Suddenly it is 1974 and I am driving a twin of that car to high school! This one seems quite decent with overdrive and electromatic. Will watch this with interest as it is far and away the cheapest car on the auction.

But 57 days remaining. From what I've seen of online auctions, it seems they typically jump up during the last day or two.

So, realistically, what is this car worth? $5-$6K, $8-$9K??? It appears to be pretty complete and in decent shape, but definitely needing body & paint and probably a motor rebuild, plus all the little, minor stuff to bring it up to any kind of decent driver standard. Chris

oh man, there are a few of these i would love to add to my collection. The Zephyr is a beaut too! It will be interesting to watch the prices on these - wish PA was closer to MN.

Besides the Packard and the Zephyr which is nice, my preference would be the Continental but it's been butchered with the wrong engine and its original V12 is gone.

Labors of love they all are! The Hudson pickup truck would be fun to throw money at I think.

Hi Don

Not to divert attention from the '50 Super, but regarding the Lincoln Continental, correctly restored postwar examples still with their V-12 are an easy car to find. They were being restored in great numbers in the 1960's-'80's by LCOC members. Many are now on the market.

Here's a screaming deal on a 1941 Lincoln Continental club coupe advertised on the AACA Forum for $12,850.:

To drive one, you have to do a lot more shifting to keep the rpms up to create much torque relative to a contemporary Packard. Their primary appeal is in their design.
