Description

Here we have a rare occasion, a 1948 Packard Woody Station sedan Series 22 Model 2293, one of the rarer cars on the market for restoration or drive as is. You can see from the pictures that the sheet metal and interior are in great shape . The engine and drivetrain are original and complete and runs out fine. We have documentation on this beauty dating back to 1979. No parts missing we even have the rear bumperets
Prior to World War II, Packard built wood-bodied station wagons in both the six-cylinder 115 and eight-cylinder One-Twenty variants. However, the new Clipper styling in 1941 was not compatible with timber construction. After the war, production of the Clipper resumed, and wagons were no longer constructed. By 1948, Packard introduced its all new 22nd series, which was a wider and lower adaptation of the sleek Clipper lines. This did not allow for the use of the perpendicular-style wagons still being produced by the Big Three. Packard pointed the way to the hybrid wagon, which was a design that consisted of a steel substructure augmented by wood frames and panels on the doors and upper body, and one that would eventually be embraced by Ford.
To manufacture their new car, Packard took four-door, six-passenger sedans off the production line, and the body supplier, Briggs Manufacturing Company, changed the roofline to incorporate a liftgate and tailgate. Using ash and maple, Briggs converted the sedan into a full station wagon, with steel supports at the B-posts and D-posts. This model was the most expensive of the short-wheelbase Packards, selling for $3,424. For many buyers, the price was well worth it, as the station sedan combined both practicality and a fantastic sense of style.
In 1947, Packard produced 126 examples of the 22nd Series Station Sedan. Production increased to 3,266 in 1948. Production continued into 1949, though a few remaining units were sold as 1950 models. Station wagons would not return to the Packard line-up until 1957 and 1958.
