Stock #: 136099 Exterior Color: White Interior Color: White Body Type: Sedan Transmission: 4 Speed Automatic Drivetrain: RWD Engine: 5.3L GM Vortec V8 Title Condition: Clear Vehicle Description When you think the words different and cool what comes to mind? Probably a classy and elegant cruiser like this incredible Packard Clipper! A solid Southern Belle that has no problem charming judges this pristine Packard is the beneficiary of a professional body-off restoration that wrapped in 2008. The pros behind that selective rebuild were none other than Cookeville Tennessee's Mid-Southern Restorations. And presently the reboot presents incredibly well given its 5800 miles of weekend cr...uising. Pure white 2-stage reflects Deluxe chrome trim that's been professionally re-plated. And that bright flash and quality pigment highlights distinctive retro character which reminds us just how cool vintage metal can be! Lift the car's whittled hood and you'll find a 5.3 liter Vortec V8 that utilizes 5.3 liters of displacement to twist buff 9.5 to 1 compression into a spry 290 horsepower and 325 lb./ft. of rich torque. Behind that mill a 4L60E 4-speed makes excellent use of a factory-spec axle. That road-ready pumpkin drives a fully rebuilt suspension which mixes a factory rear-clip with a Heidts Mustang II front-half. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. Solid stops are achieved with the help of a Heidts GM power front disc conversion. And all that proven hardware rolls on Wheel Vintiques wires which spin 225/75R15 BF Goodrich Silvertown Radial whitewalls. The car's warm and welcoming interior looks straight out of boomtown America complete with tight vinyl tasteful fabrics and carefully modified Classic Instruments telemetry. The red and white cockpit is centered on big Deluxe seats. In front of those seats a stainless-trimmed dash centers direct-fit audio above Vintage Air climate control. And in front of the driver a classy steering wheel laps a unique turn signal stalk. Distinctive reliable and lovingly restored this classy Packard is a lot of fun on the street OR at the show!
