Survivors: Unrestored Classic Cars, Trucks & Motorcycles – There is debate about the definition of the term “survivor car.” Here is our simple definition: “A survivor vehicle is an antique vehicle that retains most of its original components, and has not been altered in any significant way since it was built.” Generally, most agree that a “survivor” – whether it’s a car, a truck, or a motorcycle — must typically have its original paint, interior, and other major parts. It’s a bonus when the vehicle has a known history, such as documentation confirming the location and date of its original purchase. With this in mind, Curato Stan Sipko has put together an outstanding array of “Survivors.” The Museum’s 1959 Cadillac is one example of the vehicles included in the exhibit.
Packard Showroom presented by Keystone Packards is displayed in the Williams-Clyne Gallery. Packard was considered the preeminent luxury car before World War II. This renowned marque was a favorite with European royalty, celebrities, and American corporate tycoons. President Franklin Roosevelt was known to give Packard limousines as gifts on several occasions. With little regard to expense, the vehicles boasted engineering prowess using the best of everything. Packard became synonymous with luxury, quality, refinement, and reliability.
Keystone Packards is a regional club, chartered by Packard Automobile Classics, the national club. Although they have members that reside outside of Pennsylvania, most members reside in Central and Eastern Pennsylvania.
