This remarkable 1955 Packard Caribbean with the very rare color or
Rose Quartz has been pampered, adored and treated like part of the
family for the past 31yrs of ownership. This car was found by the
current owner at a dealership in Hudsonville Michigan where it was
a nice driver with a solid body but was in need of some TLC. The
owner fell in love with it instantly and his wife and him adopted
this Packard and brought it to his office where it sat next to his
Ferrari 308 and began to get ready for its full restoration.
This vehicle was treated to an open checkbook for the past 3
decades and during the extensive 2+ years of the restoration it was
outfitted with OEM parts and top shelf labor and knowledge of the
vehicle. This car was restored to it factory setup with the only
modification being the convertible boot cover that was restored
with authentic leather in the Rose Quartz color instead of the
vinyl white setup. On Friday July 27th 1990 the car had its coming
out party where the owners invited some of their dearest friends
and everyone that had a hand in restoring this car at their home in
Ada, Michigan where it was shown off like a newborn child.
The list is long and the receipts are very extensive that showcase
the transformation from how it was purchased to how it sits today.
The vehicle has always been stored properly in a climate controlled
environment with the vehicle slightly raised off the ground on a
two post lift. The car was routinely started up and ran to proper
temperature on a weekly basis.
This vehicle is ready for any major car competition, weekend drives
or tucked in your private collection to enjoy and admire. Vehicle
comes with extensive records and receipts, factory brochure,
factory owner's manual (very rare), two sets of keys and clean
Michigan title. Vehicles like this are highly desirable and very
rarely seen on the open market.
