1953 Packard Caribbean Convertible For Sale


The Packard Caribbean was a personal luxury car that was produced from 1953 to 1956. Some of the Packard Caribbean's styling was derived from the Pan American Packard show car of the previous year. These cars were only produced as a convertible from 1953 to 1955, but a hardtop model was added in 1956. The 1953 Caribbean was easily identified because of its full cutout rear wheel housing and side trim. A steel continental kit was standard with these cars. The hood featured a broad, low leaded-in hood scoop. Bodies for the caribbean were modified by Mitchell-Bentley Corporation. The only advertised colors for these cars were polaris blue, gulf green metallic, maroon metallic and sahara sand. History of these cars show that only a handful were special ordered with ivory or black paint. The ultramatic transmission and power windows were options on the first year of these vehicles. There was only 750 1953 Packard Caribbeans made.


1953 Packard Caribbean Convertible. This car has just come out of long term ownership. It is one of only 750 ever made in 1953. From what we can tell this vehicle has its original 327 flathead straight engine with an ultramatic transmission. Believed to be 44,266 original miles. Currently the engine is seized but we have put some lubricant down the cylinders. Was last on the road in 1974. Comes with power assisted brakes and power steering. Soft top frame is there and is all complete. Looks to be the original ivory paint.


From what we see with additional parts and the ones that are installed, the interior is all there. It will need to be completely restored. The dash is all original and has not been cut up. All the gauges are original to the car and it also comes with the original radio. This car comes with power windows and a power front seat. All the glass is there and looks to be in good condition. It does have some rust but overall is a very solid car. Frame on the vehicle is solid. Clean California title. Very rare car that would be a great restoration candidate.
