As long as it's done properly I'm confident it would raise the value. None came from the factory like that and doing your own conversion is difficult and expensive. V8 manuals are extremely rare (about 3% of total production, all Clippers) so they have some level of desirability.


OK, so no manual transmission Caribbeans. (I'm still learning ) Makes sense since they were to be the utmost in luxury.

Always nice to post the link: 55 Caribbean

Wow, V8, torsion level, 1955, 3 speed overdrive! That is my Packard dream car.

Will be interested in what the experts say about this car's authenticity. Also, I'm curious, is a 3 speed overdrive a negative or a positive on a Caribbean as far as value?

1955 Patrician 0001 is for sale. A project for someone brave... I have seen parts cars in better shape. Too bad it was not sold earlier or stored better.

Can't see it unless you are a member of the group.

The '56 Executive is really really nice, but do these bring that kind of price? Not being critical, just trying to learn.

Does look pretty good, at least from what can be seen from the lousy pictures.

That limo looks nice. A great car to fairly quickly get back on the road.


It sure does look great. What a shame that the engine and trans is gone.

The '41 120? I'll never understand how people can expect to sell a car for good money (especially what he's asking) with such terrible pictures. Turn the phone sideways and capture the whole car.


Thought the exact same thing as soon as I clicked on that one!
