Hi

Yes, it is occurring dependent upon segment of years and makes of the collector cars. Pre-war general production cars including some CCCA Full Claasics with factory bodies are flat and/or receding. Custom-bodied cars and the highest-end makes are still reasonably strong.

Its simply the affects of demographic change as those of us most interested in the specific makes and decade of cars ages out.

Project cars are nearly impossible to sell now unless they are extremely cheap. Changing focus of interest and increasing restoration cost make many simply uneconomic when the same make and model may be sourced for a reasonable price ready to enjoy.

The upside is its a buying opportunity to procure a car of your choice for a favorable price to enjoy. Forget the investment malarkey, old cars are an entertainment, treat them as such and take your value accrual in enjoyment.

I'll add my appreciation to Ross and his generous sharing of great knowledge and help for us, many thanks more than you'll ever know.

This thanks goes as well in equal degree to Howard (HH56) for his years of generously sharing his vast depth of knowledge on all aspects of Packards.

And to not be remiss, Owen Dyneto and Big Kev thanks for all you do and share for our enlightenment and to create this wonderful civil community.

I don't know what we would do without you gentlemen!

Please contribute to support this indispensable site!!!

That '53 Clipper is a Sportster, one can tell by the hardtop-style door panel visible in this photo. The stainless steel B-pillar trims aren't visible enough on the outside.

The car has been for sale for years on and off on CL. It might be worth your time to investigate it further in the event it might be bought for a lower price.

RE: Phillips Custom Body Co. was a small series production bodymaker that supplied a number of carmakers. "Custom" in their name was to give them more of any upscale status. They produced only a few true custom bodies for individual customers. Phillips primary claim to fame was their prowess with designing and building convertible coupes and convertible sedans. Demand for both increased in the late 1920's to the point Briggs Body Co. acquired Phillips just to bring that savvy and know-how in-house.
