The custom eights were poised at the top of Packards 'Production' model lines.  The discriminating luxury car customer from 1949 would have compared a super deluxe eight against Cadillacs series 60 special, while leaving the less impressive Lincolns and Chrysler New Yorkers off the list.  The custom eight was lavishly appointed with extensive chrome cladding, premium wool upholstery and gorgeous interior woodgrain trim.  The automatic ultramatic and 3 speed manual overdrive transmissions were mated to Packard's larger 356 cubic inch Packard straight eight engine. The custom eight touring sedan featured here is a handsome original with good paint and chrome.  The highlight of this car is the attractive beige broadcloth and woodgrain trim, appearing in very good to excellent condition.  The intrinsic lengthwise-seamed headliner is as tight as new with no unsightly stains from moisture or cigarette smoke.  The black paint shows normal wear but is quite presentable, likewise with the chrome which holds a bright luster.  The engine runs good with engine compartment in good cosmetic condition.  The car made a relatively long trip to our showroom driven by it's previous owner.  This is an excellent driver-quality Packard custom eight that's just right for the Classic Car Enthusiast that loves touring.  Youtube video available upon request.  Call our classic car division at 815-385-8408 for video and/or vehicle information.
