1948 Packard Convertible Victoria

The Packard Motor Car Company turned out the finest cars in the world, built to the highest standards of quality and engineering for over 50 years.  This legendary Marque is the choice of Top collectors the world over.  No Collection is complete without a Classic Era Packard.  This rare Example would make a fine addition to any collection and will garner quite a bit of attention at any Meet.  The 22nd Series Packard is the first true Post War Design, and the Convertible Victoria is the most rare and desirable with just 11oo units produced. The first convertible produced by Packard since the war, the Super 8 was a newly designed motor with a displacement of 327 Cu In. The Streamlined Body style exudes the flamboyance and style of its Era like few other cars can.  This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the truly outstanding cars of the late forties.

This fine example has a known history from new and was stored from 1955 to 1990 so the mileage (74,000)is believed original. The cosmetic restoration was started in the early 90's, and completed after the second owner passed on in 2001. The car has a nice paint job, decent top and interior, and since we acquired the car we have had the new carpet set installed and the trunk restored. Everything works in this car including the clock! In short this car is nice driver quality car. The car features power top, windows and seat, radio, heater, and the legendary Packard 3 speed/OD gearbox. Both Mascots-the Donut Pusher and the Cormorant-which is in excellent condition-are included. We removed it to save it for shows. There are a good deal of spares which will go with the car as well as a shop manual, period factory brochure and other documentation.We expect the "bathtub Packard" series to rapidly accerate in value in the next several years so this car represents a good solid investment grade vehicle that you can drive and enjoy while generating a decent return on your investment.
