35: 1955 Packard Caribbean
During the height of the automotive revolution, there were more than a few American automotive companies. Amazingly, the automotive landscape has changed so much in the last few decades, and many notable brands have come and gone. The 1955 Packard Caribbean is one of the last “independent” American made convertibles, not a car that was created by the big three automakers. The 1955 Packard Caribbean is a rather unique convertible that combines a lot of what you’d expect in a car like this.
There were innovative features for the period such as an automated suspension and a dazzling array of interior functions. The two-tone paint job and the powerful engine gave the Packard Caribbean a unique look at a time when America was fueling innovation. Amazingly, Leno has managed to hang onto a piece of automotive history quite like this one.
