Vehicle Story

This 1956 Packard Caribbean convertible is one of 276 produced for the model year and features a model-specific tri-tone paint scheme in Dover White, Danube Blue, and Roman Copper. Under the hood, a 374ci twin-carbureted V8 has been paired with a push-button automatic transmission which is described as mechanically sound by the seller who has owned the vehicle for six years. Finished with BFGoodrich wide whitewall tires, power antennas, and a reversible cloth and vinyl interior in tri-tone hues, this final-year Caribbean is now offered with a convertible top boot, a service manual, an owner’s manual, and a clean Wisconsin title in the seller’s name.

The Caribbean had a four-year model run, beginning in 1953, as a personal luxury car in two-door hardtop and convertible form. Aesthetic changes were applied in the years that followed, and in 1955 the singlehood scoop was split into two units. The final year of the model brought revised grille textures, headlight brows, and rear treatment. This Caribbean convertible from the final year was restored around 2010 and received a fresh coat of paint in a tri-tone scheme of Dover White, Danube Blue, and Roman Copper along with a replacement white retractable soft top. Brightwork is noted to be in good condition for the bumpers, grille, moldings, side view mirrors, and dual exhaust outlets incorporated into the corners of the rear bumper.

Chrome-finished 15” wire wheels with Packard-branded center caps are wrapped in BFGoodrich wide whitewall tires. The suspension is self-leveling, and handling is further assisted by power steering and power four-wheel drum brakes.

The interior bears a tri-tone color scheme that mirrors the paintwork, fitted with a four-way power-operated bench seat that is topped by a reversible cushion. Upholstery is finished in cloth on one side and leather on the other, and brown carpeting brings a darker tone to the footwells. Amenities include vent windows, a push-button radio, dual power antennas, and power windows. The trunk is carpeted and contains a spare tire in a recessed area of the floor.

Instrumentation is set within a textured bezel and includes a 120-mph speedometer, an analog clock, and accompanying gauges for fuel level, voltage, oil pressure, and coolant temperature. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads 50k miles, although true mileage on the chassis is unknown.

The dual-carbureted 374ci V8 was rated at 310 horsepower and received a replacement fuel tank in 2015 as well as an oil change in 2021. Power is fed to the rear wheels via a push-button Ultramatic automatic transmission and a 3.31-ratio rear end.

The sale includes a snap-on white vinyl convertible top boot, a factory service manual, and an owner’s manual.
