1953 Packard 300 Convertible
327 cu in Flat 8
We are happy to have this very nice 53 Packard in our inventory. You don't see these that often. Though not a Caribbean, it is the next best model. There are only a few subtle differences between the two. The 327cu in flathead 8 engine runs great. The owner has told us that this car is one of the best driving cars in his collection. We found it to be extremely smooth running and a pleasure to drive.
The interior is very nice. The seats were recently redone, but the door panels look original as well as the dash. The dash and interior as a whole, is in very good condition. The gauges are working and everything looks as though it may have been repaired at some point. The glove box is very unique, pulling out like a drawer instead of the usual drop down door. There is a crack in the driver's side window. The owner has purchased a new glass for it which is in the box in the trunk. You can see by the photos, that the frame is very solid. There is no reason to be concerned about rust on this undercarriage. The owner had the wire wheels powder coated in the same color as the car. There are a few paint flaws throughout the car. They were touched up, but not professionally.
