1956 Packard 400 For Sale

I'm thinking of selling my 1956 400.

Two door hardtop. Mostly original. Numbers matching car. 36,000 original documented miles. One repaint. Solid car.

Runs and drives.

Power windows, power seat, power steering, power brakes, auto torsion self-leveling, dual power rear antennas, under seat heater, Wonderbar radio, etc. Everything works.

Brand new chrome wire wheels and new wide whitewalls installed this year.

Comes with new disc brake conversion kit and GM overdrive transmission adapter kit.

I have all history of the previous owners. Was originally solid color Persian Aqua and original owner had it two-toned with Dover White on the top and bottom. Was repainted around 2003 in the same colors. Interior is original. Previous owner put on black vinyl made to fit seat covers to protect the original upholstery underneath. He said the originals were in decent shape except for one small loose seam area when these black vinyl covers were installed. I just left the black ones on since they are easy to keep clean. Have copy of original build sheet, original paperwork, original manuals, etc.

Overall nice car that I've really enjoyed for the years that I have owned it. Gets a lot of attention at car shows. Asking $24,950. Not needing to sell it, but just trying to free up some space in my shop for other projects. If interested, feel free to contact me or make an offer. Thanks.

Hi Andrew,

I am interested. Saw it on FB, then went ahead to research about the TL suspension, found this forum, and here it is :)

Do you have more pictures? I am specifically interested in the under-body and all the corrosion-prone spots.
Do you know how much body work was done to in when it was re-painted? Does the TLS work?

Moreover, I assume that you did not get a chance to either upgrade the brakes, or repair the transmission issues, as you planned, correct?

Thanks.

No rust on the car. Bottom of car looks great. Floor pans are pretty much perfect. Only spot with rust is where the exhaust moisture caused some on the side of the the inner metal piece next to it under the car. Car was always garaged. I have owner history and have talked to every family back to when it was new. I've had door panels and rear side panels out looking at inner doors and inner quarter panels. No sign of rust or previous repair. Do not know much about bodywork before painting, however I do have pictures when they stripped it before they painted it. Paint is not perfect, but nice. Everything but front bumper and taillights have been rechromed. They are still very presentable though. Torsion level works just like factory. Every option works. Clock is only thing that doesn't work properly, it works very seldom. Brakes and transmission work as designed, but I don't particularly like the treadle-vac system, and wanted overdrive as far as the transmission goes. I bought the kits several months back, but haven't had time to work on it. Car runs great and drives. Overall it is a pretty nice car.I can send you some more pictures of the car if you would like. My phone number is 706-273-0219. Feel free to call or text if interested. Thanks.

Is your vehicle still for sale?

What is your best price (without any kits for modifying brakes or transmission)? Also do you have the factory original rear antennas?

Thanks.
