This 1956 Packard Patrician would be the last year that Packard would produce cars in the great Packard factory. They would soon move production to South Bend, IN and the 1957-1958 Packards would be Studebaker bodies. The word Patrician is latin for a ruling class in ancient Rome. This car represents the last of the Packard cars produced in the factory, and according to the serial number, this particular car is ONE OF THE LAST EVER to roll off of the assembly line on the last day of production (only 61 cars ahead of the last ever). The car has been loved and cared for all these years. It may have been a dealer display piece for a few years, or owned by a Packard executive, but current owner doesn\'t have any exact history on that. Details/Features: 374ci V8 Engine (4 BBL 290 HP) - ultra-matic transmission (push-button shown in pictures) - factory power steering - factory power brakes - factory power windows - factory power seat - factory power antenna - factory load leveling ride system that works great - factory dual exhaust through the bumper - wide white wall tires - fender skirts - beautiful original upholstery, dash, and steering wheel - clean and tidy engine and trunk compartments The original 374 V8 runs smooth, quiet, and makes great power with only 32,552 miles. The transmission also shifts well at all speeds. Overall, the car runs and drives excellent and is easy to drive. It handles very well and takes little to no effort to steer and stop. The load leveling system can be turned off with a factory switch under the dash, however, it still works as designed with a 7 second delay on leveling. This was the first of its kind in the United States resulting in a much better ride compared to other cars of this time. Pot holes and railroad tracks are handles with ease and comfort. All factory gauges are working. The clock and radio appear to be non-operable at the moment. All power windows are working with the exception of the drivers rear.
