1952 Packard Mayfair

Because of arthritis in my left hand and wrist, I think time to let go the 1952. Having enough trouble keeping my 39 and 40 going. Located in Las Vegas. My mother purchased this vehicle around 1989. Came from long time owners the Pearsons, Fred and Carol Mauck's parents. Believe the car was originally sold in Orange County, but no paperwork. I don't think ever any rust and very little or no body work that I know of? But could be wrong. I believe the interior is original? All good except split in driver seat fabric. Purchased new dismond back radials around 4 years ago and have seen maybe five miles since? The car is up on lifts to prevent flat spots on tires. Last ran about a couple years ago. Ran fine then. The gas tank needs to be boiled out from lack of use. The carburetor was rebuilt several years ago. Engine idled good at that time. Before putting away a few years ago shifted fine. Exhaust pipe is rusted through, but have a complete kit from Kanter. Have California title. If interest how do I attach multiple pictures. Price? 14,500 sound good?

As a Pierson (who spells his name right), maybe I should buy it! I wish I could but my shop was made for six cars and I’ve got seven in it.

Thank you Don. Forgot to mention put in a new rebuilt treadle vac from Kanter a few years ago. Backed it up and forward a few times in driveway and seemed to work ok. I replaced it simply because of some of the stories around about older rebuilt ones.
Last time I checked power antenna and radio worked.
Cell number is 661-492-5551

Have not advertised this anyplace, but if 14,500 is too high, then try 13,500? I really don't know what these are selling for these days? This is the first one I have ever tried selling.

Good luck with your sale. She can be a nice short term project for someone in the market.

Good luck. Wish I had the room

Thank you for the response. Am sure someone will want it. Never tried to sell before, might try bring a trailer? Thoughts anyone. I don't drive it anymore so just taking up space, time to let someone else enjoy.

Hemmings?

The Packard Club newsletter(has a classified ad section in the back, wide distribution, seems to be cheap to list).

Cavaliers, granted a 4-door sedan, aren't going for more than $8k unless in pristine running condition, from what I can gather, and have to be in pretty good running condition to even get that.

This one has been advertised for quite a while:

Packard Super Clipper Panam for Sale on Hemmings.

I would also write "OBO" and see what kind of offers you will get. Don't forget, getting the outside to a nice shine and maybe even hiring a photographer for $50 can pay many dividends in increased interest in your car.

Thank you also, suppose I could spend the time to polish. Really just want it to go to a good home.
