Default Pristine Packard Patrician

A friend of mine asked me to photograph one of his cars for a magazine feature (which was published). By the mid-Fifties the Packard was beginning to fade into oblivion. This 1955 Patrician showed some of the proud heritage of this manufacturer.

Beautiful photo of that Packard, Walter. I love these cars with their big block V8's (352 + 374 cubes). In my town there is a mid -50's Packard Caribbean convertible...triple tone paint job. A lovely car.

In my part of the country they liked them for carrying illegal beverages as they had tons of room and heavy suspension.

Those big Packards would also have a good turn of speed for their moonshine 'purposes'...lol

The early Lincolns were liked as well.
