Car needs a jump after 3 days of sitting
*Gas Gauge doesn't work
*Rear door locks don't lock
*Rear Windows will get stuck once rolled down
*The emblem was glued on but in the California sun, it has already melted and spread.

The first thing I am doing this week is fixing the duct for the air as the cabin fills with carbon monoxide when driving.

Second, I am replacing all the fluids, filters, spark plugs, and battery. Standard maintenance and also hoping that fixes the rough running intermittent starting and possibly some electrical issues from inadequate power.

Third, I am adding seatbelts for my kids.

Wish me luck.
