Description

1955 Packard Caribbean

For 1955, Packard introduced an all new overhead valve V8 to replace their antiquated straight 8 to compete directly with Cadillac. In top spec as found in their most expensive model, the Caribbean, the 352cid version featured Rochester dual 4-barrel carburetors and was rated at an impressive 275hp with 355 ft/lbs of torque, which topped Cadillac's heavier Eldorado by 5hp and 10 ft/lbs. The Caribbean also featured Packard's highly advanced torsion level suspension, which soaks up any road surface, no matter how imperfect, in a relaxed, effortless manner. It wowed the editors at Motor Trend Magazine, who proclaimed that the Packard can "float you through severest of bumps with the greatest of ease." Priced at nearly $6,000, just 500 Caribbean's were built for 1955.

This Caribbean is nicely presented, finished in a tri color paint scheme of White Jade/Zircon/Sapphire Poly with factory correct white and blue two-tone leather interior.

This special California/Arizona car has benefitted from body-up restoration in 2002 and has been driven sparingly ever since. Everything has been maintained in excellent condition. This Packard drives as it should and is loaded with extras such as superbly working torsion bar self-leveling suspension, dual Rochester 4 BBL carbs, power windows, power steering, Easamatic power brakes, power seat and power operated soft top. Also included is the Wonderbar signal seeking radio and dual exhaust. This car also features the optional real chrome wire wheels with wide white wall tires. This Packard would make the new owner proud wherever it is seen, and he/she should enjoy the Packard's performance for many miles and many years to come.
