That was the famous motto about Packard's quality, and the person who gets all that attention could now be you with this affordable 1953 Packard Clipper. After all, car crowds love to see these premium classic straight-eight sedans.
This ultra-exclusive marque holds so much prestige that even the affordable Clippers were nearing Cadillac levels of luxury. That's why this sedan looks so good. The gray looks period-correct, but it also has a nice luster from a clearcoat respray later in life. These Clippers had plenty of chrome, and this one is complete, including the stylized multi-piece grille/bumper setup, Packard swan hood ornament, and two-piece trim that gives this an elegant profile. This one feels original and bright, right down to the Packard factory hubcaps.
The interior is pure premium Packard appeal with plenty of room across the two textured fabric benches. The style is quite original, with a hint of fun added by the floor shifter. The true Packard luxury is felt the moment you sit behind the stylized factory wheel with its jewelry-like horn ring, and then you gaze at the bright triple-pod factory gauges. Even the AM radio is on display, and it has fashionable Art Deco-like presentation.
Under the hood is a correct 327 cubic-inch straight-eight motor. The engine bay has that honest and original appearance, which is the style people love to see. But beyond the classic feelings, you can see the right upgrades to keep this a fine cruiser today, including 12-volt system with alternator. That means it fires up with little encouragement needed and maintains Packard's signature smoothness. This is a luxury car, so it won't hot rod off the line. But the three-speed manual transmission gives you full control to command a huge amount of torque at any speed. This gives it a balance of nice performance with plenty of comfortable classic American luxury.
This is the whitewall cruising classic that will turn heads simply because so few of them are out there on the road anymore. Who knew this kind of premium vintage could be so affordable? Call today!!!
