This is a very solid original arizona car its whole life. The previous owner had owned the car for the past 20 plus years. In 2015 he had the car completely restored at a restoration shop in town here. He had put close to $50k in the car restoring it, which is very easy to do these days. The car truly turned out spectacular. Before restoring the car it was on the cover of hemming's classic car magazine in 2008 but we do not have a copy of the magazine. It is truly an excellent example of a '50 packard with only 65k original miles on it. These cars are getting harder and harder to find especially in this kind of condition!! Condition rating: category 2: 80-89 points "fine an original car with very low miles that has been meticulously maintained since new; or an older professional restoration that has seen very limited use since restoration. Very close inspection by an expert may detect almost insignificant flaws or wear, but to most enthusiasts the car would look perfect. This car was completely taken apart and restored the correct way in 2015 by a professional restoration shop. It has a stunning paint finish that was hand rubbed to be smooth as glass. The body is straight as an arrow and everything fits excellent. It started out as a clean original az car so it is completely solid and rust free. All of the chrome and trim was redone and looks amazing. It has all new rubbers through out. The glass is all original and in very nice condition. The drivers windshield does have a rub mark from old wiper blades. In some of my pictures the color looks washed out but it looks like the brighter, richer tan color in person. They did a very high quality job using high quality material. The dash is very bright and clean. It also looks to be all original and even has its original steering wheel that looks great but has a couple small hairline cracks. Inside the trunk has been completely redone also and looks better then new with its correct spare tire. Mechanically: the car runs and drives excellent. It has its original 288ci straight 8 engine that runs like a top. This car needs absolutely nothing mechanically and is ready to drive and enjoy. It has an all new wiring harness in it that was replaced due to age. The suspension is nice and tight and the brakes work great. This car is ready to drive and enjoy!!
