1956 Packard 400 2 DR HT. This incredible Packard was entered into the 2013 Portland Oregon Roadster Show in March of 2013. It earned 1st place in the category of "Best Restored vehicle, 1949 to 1957". There were many cars in that class that it beat out for first place! 41,836 miles on the odometer.

Beautiful frame on restoration two years ago. This beautiful Packard was painted the original factory blue and white paint that came on the car in 1956. The ID plate has paint code MG. Gorgeous blue and white interior. The ID plate has interior code 82. No rips, tears or blemishes on the interior at all. The interior is immaculate. Brand new dashboard with proper correct stitching. The metal portion of the dash is the correct gold color. The trunk was completely redone and is absolutely flawless. The body has no dents and the paint is incredible. The paint has many layers of clear coat for a high gloss shine. Both bumpers and grill were all re-chromed two years ago and the chrome is outstanding! The grill is the correct gold color.

This model 400 is equ
ipped with power steering and power brakes. Original AM radio was completely rebuilt and works well. Original heater with optional passenger under seat heater and blower works well. New heater core just installed under neath the passenger seat.

The original engine is matching numbers to the frame and was rebuilt about 4 years ago.The transmission was also completely rebuilt at the same time.

Engine serial number 5687-3752. All receipts on the engine and transmission rebuild. Kanter Supply supplied the engine re build kit. The 374 cubic inch original engine that this car came with was rebuilt by The Race Shop in Richmond, Virginia. The engine was bored 30 over. Block magnifluxed and boiled. Crank and cam shaft re ground. New pistons, rings, bearings and seals. New lifters, hardened rods, new valve springs and the heads were shaved. Re surfaced flywheel. Carburetor rebuilt. (Daytona carburator kit). Distributor, power steering pump, fuel pump and water pump are all rebuilt. The previous ownwer who did the restoration replaced the oil pump with an upgraded Oldsmobile 442 rebuilt oil pump. Engine has about 700 miles on it. The engine runs real strong with plenty of power. No oil burning and no smoke out the tail pipe at all. The gas tank was boiled and sealed.

Front end suspension rebuilt using rebuild kit from Kanter Supply. Torsion bar suspension all rebuilt with neopreme bushings. Torsion bar electric box replaced with a solid state box and well sealed. The electric torsion bar leveling system works perfect. This model 400 is equipped with the column mounted electric push button transmission box for gear selection.

The transmission was rebuilt by Peter Fitch Ultramatics. The rear end were also rebuilt. Six months ago, I had the master cylinder and power booster rebuilt and new rear shock absorbers installed. The Packard stops excellent with no pulling to the left or right. Wide whitewall radial ties from Diamondback Tire Company are mounted on the stock rims and stock Packard hub caps. Not much mileage on the newer tires. All electrical works perfect. All windows roll up and down well. Original front windshield and rear glass. No delamination anywhere on the glass. The only thing that does not work is the clock.

This car is stunning and there are not vey many of these 400 two door hard top cars around in this type of condition. The 1956 Packards had a much more reliable and better transmission than the 1955 models. Also, the 1956 models had the larger much more powerful 374 cubic inch engine than the 1955 model Packards with their 352 cubic inch engines. If you are looking for a stunning rare antique luxury automobile with class and power, then this is a good addition to any car collectors collection! Offered for $44,000.00.
