Hi,

Does someone has a list of all 2-toned and single coloured 1956 Caribbean Coup?s? We have a 1956 Coup? which might has the code HEH or HAH. We can't identify the plate atm.

Best regards

Check out the 56 dealer color and upholstery book.https://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/modules/article/view.article.php?166 It has all the stock color combos as well as some samples of upholstery. Those codes you list are not stock but Caribbeans have been known to have special paint on occasion

HEH is a possibility

Paint code H is Adriatic Blue which is a metallic dark blue and paint code E is Danube Blue which is a non metallic light blue

There is also a separate roster keeper just for the 1955-1956 Caribbeans. Why not contact both?

A few very important points...

? The 1956 showroom color and upholstery book (which I have) won't do you much good if you have a custom-ordered Caribbean-which is what it appears you have.

? The proper place to start is by taking clear photos of the vehicle serial plate (in the driver's door jamb). If I see it, then I can tell you many things.

? Also take photos of the interior and engine compartment... also the chrome fin toppers at the rear top of the fenders.

? I have been keeping my own records on Caribbeans since they were new, so I may have things others won't. I also have access to original order records.

? Also does this Caribbean have a gold screen or chrome screen in the grille?

If I know these things, then I can respond appropriately.

I will take some more pictures when we can pick it up from our shipper. Sadly this car was sitting for 30+ years in a storage unit at a cement factory. The front end of the car is almost gone.

Thank you for your helping me!

Yeah the lime in the cement would not do the car any favors.
