Packard Custom Eight 1949 Unique in good condition
The American car brand Packard stood for pure luxury. This Custom Eight variant from 1949 also shows that well. The nickname for the Packard was called the Pregnant Elephant, because of its shape. This example comes from a private collection and is ready for a new adventure.
This Custom 8 was restored in the early 1990s and then used at various rides and events. After this, the Packard ended up in a collection. The ivory-colored exterior is adorned by the imposing front with lots of chrome. The exterior of the Packard is in good condition with traces of use. A beautiful detail is the working searchlight on the roof!
The interior is beautiful! Equipped with beautiful fabric upholstery that is finished in detail with small chrome details. The original dashboard is a wood look of metal with beautiful instruments. From the cockpit you can operate and switch on the searchlight on the roof. A beautiful detail is the radio, which is completely recessed in the dashboard. The fabric upholstery has once been replaced and is therefore in beautiful condition, the other parts of the interior are original.
Technically, the Packard has the very impressive 5,833cc 8-cylinder in-line engine with 160 HP. Linked to the completely new (NOS) 3-speed gearbox, unique and original. The original gearbox is included with the Packard. Furthermore, the starter motor has recently been completely revised for more than 2,200 euros. The Packard drives, brakes and shifts well. However, the car should be checked after a longer period of inactivity. A test drive is no problem at all!
The Custom Eight is one of the most luxurious versions and is rarely seen. This copy is in good condition and ready to use!
