Description for Packard Caribbean 1956

Few luxury cars of the 1950s had the styling and options of the Packard Caribbean. For many, the final version offered in 1955-1956 is the most desirable of the bunch. Designed by Dick Teague, this 1956 Packard Caribbean convertible is one of only 276 produced in Packard's final year before its takeover by Studebaker. One of the most lavish Packards ever, this Caribbean convertible is powered by Packard's 374/310 HP dual quad V-8 and Twin Ultramatic transmission. Contrary to popular... belief, pushbutton controls were optional on the Caribbean; this is one of very few with a conventional column-mounted shifter. The Caribbean's unique three-color paint scheme of Dover White, Danube Blue and Roman Copper is matched by a white power top and near flawless interior that still includes the reversible front seats. It's not to often that these Caribbeans pop up for sale especially in this condition. With options like power windows, power top, AC, Self-leveling suspension, Power steering, Chrome wire spoke wheels, and more, it's easy to see why these were so far ahead of their time. Don't miss your chance to own this rare beauty. Call today! DOES IT WORK?
