1 of 750 made! Custom built by Packard, Flagship model.

Only 750 built total! It was a Glamorous automobile. Each were sent to Mitchell Bentley for the hand-crafted modifications. These were among the most expensive cars at the time. Directly competing with the Eldorado and Skylark. We just acquired 25 cars from the Claude O estate. He had a full-time mechanic maintaining his cars. He wanted to be able to drive any car at any time.

EXTERIOR: Hand formed rear quarters, full rounded wheel openings, a scooped hood, continental kit, extra trim and set of chrome wire wheels set it apart from all other Packards. The body is straight with no significant issues. Beautiful factory Gulf Green metallic color. It has a smooth glossy finish. Overall, the chrome trim is bright and smooth. A sparkling set of chrome wire wheels are mounted on wide whitewalls.

INTERIOR: The metal was repainted and matches the exterior. Original dash bezels, knobs, gauges all look good. The seats and door panel upholstery is very good. Features include power seat, power windows, wonderbar radio and day/night mirror.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Packard proven straight 8 runs silky smooth and makes an abundance of torque. 4 barrel carb was restored, has correct air cleaner assembly. The heater assembly is hooked up, battery is secured, ignition system looks good etc. Overall, it is very clean and proper.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is completely carpeted. The spare has a whitewall that's never been used. A shop manual and car cover are included.

UNDERSIDE: Under this car looks very clean and proper. It appears to be rock solid floors, smooth chassis components. The shocks and exhaust system looks recent. Looking up at the motor it's dry not greasy. It has the optional Ultramatic transmission.

This is a special car. One of America's leading luxury car manufacturer's flagship model. Custom built by Packard in limited quantities. Very sought after for obvious reasons.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year membership.
