Dads 56 (Sean), for including this '55 Clipper Deluxe Touring Sedan in the Registry.

Although it's in a wrecking yard, there appears to be some salvageable parts still on it before it goes to rhe crusher.
again for saving part/s (pun intended) of Packard history.

I would for sure pick that original power antenna and mounting grommet off the car. Even if it doesn't work they can be easily repaired. To lower the antenna without power, there is a plug on the side with beeswax on it. Scrape off the wax then loosen the plug a couple turns. Then you can gently collapse the antenna. These are a few hundred $$ on eBay. You usually need a special wrench to get that nut off without tearing it up, though. Or use a thick rag with pliers. The electrical connections are plugs behind the antenna switch.

I'm sure some of the other stuff could find a home if you pick it up at scrap yard prices.

No problem Mal. Can’t hurt to add the poor souls to the registry me thinks
HPH, manual antenna on this car. Not too many items that may work for my car. Not a torsion level car. I did score the ignition switch, headlight switch & liter,also the clock, though it’s not a match to mine. And the trunk light, it even works still. Unsure if I can make it back for some of the matching trim pieces

What is the interior color and overall condition on that car? I'm assuming disgusting and rotted out? If it just happens to be the same scheme as mine (green) and in decent shape, I would be very interested.

If you happen to swing by again, I would grab the ignition switch, trunk lock, and glovebox lock. And antenna still, as the manual ones are actually very rare and impossible to repair AFAIK. Unless it's too bent to collapse.
