Packard : "Ask the Man Who Owns One"This 1953 is a true survivor vehicle. It has been in its original state with only slight modifications. The mechanical fuel pump was replaced with an electrical fuel pump. The car starts, runs and drives. It has the original 8cyl flathead engine and has no leaks. The transmission shifts as it should. The original glass shows signs of wear and tear. The drivers window has a crack. The windshield has some minor star blemishes.All windows roll up and down. The vehicle does not have its original paint. It does have all of its chrome pieces and are in fairly good condition. The radio is original but not in working order. Interior has had its seats and headliner replaced a significant number of years ago to its original type of material and is in excellent condition. The vehicle has virtually no rust for its age as undercarriage was undercoated.The rear brakes were all recently rebuilt. The trunk has all of its original matting and shows no signs of rust. Its a daily driver and would only require some cosmetic work if so include. All 4 hubcaps are on the vehicle.76,000 miles listed on the odometerExtra parts: Original Packard 1953 advertisement pamphlet, Packard Parts List booklet & Packard 2013 Catalog, Diner Food Props tray that attached to window.Packard History:The last Packard–the classic American luxury car with the famously enigmatic slogan “Ask the Man Who Owns One”–rolls off the production line at Packard’s plant in Detroit, Michigan on this day in 1956.Mechanical engineer James Ward Packard and his brother, William Dowd Packard, built their first automobile, a buggy-type vehicle with a single cylinder engine, in Warren, Ohio in 1899. The Packard Motor Car Company earned fame early on for a four-cylinder aluminum speedster called the “Gray Wolf,” released in 1904. It became one of the first American racing cars to be available for sale to the general public. With the 1916 release of the Twin Six, with its revolutionary V-12 engine, Packard established itself as the country’s leading luxury-car manufacturer. World War I saw Packard convert to war production earlier than most companies, and the Twin Six was adapted into the Liberty Aircraft engine, by far the most important single output of America’s wartime industry.Packards had large, square bodies that suggested an elegant solidity, and the company was renowned for its hand-finished attention to detail.
