1953 Packard Help

Recommended Posts

My friend just bought a 1953 Packard. Not much is known about the car

but is in very good shape for it's age. The car did not come with a

title and has no markings as to the model. The VIN# 2652 9305 .

Can anyone here tell me anything about this car a model, production

etc..

Any help would be great.

Thanks

That is a six-passenger 400 sedan. The engine number should be in the L600000 range which make it a nine-main bearing engine. Your friend bought a very fine automobile. It was top of the line in 1953. Welcome to the Packard forum. There are a lot of knowledgeable people here who can help with most problems.

that can be a nise car, Thats a 6 passanger 400 Sedan, the number you used is body tag or now would be the vin number to use, there is a cowel number above the heater box on the passanger side this has no meaning and the engine serial number will begin with L6 and is a 327 nine main bearing motor. Except for the trim and the motor its the same as the Patrician in 54

Thank you for your help. I did an internet search for a 1953 Packard 400 and found a model called a "400 Patrician" would this be the model my friend has?
