1953 Packard Patrician

I noticed the Elsametric Power Brake, and the rubber boots under the pedals.
How they kept the switch decal intact for the past 55 years, without keys scratching it up!

Elegant handles, classy font, and the way the paint has a hammered aluminum look, very nice!
Notice the 2 small knobs on the sides of these photos, the ashtrays. Since the high dollar crowd in the 50's must have been selfish smokers, and may have felt it crude to share an ashtray.
Very nice touch, roll top ashtray for the passengers in the backseat
