The Caribbean by Packard was one of the signature cars of the 1950s. Built on the Packard 400 chassis, the Caribbean series automobiles were loaded with luxury appointments. The company produced 276 Caribbean convertibles in 1956.

The Caribbean series was powered by Packard's own overhead valve V-8 engine that displaced 375 cubic-inches and produced 310 horsepower thanks, in part, to twin four-barrel Rochester carburetors.

The 1956 Caribbean Convertible was the last full size Packard produced. This car sold new for $5,995.00. The 374 cubic-inch V-8 engine had 310 horsepower which was the highest in the industry. This engine featured two - 4 barrel carburetors with 10:1 compression ratio and a push button automatic transmission. The original colors were: Dover White, Scottish Heather and Maltese Gray.

The interior featured reversible seat cushions with leather on one side and boucle cloth on the other.

New for 1956 was the twin traction differential with limited slip 'designed for the fellow who must drive in all kinds of weather.'

This Packard was sold new in Painesville, Ohio. Ten years later it was acquired by Glenn Malme of Downey, California. In 2010, after putting 15,000 miles in his Packard over 44 years, Mr. Malme donated the car to the National Packard Museum.
