YAT MING 1/18 1953 PACKARD CARIBBEAN DIECAST MODEL
For the 1952 auto show, Packard exhibited a convertible sports car called the Pan American which won the Gold Medal for Outstanding Design and Engineering Achievement. Despite its limited production run, the Caribbean was the talk of the automobile world in 1953. Introduced late in the model season it quickly sold out. Our 1/18 scale precision diecast replica has all the features that dazzled car buyers 55 years ago. The Inline 8 327 cubic inch engine is wired and plumbed. The sides are chrome free and the whel openings are enlarged with flared lips. The Continental tire kit has a center cut out showing the wire wheel.
