By 1956, the final year model, the car was given revised grilled textures, highlight brows, and revised rear treatment.
According to the seller, this final-year Packard model was restored in 2010 receiving a fresh coat of paint in its tri-tone scheme of Dover White, Danube Blue and Roman Copper. It was also given a new white retractable soft top.
Mimicking the exterior, the interior features the same tri-tone color scheme. It’s equipped with a four-way power-operated bench seat, vent windows, a push-button radio, dual power antennas and power windows.
Power comes from a 310-horsepower, dual-carbureted 374cid V8 linked to a push-button Ultramatic automatic transmission.
The odometer shows 50,000 miles, although true chassis mileage is unknown.
