Spotted this attractive 2 door Clipper on Copart.com today. It is a 26th Series Clipper Deluxe Sportster, Model No. 2697. Total production was 3,672 units. The Sportster model was a dressed-up club sedan with narrow vertical chrome strips on the center "B" pillar. This gave it the look of a hardtop at a lower price than the Mayfair hardtop. I myself owned a 1954 Clipper Deluxe Sportster and thought it was a very sharp looking car. I sometimes wish I had kept it and put some more time and money into properly restoring it. The next owner did treat it to a full cosmetic restoration in the original colors of Yosemite Blue over Packard Ivory. The result was quite striking. Below are some pictures of the car when I owned it in the late 1990's. I purchased it from a PAC member in California and it was very clean and virtually rust free.

I hope somebody buys this rare postwar Packard and brings it back to its former glory. Ad does mention flood damage, but the interior looks really clean in the photos.

Interesting, ad says it has no transmission........

Starting bid is $10.5K which seems quite high.
