Re: 1947 Packard Super Clipper full frame engine trans for sale

I'm enjoying this build so far, it's a lot of fun and certainly a challenge. I know I've upset a few people and I'm sorry about that but in the end I will have a solid sweet ride my dad can enjoy and I can hand down to my kids someday. And I'm hoping someone will take the engine frame assembly so it doesn't go to waste. I would be happy to post pictures of my progress if anyone is interested. I'm not taking a 70 year old body and just throwing it on a 50 year old frame. The frame and engine assembly I am using is a 2009, it doesn't have all the power and crazy horsepower most people would want for a project like this, it's a simple 4.6 Ford motor, plenty of power with a smooth ride and electronic fuel injection. You guys called the Lincoln town car a meat wagon or something like that, ever driven one? It's like driving on a cloud; and that's what I want for my elderly father. I would prefer to sell the frame and motor as a whole but I'm willing to part out if no one wants the whole thing.

Well we decided to go for the restomod because my father is 74 now, Jack was his favorite actor and still is. I wanted to get this packard for him to drive but it's much to hard to drive and quite honestly doesn't drive all that smooth. A Lincoln chassis fits right under it, has air suspension, power steering, power disk brakes all the way around. We want it as a driver, a comfortable driver at that. The body and everything inside will be original, just a different power plant and frame. Sticking with the packard wire wheel set and white walls. I'm sorry you don't agree with what we want to do with it. If you know of anyone that wants the frame, motor, transmission and everything else bolted to the frame feel free to private message me. Thanks again.

Found Jacks 47 Packard Clipper, the one that's in the Preston's commercial. Found it in Drums, PA. After Jack passed away, his brother John went ahead and sold most of his vehicles that were left on the east coast. Sold his clipper to a friend and it sat in his yard for two years until we bought it a couple months ago. Sweeeet ride. We have the body off and the frame out, planning on dropping the body on a 2005 Lincoln town car frame. If anyone's wants to see Jack Palances packard I would be happy to share pictures!
