1951 Packard 200 Special History of the car: My father Cliff Steele
bought it more or less as a junk car and worked on it for 5 years
to get it to the state you will see in the photos. He was a
mechanic in his working life and continued on in retirement to work
on cars and restore them. He took all the paint off the body, did a
complete body repair, removing bumps and scratches, grinning and
finally had it painted professionally. He researched the original
colors of this model and chose the Packard Aqua Blue. He also
researched what the interior of the original looked like and had it
redone; upholstered, seats recovered, new headliner, new floor mats
etc. He did not alter the engine, he repaired it and got it up and
running ( it was entered into many car shows). He replaced some
hoses and parts but essentially the motor is original; as is the
transmission. All working parts on the engine and transmission are
original. What's wrong with the car: the transmission has an oil
leak, the engine needs a tune up currently running rough, one of
the arm rests in the back is currently off the door. The Packard
runs and is in pretty good nick. The car is registered with BC
Collector Plates which means it meets restored to original
standards. What's new on the Packard: It has a new 6 volt battery,
Brakes have a new master cylinder and the wheel cylinders have been
replaced. What's special about this Packard 200 Special: it has
been lovingly restored, the body and paint are excellent. The
upholstery has been done in the original shade of grey, lots of
chrome in excellent shape, no bumps, white wall tires. Stats: 1951
