This 1953 Packard Clipper is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The Packard company was started in 1899 by the Packard brothers and their partner George Weiss who was a major stock holder for Winton cars. After the complaints of poor quality and reliability fell on deaf ears at Winton which pushed the guys to produce their first “horseless carriage “on November 6th 1899. Improving throughout the beginning of the turn the century until they closed their doors in 1958. The 50’s era Clipper has that iconic bubble style that people fell instantly fell in love with. This one of a kind 53 has took that great styling and put a modern spin on the rest of it. Starting with the one of a kind blue paint that covers the unbelievably smooth paint sheet metal. Giving a stark contrast from that blue is the white top that has the classic silver flake scattered throughout. Naturally attitude with cars is a big thing and a big factor in that is altitude. Well this Packard has you covered no matter what you’re in the mood for. Converted over to a 4 link in the back and bags all the way around the adjustability is literally endless. Roll into the next car show with the bags filled and everyone thinks oh that’s a nice Packer and looks nice. Once you hit the switches releasing all the air and this Clipper sits down giving it a whole new look. If that doesn’t get you enough attention just hit the 4 trumpet train horns and guaranteed everyone will know you have arrived. Open the door on this unique sedan and a fresh interior is staring you right back in the face. The bench seat is super comfortable and looks like it should be in there with the pattern mimicking the outside. The straight 8 under the hood is believed to be original and is one of the smoothest motors that I have come across. With the electrical system being converted over to a more modern 12V system there should be no problem running all the cool modern stuff including that compressor. If you want a cool classic that is sure to get attention from young, old and in between this 53 Clipper is a great candidate. Options on this 1953 Packard Clipper include, Cloth Interior, Wide White Wall Tires and Air Ride Suspension.
