Some Packards I found on FB Marketplace this morning. All recent postings:

Moving this one to the top of today's list. 1955 400 Hardtop. Beautiful combination of an original car with some restoration. Original 76K miles with much recent mechanical work. Looks absolutely stunning in Paint Scheme MP (White Jade over Citrine). One respray in original colors. Just love this one and think it is one of the prettiest '55 400's I have seen in quite a while. Original interior shows some wear on the front seats, but so what. Only $16k. Located in Iowa:

1947 Clipper Six Sedan. Ad states that this car was originally a taxi, which would make it very rare. rough, but appears restorable. New Jersey:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1186052005764391/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A7cbb3291-3972-4d7f-9975-373f4a8abec7

Henney Junior Combination Hearse/Ambulance. Ad states it is a '52, but it is either a '53 or '54. Rough, with hood badly bent, but rest of body does not look too bad. Only $2,500. South Carolina:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1732074744197449/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A7cbb3291-3972-4d7f-9975-373f4a8abec7

Another Henney Junior from the same poster as above. Appears to be the better of the two cars. Has stick shift. That alone has to be worth something:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/833646638653533/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A7cbb3291-3972-4d7f-9975-373f4a8abec7

1953 Clipper Deluxe Sedan. Rough exterior, but complete and restorable. Body not too bad. New Hampshire:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/485936947190522/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A7cbb3291-3972-4d7f-9975-373f4a8abec7

1930 Model 733 Sedan. Advertised as a parts car, but possibly an ambitious restoration. Asking $7,500. From Newtown, CT:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1638485290264527/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A7cbb3291-3972-4d7f-9975-373f4a8abec7

1955 Clipper Deluxe Sedan. Restore or parts. I'm thinking parts, but you might feel differently. Knoxville, TN. Gee, I was just there for a Packard:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/430469073087397/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A7cbb3291-3972-4d7f-9975-373f4a8abec7

1938 Six Opera Coupe. Beautifully restored car, appears to need very little. I love this one. Had a Packard just like this many years ago and still regret selling it. Tempted to go get this one myself. Think asking price of $18K is reasonable, considering I paid almost $10K for mine back in 1985. New York:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1834857783643910/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A7cbb3291-3972-4d7f-9975-373f4a8abec7

1955 Caribbean. Looks like an older resto in solid black. Think it is a nice car and probably worth the $50K asking price. Michigan:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/3778221749172806/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A7cbb3291-3972-4d7f-9975-373f4a8abec7

1954 Clipper Super Sedan. Abandoned restoration project, looks complete and body appears relatively straight and rust free. But a long, long way to go on this one. New Jersey:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1061228812090829/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A7cbb3291-3972-4d7f-9975-373f4a8abec7

1938 120 Coupe. Stripped out hulk, but has good sheet metal, including floors. Buy this one and you could redo my '39 Six Convertible with all Packard metal and have a super car:

Interesting that one of the Henney Juniors has the rounded upper windshield corners of 1951-1952 and there were a few built in 1952 but it has the 1953 grille with fender wrap-arounds.

That 1955 Clipper Deluxe is the least optioned one I have seen, with a factory radio delete and also no backing lamps.

It has a heater core and oil filter though and appears to have an automatic trans, which are the other 3 options pretty much always seen on one of these.

1955 400. Black/white original paint, overall in nice condition. Some bubbling. Seller states engine should be pulled for new seals and gaskets, but runs well. Interior reupholstered with the rare Orchid pattern cloth. Very attractive. Another car came up with this same combo sometime last year.... Not sure if this is the same one? Located in WA, $18,500

Almost certain it's the same one. Wonder how much that fabric is from SMS...

Probably $200 a yard. Minimum 4 yards, though probably more like 5 since it's on the door panels too. Plus the black gloss leather/vinyl. I would guess around $2000+ in materials alone. Add $6,0000-8,000 for the upholstery shop.

Edit - Looking at it again, it'll probably be more like 6-7 yards of the orchid cloth. My seats took 8 yards total: 4 of cloth and 4 of vinyl, plus I had to add some blue vinyl for the back. That's not including all the door cards which added another 4 yards of vinyl at least.

I talked to the seller and it is NOT the same one from 3 months ago even though it's also a 1955 400 with the exact same exterior and rare interior and in similar condition and at a similar price (18k vs. 15k) and also in Washington state. What a coincidence.

Here's a couple overpriced listings to offset some of the "is the market crashing?" listings from earlier.

Really rusty 56 Patrician sank in the ground. Interior is okayish (seller says "very good" ). But it is a factory AC car. $8500
https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/7706863322702129/

Exec HT in typical rainy climate condition with a fair amount of interior mold. $7500

Three recent FB Marketplace listings in my area (Northeast):

1950 Super Deluxe Convertible Victoria. Fully restored and looks sharp in Turquoise Blue (Scheme T). Has Ultramatic Drive and the rare folding rear windscreen option. Much recent mechanical work and car is road ready. Seller asking $45K. Ad just posted today (6/19) Stratford, CT:

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/434529096069333/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Ae741ed2f-c84d-45ea-b746-786429718ebc

1948 Deluxe Eight Sedan. Solid unrestored, but needs cosmetics and interior work. Ad indicate that car runs. Upstate NY. Asking $4K.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/399239416455438/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Ae741ed2f-c84d-45ea-b746-786429718ebc

1947 Super Clipper Sedan. Decent looking original car. Runs and drives. Think this could be a good driver with very little effort. Looks very presentable in photos, though original interior is a bit worn in spots. Upstate NY Asking $10K.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1002780524594112/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Ae741ed2f-c84d-45ea-b746-786429718ebc
