VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
Saw this car locally in Connecticut. Waited many years for 56 Packard in this shape.

Needed a transmission rebuild which I had done here in Connecticut by a old timer that does all my cars.

I may be the 4th owner not sure car was in New Jersey before coming to Connecticut.

Needs the interior done which I already contacted SMS, headliner is nice. Needs also exhaust work and new tires.

Also the trim has dings in it may jut be able to get a good stainless guy on that.

I will be at Hershey, have guy who just makes door sills, and he is making a set for me for a 1956 Packard 4 hardtop.
