1953 Packard Clipper 4-door Sedan … $11,600-obo

This car combines two of the finest traits that are usually not found together in classic cars --- low mileage and original condition --- no matter how hard you try, once they're gone, they're gone for good.

I am the third owner of this 64-year-old car. We are selling it only because we are short of space. It has a straight-eight 288cid motor and a 6 volt electric system. There is also a newly painted engine and engine bay with Packard gray paint that is period correct.
