I was browsing on this website and was surprised to see a couple of Packards listed. If you are unfamiliar with this website, most of the cars listed here are insurance wrecks. This is what happens to your car if it is totaled, and the title is then surrendered to the insurance company. It is then listed for auction on this website so that the insurer can recover some of the money paid out in the claim. But other stuff does turn up, including collector vehicles. Unfortunately, I did find some vintage cars that were apparently totaled, but these two Packards appear to be pretty nice vehicles.

1953 Cavalier and 1949 23rd Series Club Sedan:

Both look pretty decent, especially the one in Calgary. They may be cars that were donated to a charity, and are being auctioned thru Copart.

I've seen one or two on Copart before. That 1953 Cavalier looks really nice. It wouldn't take too much work to get it cleaned up and running well. Chrome and paint look great, and the interior is serviceable.

The 49 has a surprisingly nice interior. Needs paint and probably the standard maintenance items. But it's a 2 door, which is awesome. It'll be interesting to see how much it goes for.

The 49 is an interesting piece with Electromatic and overdrive, radio, but no heater.

I think the price needs to be divided by 29.

The estimated price means nothing on Copart. What matters is if the vehicle has a reserve or not, which we can't see on that particular vehicle.

If no reserve, then the car will likely sell for very cheap.

Both look like pretty nice finds.

Will be surprised if the 49 sells for more than $3500 though.

'55 400. Needs aesthetic parts put back on, and electrical system sorted.
'55 Clipper Deluxe. Engine is stuck-ish.
