1955 Packard Clipper Constellation VIN: 55676391 Packard, since it's inception, was marketed and known as a luxury automobile. In an effort to expand its sales base, models were introduced to compete on price to expand Packards' reach. The Clipper, named after a type of sailing ship, was produced from 1941-42, 1946-47 and 1953-57. The Clipper lineup was aimed at the middle-price field of American automobiles that included DeSoto, Oldsmobile and Mercury. Upon reintroduction in 1953, the Clipper models were seen as diluting Packard's marketing as a luxury automobile marque. In an effort to combat this, Packard designation was removed from the 1955 Clipper line of cars, but returned in that same year and beyond. The Packard Clipper Constellation was a two-door hardtop automobile produced in model years 1955 and 1956. It was the top priced and optioned car in the Clipper line-up. The 1955 model was a Packard product and sold as part of the Packard Clipper line; for 1956, Clipper split from Packard, becoming its own make. In the summer of 1956, Packard closed the Detroit, Michigan manufacturing plant and the Clipper marque was discontinued. The car presented at auction is a documented 62,000 mile original survivor. The paint and interior are original and there has been no body work performed on this car. This is a nice, dependable driver and runs and drives very well. Everything works including the power windows and the automatic suspension. This is a rare car as only 6600 Constellations were produced in 1955. - 352 cu in V-8 with 4bbl carburetor - 245 Horsepower Powerplant - Automatic transmission - Excellent to drive and enjoy as is or easy restoration *THIS LOT TO BE COLLECTED FROM RICHMOND, VA*
