Very rare 1955 Packard and Clipper Dealer Salesroom Sales Album For Sale

DESCRIPTION:
If you love 1955 Packards and Clippers, you'll want this in your collection! This is the rare, creme-de-la-creme premier piece of 1955 Packard and Clipper literature. With this incredible Dealer Showroom Album a salesman could dazzle any potential customer interested in purchasing a 1955 Packard or Clipper.

While the few of these that remain today are often missing the exterior zipper case, this one has the case with a working zipper.

The color pages in this album are not comb-bound and this is the way these albums were delivered to dealers– with the color pages loose and easily removed when desired.

Image of the 1955 Patrician in the showroom album shows the early original concept look without ribbed stainless band (added later for actual production).

Samples of interior fabrics and genuine leather swatches are included. But also samples from the very, very rare black Patent Leather and fabric for the Four Hundred are included (yes they actually offered this!).

Page after page of specifications, details, comparisons, etc. are included in the rear of the album. Everything you could want to know about 1955 Packards and Clippers!

Included are
• Kinetic motion demonstration of Torsion-Level suspension and beautiful acetate overlay of Torsion-Level mechanism on conventional coil spring chassis.

• Kinetic motion demonstration of Packard Twin-Ultramatic transmission and power.

• Detail X-ray view of Factory Air Conditioning system.

• Engine X-ray views, paint samples and factory color codes.
• Actual upholstery samples including genuine leather swatches and fabric samples.

• Rotating color scheme and interior views for Caribbean with every factory production color scheme.

• All specifications for Packard and Clipper models
Comparison with other car brands and models.
And more!

CONDITION:
This very rare item is in good condition considering its age and rarity. It is not perfect, however and is sold AS-IS with no returns.

The plastic comb binding has some comb teeth broken but still holds and rotates bound pages.

There appears to be one page possibly missing in the Clipper section, but aside from this, everything from 1955 is intact.

One end of the elastic string in the front inside cover of the zipper case needs to be re-threaded and knotted to anchor it.

The pull-out kinetic operation of Torsion-Level is stuck and needs attention to get it working again.

Again, sold AS-IS with no returns. PayPal is preferred. PM me for price and payment.

Can we get a scan of that book for the archive here? It would be good for future reference since these books are rare as hen's teeth.

Ohhhhh! Scanning... would be a big, big project in itself. Photos are a bit deceiving and make it look smaller (I've got very large hands). This is a big album... long, heavy pages and lots and lots of kinetic (moving) displays with lots of possible visible positions. Lots. That's a ginormous amount of time and labor to do scans of such stuff. Big job!

But in the meantime, you are most welcome to use the photos I have provided here as long as I am credited as source of the photos.

Thanks.

A good place to get oversize scans is Office Depot. Their copy machines will scan up to 11x17 and you can write the scans to a flash drive. Cost about .27 per scan.

Kev,

We already have it here (aside from the case around it)

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