The 1951 Deluxe Club Sedan 200 Series Packard was a 7-year feat for Lee Harris finishing in early 2014. The main issues were the major rust in both the rear quarter panels and floor. While the majority of the work was done by himself, rust removal and upholstery were done by a professional.
The purpose of this car is mainly the lazy Sunday drives. Although there have been a few shows that this vehicle has participated in. Both competitive and friendly. The vibrant red colour is named ‘Packard Matadoe Maroon’ and is painted in Protec acrylic paint. Lee’s best DIY tip would be “Firstly count the cost and do some research before taking on such a big task and be willing to try anything yourself”.
Lee’s vehicle was featured in the 2018 Auto West Calendar.
