Description

Lot #833 - Packard built just 750 of these distinctive Caribbean convertibles. Design features were taken from Packard's 1952 Pan American show car and featured an enclosed, rear-mounted spare tire, a full-width hood scoop, chrome wire wheels, unique rear fenders, horizontal tail lights and full leather interior upholstery. This 1953 Packard Caribbean is attractively presented in Matador Maroon with maroon and white leather upholstery, a white vinyl top and matching top boot cover. It has had cosmetic and mechanical restoration and looks great on chrome wire wheels with bias-ply tires. It is an attractive example of one of Packard's most famous cars.
