Description

This is a car for someone who understands and appreciates classic ORIGINAL pre-war cars. I purchased this car in 1997 as my very first (of over twenty purchased since) collector car at auction from Tom Crook. He had obtained it from a 78 year old fellow in New York State who could no longer drive it. It has a 1997 New York Safety Tag in the windshield. Tom had the car conditioned, painted, and installed new tires. This car has been a pure delight obviously well maintained by its previous owner. Certainly the best pre-war driver I have ever owned. Never needed anything major, but only routine service. I recently replaced the fuel pump and I have by-passed the oil cooler that sprung a leak. These things are way obsolete and not needed with modern oils. The car never overheats. Grill louvers still work perfectly under thermostatic control--pretty amazing.
This sedan has the charm of all four suicide doors--last year for Packards with four suicide doors. All window cranks work properly including all four vent windows. The body and frame of this car are rock solid. All four doors close with a perfect thud. I will miss that the most because it is such a constant demonstration of the quality of this magnificent original Packard. This is NOT a concours car, but a car that presents wonderfully for an original car--very few originals could match it.
The car has the original, highly desirable Goddess of Speed hood ornament.
The clutch and transmission are fabulous such that the car shifts butter smooth.
