Ask the man who owns one, can apply to a lot of cars but the advertising tagline originated with Packard. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is very pleased to present this 1954 Packard Clipper Super Deluxe Panama Hardtop.This car was delivered to the original owner on May 19, 1954 from Mordan and Johnson Packard in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania.
Dressed in Chariot Red (code G) over Packard Ivory (code T) enhances an alreadyrare cars presence as only 1,470 models were made for 1954. This examples paint and trim are in good order but there are some blemishes visible upon a closer look and seen as some crazing in the lacquer paint due to age. The glass panels are crackfree and clear while the lights are in overall good shape but the taillights show some patina.
Those taillights were distinctive in shape and located on the top of the rear fender, separating the Super from the Deluxe Clipper. Other distinctions were that Super Clippers had chrome trim the full length of the car with Clipper in block letters on the trunk, a further upgraded interior, and more standard equipment. This car rolls on stately white whitewall tires that surround factory wheel covers and are in good shape. All of the body panels are solid and straight, the bumpers are in great condition and the engine bay is tidy.
In that engine bay is a 327 CID inline eightcylinder engine borrowed from Packards limousines. It has nine main bearings and a twobarrel carburetor and it attached to an Ultramatic twospeed automatic transmission.
Inside, the car features a red leather and black nylon cloth interior (code 327). The bench seats are in decent condition but there are blemishes on the leather portion of the front seat. The black carpet is in good condition, with some age while the headliner and red metal instrument panel are all in good order. while the 63 year old radio still works the vacuum wipers are slow to operate and the fuel gauge is inoperable. The blower fan functions but is stuck on the "On" position. The red, twospoke steering wheel and door panels are in very good shape. The mirror glass and shifter look good. Finishing off the cars interior is the original factory AM radio.
Competition to this Packard in 1954 included DeSoto Firedome Club Coupe, Mercurys Monterey Custom Coupe with TouchOMatic and Oldsmobiles 88 Holiday Coupe.
Documentation includes a copy of the cars ownership timeline from April 1954 until 2008; original owners manual; original copy of the Packard Owners Service Policy; two color photos of the car, one taken in October 1999, plus miscellaneous other documents related to the vehicle.
