Default Pair of '53 Henney Packard Jr.s in KS

https://wichita.craigslist.org/cto/d...769791307.html

I guess the price is right, if anyone wanted a big project. These things always seem to be in this same condition!

At this point, I don't need them, but somebody could make at least one nice one out of these. If this would have happened a few years ago, I might have taken a shot at them, because my wife likes them and so do I.

But there is very little demand for the Henney Jrs.

A couple of comments as I am a Packard guy. The one is a very early 53 as if you look the windshield is a 52 by the rounded upper corners. And yes not too many are thrilled by the Juniors but they are an interesting piece of history due to the fact that most were purchased by the Military. Second point is they drive quite well for a no power assist vehicle of the 50s no where near as truckey as the Senior Packards or Cadillacs of the era without power assist. Third at least these two do not look as if the rust monsters have taken them over a plus. Forth one at least looks like the die cast grill shell is not pitted.

I like the Juniors. My problem is that I have no ability to work on cars and it just costs too much money to have them done.

A good example of the lack of interest in these Henney Jrs would be the number of people who thanked me for posting this listing!

I will be within 10 miles of these cars on Thursday morning. I am not stopping by.

I would love one and getting a parts car to would be a plus but no room at the in and a project that is taking way longer to to finish now.
