Description

Lot #1123 - This stunning 1950 Packard Victoria convertible has undergone an extensive three-year, nut-and-bolt restoration with a few modern upgrades added along the way. After an excellent 1950 Packard convertible was acquired, the body was removed from the chassis and put on a rotisserie, where it could be perfected. The original chassis has been updated with a new GM subframe from a '96 Impala SS, along with the rear suspension from the Impala also. The complete drivetrain is from the same car, consisting of a fuel-injected LT1 350 V8, 4L60E automatic overdrive transmission and rear axle with disc brakes. Other features include power steering, 4-wheel power disc brakes, Vintage Air and heat, tilt wheel, Dakota digital dash, electric wipers, power windows, 6-way power seat and power top. The original hydraulic system for the power windows has been converted to GM electric along with the power top. The interior has been finished in beautiful beige leather with all dash components restored, along with a new Haartz cloth convertible top. The body on the car is laser-straight and has been painted in GM Victory Red with all new refurbished chrome and stainless. This Packard has clocked just under 2,000 miles since it has been finished and it is ready for the show or the open road. This Packard is out of a private collection.
