Re: 1955 or 56 Executive. Need Direction.

Thanks for posting. The Executive was produced only in 1956, starting around March (it replaced the Clipper Custom in the lineup). You can also post your information at www.packardinfo.com.

Re: How many 56 Executive 2 doors left?

There were 1,031 1956 Executive 2-door hardtops built. I have been collecting information on them, and all 1955-56 V-8s, since 1982, and I record 13 as listed in excellent condition, 12 as very good, 18 as good, 14 as fair and 10 as poor. 8 are confirmed as being scrapped.

Re: Historic Packard Bridge Collapses Onto EGB

It looks the hole in the roof was on the north side, which would make it on the Arte Express side. A few years ago there was a lady who was a higher-up in the Arte Express business (general manager or some such).
