A two-tone '50s cruiser is always going to attract attention, but when it's also something rare and exclusive, like this 1954 Packard Clipper, then you've got a car that's always going to be memorable, too.
The Packard name is all about providing quality and luxury. That's why people take good care of them, and that's how you get a sedan like this that's quite complete over six decades later. The two-tone teal blue and white is part of an older respray, which in turn, is part of a long history of proper care. You can especially see the attention this Clipper received in the brightwork. There's a quality shine on the diving swan hood ornament, factory-style wheel covers, and full length trim that even wraps around the rear to frame the taillights. Plus, the intricate bumper and grille integration up front was a big part of this Packard's elegance, so it's great to have it looking mirror-like today.
The interior keeps a classic style, but there have also been the right investments for those who like to drive their classics. For example, the seats have been reupholstered later in life. They kept a classic style and nice piping, but now it also has that fresher feeling that's quite inviting. Good door panels and complete carpeting cap off this well-done interior. You'll sit behind the stylized factory wheel (with its jewelry-like horn ring), and gaze at the bright triple-pod factory gauges. The dash presentation is exceptionally original, right down to the AM radio that's still on display. But your real driving tunes come from an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input neatly installed under the dash. That way you can have the best in modern music in your very vintage ride.
The model body tag has this as a Clipper Super, and so this one carries the larger 327 cubic-inch eight-cylinder motor for these upper-market Clippers. The engine bay has that honest, original, and driven appearance, which is the style people love to see today. Plus, the strong running nature reaffirms its good care. They upgrade the electrics to a 12-volt system, which is great for all-around better ownership experience. And with an automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes, you get the easy cruising quality you don't find in too many other early '50s classics.
There were less than 6,300 Packard Clipper Super four-door sedans built this year. So 65+ years later you can imagine the kind of rarity this two-tone classic offers. Call today!!!
