1956 Packard Caribbean Description:

Up for sale is a basket case from a 1956 Packard Caribbean Coupe basket case.

The car was not savabl, so i was able to buy the parts which are necessary to rebuild under the help of a 400 donor car the caribbean again.

Packard did in These times the same.The outside of a caribbean coupe is except for the rear trim and the Hood a regular 400 coupe.

To compete with the Cadillac Eldorado they created the Caribbean which were build in 1953-55 as convertibles only and in 1956 as Convertible and Coupe.

Anybody of the large Packard Family of today knopws, that only 263 Units of the coupe were build.

Under These 263 Units one car wears a single colour ( paintcode H / " Adriatic Blue ") only..this is the restover of it.

So available are the following :


2 front Fender, which have been rust on top of the front lights, minor at the lower edge as usual..really minor


the complete Firewall /Dashboard unit of the car.Dashboard is complete including the pushbutton transselector, all gauges and instruments.

I have pictured most of the items, as any part will not be able to Show on Pictures are limited..Picture Show the condition of all the parts as an example.

I guess agood 400 parts car isnt too hard to find and will cost around 5 k usd...or when you add up These parts and the costs of a donor car, you will ending with half of the Money for a restorable caribbean Hardtop in restorable condition.. and you have to wait ..maybe for ever..until one appears..

I am collecting packards for decades and know what i ahve and what is needed to build such a car.
