This 1953 Packard Clipper club sedan is finished in blue over gray cloth upholstery and is powered by a 288ci straight-eight paired with a three-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes wheel covers, an AM radio, a driver-side mirror, TPI-Tech Instruments gauges, a 12-volt electrical system, and a chrome grille, exterior trim, and bumpers. The car was repainted under prior ownership, and work performed since then includes adjusting the carburetor, lubricating the chassis, and replacing the coolant-temperature sensor.
The cabin features bench seats trimmed in striped gray cloth and blue vinyl along with color-coordinated door panels and gray carpeting. Additional appointments include a blue-painted dash, a push-button AM radio, and a lockable glove compartment. An engine-turned dashboard fascia houses gauges from TPI-Tech Instruments consisting of a 140-mph speedometer, an 8k-rpm tachometer, and a combination gauge. The digital odometer shows under one mile, and total chassis mileage is unknown. The speedometer is inoperative.
The car was repainted blue under prior ownership, and Deluxe-style trim has been added atop the quarter panels. Additional details include a swan hood ornament, a driver-side mirror, a wrap-around rear window, and chrome bumpers with overriders. The chrome grille has an imperfection below the passenger-side headlamp, and blemishes are also noted on the side trim. The lower-able glass windows in both doors are cracked, and the windshield is scratched. Painted 15" steel wheels wear Packard covers and are mounted with Kumho front and Mastercraft rear whitewall tires. Braking is provided by drums at all four corners. The brakes were overhauled under prior ownership and the chassis was lubricated in preparation for the sale.
The 288ci flathead straight-eight features a single downdraft carburetor and "Thunderbolt" markings. The electrical system has been converted to a 12-volt setup. The engine was resealed under prior ownership, and the carburetor was adjusted and the coolant-temperature sensor was replaced in preparation for the sale. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission, which was resealed under prior ownership. Corrosion and damage are visible on underbody components, which can be viewed in the photo gallery.
