Curious to know what specific results Packards achieved and how they compared with other players.

PLEASE: This is not the place to discuss the realistic accuracy of such a project--if any.

Just wondered how our guys and gals fared......

I don't have Mobil numbers at the ready but here are some mileage numbers Motor Trend wound up with in their road test of the 352 in a 55 Clipper Custom. Assume the Clipper was stock with the 3.23 axle. Would expect the senior cars to be a bit less because of the greater weight and different 3.54 axle ratio.

EDIT: Found a mileage test for the 55 Patrician. Not sure which magazine did the road test but think it was Motor Trend again.

5560 would have the 4GC and a 3.23 axle.
I can beat their 70mph recording with my 56 Exec at an easy 15 mpg and 17 if i want to try real hard.

I'm guessing Cadillac would beat those numbers by at least 20 percent.
