Description

PRODUCTION #'s: this body style-1,518 out of 71,079.
This Packard: Please note Question/Answer response below for HISTORY summary.
Power steering, brakes, top, antenna///REBUILT motor-strong enough to support aftermarket Air Conditioning install.
Straight up and cut to the chase, OWN IT FOR $26,500 without the seats done. I prefer to sell to a "first" time Packard owner type that would appreciate this perfect unrestored rendition. You're buying a taken care of, NOT barn find, example. Once the seats are recovered, it is ready to enjoy (seats can be taken to your local shop for recovering without the car; 15 minutes required to remove). Ya can hardly hear it run (it will start in 3 seconds at cold or running temperature)! Thats how good it is.
This is a classic with very low rust, efficiently working top, rebuilt original motor, smooth auto trans, the ORIGINAL interior door & back panels not needed to be done, starts faster than a modern car, quieter than one, some important power options, better than driver condition, etc, etc. This price is what they're paying for unrestored, hardtop sedans!
****NEW Battery & terminals installed 8/24/2015. *****Top works perfectly & correct with the new battery. Top original hydraulic operation has no glitches or unexpected slowness (the motor & pump can be seen in engine compartment picture). Two new gas filters installed 8/26/15 (replacing one between tank & fuel pump & one between fuel pump & carburetor; transparent filters to replace old metal no see filters).
Starts, accelerates, & shifts quietly. Still starts with gas pedal push & has the original old fashioned 6 volt battery; positive ground. Starting is so easy the 6 volts doesn't seem to strain.
Body & Paint: solid body metals in floors & trunk (as able to see from underneath). Some bondo used on rocker in front of driver side rear wheel. Splash fender areas & wells are rust free. The repaint is a nice job with almost no blemishes (definitely no bubbles, cracking, or pops). See the added top down/windows up picture. All the glass is perfect as well as chrome-stainless framings. Windows roll up/down great; fairly snug up against top rubber seals. Vent windows open easy & close tight. Doors close nicely with hardly any effort & have good allignments with NO drops. No rust at the bottoms or skins.
Interior & top: This has a power top with the original motorized hydraulic pump. The top material is as pictured needing a small repair & a plastic window replace. Top clamps nicely with very little effort. The windshield header is chrome perfect; no dents or rust. Sunvisors are in nice conditions.
Engine: A straight eight original REBUILT flathead motor. Smooth operation, no oil smoke, not overheat & no valve tapping.
Transmission: Original Automatic-shifts as if it is 10 years old; not 62.
Stability: Stays fairly true on road, but does have steering wheel play, but may be simply the power steering* yes, power steering! The power brakes seem very safe
Gauges: These are working-gas, charge, added oil pressure & temperature are mounted below dash. Back-up lights do not work. All other lights, horn, heater blower motor, Speedometer, power antenna work. Heater is hooked up .
POWER OPTIONS: STEERING, BRAKES, TOP, & ANTENNA (THE ORIGINAL RADIO IS NOT WORKING AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME).
