I saw a 55 Packard earlier this week but it was under a car cover.

It had the same dual exhaust coming out the bumpers but had dual rear antennas on the upper fins. The cover was custom made because there were stitched openings around each hole.

Can't wait to see it without the car cover.

We had a Packard in this color last year. I found it so interesting that I researched it a little. Packard called it "Sardonyx". That's a word I had never heard of, so I looked that up. (Yes, at my age I have too much time on my hands.) It turns out that a sardonyx is a type of agate. Here, if you, too, have time on your hands, are the images related to it:

sardonyx colors - Google Search

 

It seems that all of Packard's colors for this year were patterned after precious and semi-precious stones. Here, for the fun of it, is the '55 Packard chip chart from Auto Color Library:

I think what holds this car back is it is not running and the seller gives no indication as to why!  Also the cryptic photos does not add to the presentation either.

Presentation is part of the process of selling. 

The more honest and forthcoming a Seller appears, the better his chances of selling the car and getting the price he wants.  That is, of course, assuming Seller really wants to sell and is not just "testing the waters."
