If this car is everything that it appears to be, I would be all over it. Love the two tone paint. Just the right amount of doors (2). Great styling. Don't think it will last long.

Here we go again.  Does every old car for sale start in the $20,000's?   I am getting closer to retirement, as I believe these sellers are already there, and I am NOT spending $23,000 on a 56 Packard.   I don't care for the colors on the outside.  But I am a 56 Packard fan owing to their "last of" status.  They did not make many of these Executives.  A late Nance move to push cars.  But few people care.  I looked the car over, then my eyes kept gravitating to that nasty spare rim in the trunk.    We as interested bystanders usually never know what these over priced cars sell for, wish we did, but I think this one will stay with this greedy seller for a long time.  

 

Further up there was a black 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood in nice driver condition for I believe $14,000, already sold.  And since asking price is likely not selling price, I suspect it went for $12,000 or so.    Just so you guys don't think I am off my rocker on these "these cars are over priced" comments.

I really like this car and wish I had room for it in the garage.   However, my eyes got stuck on that trunk full of junk.   My first thought was what is that pile of junk trying to hide regarding the condition of the trunk. I can’t understand the mentality of sellers who take pictures of cars for sale with piles of junk still in or on a car.   It makes me wonder what else their lazy nature is hiding.

I guess you have to pay 34K to get a clean trunk and spare

Yes that's the one. Then there was the 54 Buick Century listed recently in the Buick Buy Sell section that was listed for $9500.  A 54 Buick Century 2 door hardtop is apples to apples comparison to this car. This car (Packard) is nice but every seller is looking around and thinking "if that guy can get that price, my car should be worth..."

Seller is justifiably proud of his beautiful car. Unfortunately, it's a 50's Packard, and he's overestimated its good-but-not-trailer-queen condition and the market value. 

That '54 Century HT was a killer deal, and sold immediately.

On the other hand, I was hot to pick up a '56 Coupe deVille until I discovered a nice one, not needing immediate mechanical attention or eventual expensive cosmetic work to satisfy my need for shiny things,  would set me back a LOT more than I thought such a car was worth.

Gee, I wish I could get a '56 Cadillac coupe in this condition for $23K....

Normally I'd say cars with big wide red stripes on the side weren't my thing, but this car is very pretty...and the stripes really work. I'd love to have this beautiful car.
