This 1956 Packard Patrician is one of 3,775 produced for the model year and was purchased by the current owner’s late husband in 2009. An ensuing refurbishment is said to have included a repaint in green, reupholstering the green interior, rebuilding the carburetor for the 374ci V8, and overhauling the dual-range Ultramatic transmission. Additional equipment includes body-color steel wheels, whitewall tires, an egg-crate front grille, a left-side spotlight, chrome bumpers, rear fender skirts, footrests for the rear passengers, and a push-button radio. This Patrician is offered on dealer consignment with a clean California title in the current owner’s name.

Bubbling paint and corrosion are noted by the selling dealer.
