The magnificent 1955PackardCaribbean Convertible featured here is finished in the stunning color combination of Jade White over Gray Pearl separated by a Turquoise belt line with a matching Turquoise and white interior with white power folding convertible top. This particular example was the 220th out of only 500 produced for 1955. The Caribbean was purchased new in Nebraska by a local physician as a birthday present for his wife and was later displayed in the showroom by the selling dealer for 25 years! In the early 2000s the Packard was under the care of another meticulous owner who oversaw an extensive 18-month restoration by the specialists at SELCO Restorations in Richmond, Texas. The restoration addressed all components and aspects of the vehicle including the mechanical and electrical systems while completely renewing the Packards cosmetics. In all over 1,500 man hours were invested bringing the Caribbean back to like new condition. Since restoration the Packard has remained exclusively in collector-level ownership including discerning collector Richard Kughn, former President of the Lionel Trains! Today the Packard presents in spectacular condition while having only accrued 64,891 miles from new while the numbers matching 352ci Dual Quad V8 engine still performs like it was new!

In 1955 Packard took its flagship model, the Caribbean, to new heights. A completely new design by Richard Teague succeeded in making the car look modern. Packards first series of V8 engines were now standard on all models, with the most powerful being the 352ci V8 equipped with dual-quad Rochester carburetors. This combination produced 275 horsepower and was only offered in the Caribbean. Underneath the new modern body was Packards unique torsion bar suspension which was a standard feature and made the model one of the best riding cars of 1955. Costing $5,932 when new, the equivalent of roughly $57,000 today, the Caribbean Convertible (style number 5588) was Packards most expensive offering for 1955. The combination of style, performance, ride quality and low production numbers (only 500 examples were produced for 1955) makes examples highly sought after by collectors today.
