  1. I have just listed the 54 Convertible on ebay with 24 photos, it's item number 130853471578.
  2. power seat too. almost missed the switch down on the corner of the seat, not where I expected it to be :-)
  3. it has power windows, honestly didn't check to see if power seats but can do that in the morning. I believe it was originally ivory. my number is 540-631-5852. can call pretty much anytime like 8am to 11pm, that's my cell number and I'm an old retired guy :-) still have to sleep now and then...

  4. not used to forums, I posted the following to the AACA forum this morning. I received a reply suggesting I post it to the Packard forum so here goes... I'm new to this forum and looking to sell my 1954 Packard 8 Convertible. the car has 70k original miles on it. top is good but it's black instead of the original dark green. good boot, good interior, minimal rust in the trunk, overall solid car. I was told the engine was rebuilt and then it was driven very few miles before being put in storage. the owner told me while the engine was being rebuilt they fell in love with and bought a new Satellite convertible, the reason they put the Packard in storage. they still have that Satellite and it's a beauty! I have a receipt from 1967 for inspection ($1) and installation of the new convertible top ($47.50) at that time it had 600 miles less on it than it has now. all the trim is there- the skirts, hood ornament, wheelcovers, chrome trim. if I were going to keep it, I would just get it painted, do tires and brakes, polish up the chrome as much as it will polish, and drive the car. the original dash is very nice still, the car has been stored inside for over 40 years. it was last registered in 1968. I don't know what they're really bringing as so few of them come up for sale, there were only 863 of this model built. this may well be a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone :-) I even have the original factory workshop manual and the glove box owner's manual. I am the 3rd owner, the previous owner bought the car in 1958. the oil and coolant were recently changed out and the car fired up off a gas can- sounded very good and was yard driven. will entertain serious offers- car is located in Virginia. Best Regards
  5. I was told that the previous owner had the engine rebuilt, and while it was in the shop they ended up buying a brand new Satellite convertible. this ended up being her everyday driver and the Packard was driven into the garage and parked. I have a receipt for installation of a new top ($47.50) and inspection ($1.00) and at that time, 1967, it had 600 less miles than it shows now. has been recently fired up off a gas can and ran very nicely. was even yard driven, although the brakes need to be done. oil and coolant were changed before it was started. the title I bought it on was issued in 1958.
  6. I'm fairly computer illiterate, will try to add some photos here...all trim you don't see on the car is there and included, even have an original factory workshop manual and the original glove box owner's book- also fender skirts.
  7. I'm new to this forum and looking to sell my 1954 Packard 8 Convertible. not really sure what it's worth so will entertain offers for a while. the car has 70k original miles on it. top is good but it's black instead of the original dark green. good boot, good interior, overall solid car. I was told the engine was rebuilt and then it was driven very few miles before being put in storage. all the trim is there- the skirts, hood ornament, wheelcovers, chrome trim. if I were going to keep it, I would just get it painted, do tires and brakes (planning to do the brakes this week and have it driveable) polish up the chrome as much as it will polish, and drive the car. the original dash is very nice still, the car has been stored inside for over 40 years. would be happy to provide photos to anyone who is interested. I see asking prices on this model all the way up to $135k beautifully restored on the internet. don't know what they're really bringing as so few of them come up for sale. there were only 863 of this model built. this may well be a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone :-) Best Regards
