Thread: Green Giant :: 1951 Packard Patrician (Garage entry)

  1. General Information
    Green Giant
    1951
    Packard
    Patrician
    Green
    3 speed ultramatic

    This is my project, currently under restoration. The engine is a straight 8 cylinder with 5.0L compared to our 1.6L and should produce about 157HP compared to our 109.
    Hope to have her back on the road in 2017. The engine and transmission weighs about the same as our cars.

    That is fantastic!

    Have you ever seen the Cold War Motors guys on YouTube? Very fun bunch of kooks in Alberta who pluck vintage cars out of farmers' fields and get them running.

    I love the big old detroit barges. People who know me usually associate me with little economy cars automatically, but my very first car was a classic Detroit barge that was born before I was:

    1964 Pontiac Catalina (US model) 4-d hardtop with the 389.

    I still scan the classic car ads almost weekly, while constantly reminding myself I already have 15 other unfinished projects!
