1955 Packard Patrician

After hemming and hawing about it I've decided that it's definitely time to send my 1955 Patrician to its next owner.

The Good

1. 1 year old repaint. Beautiful job, removed all of the dents and dings.
2. Comes with a brand new exhaust system (not installed)
3. Original interior
4. Previously Owned by Fed & Dan Kanter
5. Pertronix ignition installed
6. Electric fuel pump as a backup installed as well
7. Operational torsion level
8. Ultramatic is is good working order
9. Optima battery included

The Bad

1. Engine will need to be rebuilt - it runs, but even with new lifters and rods its ticking.
2. Active oil leak at the oil filter outlet that I'm working to resolve.
3. Due to items 1 & 2 it should be trailered to you

Additional pictures available upon request.

Asking $9,000

Car is in the Salt Lake City area

That is a gorgeous car. The repaint really looks nice. It's definitely tempting!

What causes the ticking in the V8's?

I'll be sure to update the registry.

The ticking is typically caused by a worn oil pump, but this engine also has the olds pump conversion & new lifters and rods.

I believe the engine is worn, given the poor oil pressure at the front of the block. I was planning on rebuilding it but my heart is no longer in it.

A worn oil pump is but one of a couple of possible reasons for low oil pressure. And low oil pressure is not the only possible reason for hydraulic lifter clatter. There's been enough written on this topic to fill a good-sized textbook.

Just wanna make sure it goes to a good home. I've already had someone tell me to just send it to a junk auction (wtf?!) and someone pleading poverty....not exactly the best place to start from when you gotta pour money into these to keep them going lol

It's a VERY nice car, Trevor, and SHOULD go to a good, new home. If I was in the market, I'd make you an offer. The way you have set the vehicle up showing good and bad points portends an honest sale and gives one a comfort zone that the deal is 'straight goods'. Hold out, you'll get a real buyer. Good luck. Chris.

I seem to recall someone taking offense about this car having a weak engine.

If it were a 1956, it would probably be on its way to me now as I'm not daunted by mysterious ticking noises and it is a beautiful car. I have really enjoyed watching your progress on it.

After I rebuilt by 1965 Cadillac Fleetwood's engine, it ticked and sounded just like a lifter but I learned very quickly that it was the dipstick touching the crank. I had replaced the dipstick tube but didn't realize it had to be bent underneath after installation! It was that way for years until it finally broke off on the way to a PAC board meeting in Berkeley, CA. Finally a few years ago I fixed it and quiet ever since.
