This 1953 Packard is top-of-the-line Patrician. It has a soft, warm interior.
The Speedometer reads 5073, matching the time I installed the new Dash Instruments. The new ZZ5 engine has about 600 to 700 miles on it. It has a soft, comfortable ride and has dual Flowmaster exhaust, mid range sound.
The front end is aligned, the speedometer is calibrated. Water temperature runs a consistent 200 degrees and will not overheat. The Vintage A/C & Heater works perfectly.
The doors and window glass were all removed and all the mechanicals were bead blasted and reinstalled with new greased leather washers. The car is rust free and undercoated as were all Packard Patrician's at the factory in the fifties.
I have owned the car for 37 years, but at 85 I must downsize.
