1946 Packard Sedan. Just completed and tested rebuilt motor, new wide white wall tires, recent upholstery work. Beautiful hand rubbed, multi-layer dark blue original paint. I just drove it the first 40 miles since we worked on it. It runs beautifully at freeway speeds. It runs nice and cool. This car is virtually rust free. No hint of a smoker ever being in it. The motor still needs to be run-in for another thousand miles or more before you take it any faster. The speedometer goes to 120 miles per hour, but I doubt the car will. Packards were considered to be the most advanced, prestigious cars on the road. I moved to Coronado where I have a two car garage, but I have 5 cars. Some have to go. I can ship this anywhere.

This 54 Packard Caribbean is in Tennessee near Nashville where it is meticulously stored and driven on nice days and special occasions. The car was 100% restored 9 years ago and runs like a champ and still looks pristine. The car shows well and has many awards to its credit. The Caribbean was seen at large car shows in Nashville and then was invited to an inclusive invite only Concours show where it competed against 10 other exceptional Packard's from this era and it won 2nd place and I bet the shrewd judges had to flip coin between first and second. Everything is correct down to the bias ply tires that drive very well. Mileage shown is correct to car. The rebuilt the 359 Straight 8 is correct with higher compression aluminum head. The block has over bore.030 and crank was turned .010 and .020. New valves and lifter were installed. This motor makes the Caribbean cruise. Many hard to find NOS parts were located and used through out. The late Bob Aller of Packard mechanical fame was very instrumental in providing his abundant knowledge of Packards in getting this car correct to factory standards. He rebuilt the transmission and steering components and advised. The interior was done in correct red and white leather with correct seat buttons put in place. The under side is very clean and has a little road dust on it from being enjoyed. All hydraulics and electrics work has should. The owner’s plans have changed and wants to move this beauty to a new home. No disappointments. You can call 931-432-6377 8-5 Central time with questions or comments I also have video of this car driving I could email. Fly into Nashville and inspect. Sells world wide....

Posted Over 1 Month

1936 Packard Twelve 1407 Coupe Roadster                             Last of the truly great Packard Twelve’s!  Suicide doors, dual side mounts, chrome wire wheels, rumble seat, AM radio, deluxe heater, and more!  Gorgeous interior, excellent chrome, rebuilt drivetrain, and same former ownership of 25+ years!  Represents one of only 682 Twelve’s built for 1936, and one of the few Coupe Roadsters to ever come to market! After the Great Depression of 1929 had crippled American lifestyle, Packard Motor Car Company of Detroit, MI felt buyers of their exclusive product line would require more value for their money once on showrooms. It was decided that Senior Packard’s would become even more opulent and expensive!  Style lines improved dramatically, and the numbered Series models continued as they begun in 1923.  By 1931, adjustable shocks allowed for a new, driver-operated Ride Control system.  The Twin Six twelve cylinder-equipped vehicles were simply renamed Twelve’s in 1933 and stayed this way through their final year of 1939. With the introduction of a new medium-priced model, which came to production in 1935, named the 120 Model, it undeniably saved Packard from a similar demise of luxury brands such as Stutz, Marmon, Franklin, Pierce-Arrow, and Duesenberg. This inexpensive Junior option was built by more modern mass-production standards, while the Senior cars continued to require slower, handmade traditional craftsmanship.  Nearly 10 times as many Junior cars would be produced.  Packard continued to be recognized as America’s strongest luxury brand the world over.   For several reasons the 1936 model year, named the 14th Series instead of the 13th apparently for superstitious reasons, would become one of the most desired among serious Packard collectors.  It would be the last year for suicide style forward opening doors, solid axle front ends, and availability of wire spoke wheels!  The Twelve Coupe Roadster undeniably being one of the most beautifully sculpted Packard’s of all time! We are very excited to offer this hard to find 1936 Packard Twelve 1407 Coupe Roadster finished in Mayan Maroon with Red pinstripe and Tan Leather interior accented beautifully by Carpathian straight grained elm wood grained dash and steering wheel. Powered by its original & fully rebuilt 473ci V12 engine (#904445) producing 175 horsepower/366 ft. lbs. of torque mated to a 3-speed floor-shifted manual transmission with synchromesh top two gears.  Options & features include 17” Chrome wire spoke wheels wrapped in Michelin X 7.50R17 XCA Radial tube type wide whitewall tires, dual side-mounted spare tires with steel covers and Packard “se-Rite” mirrors, dual sun visors, metal-inlayed wood door caps, Packard Deluxe AM car radio, Packard heater, Ride Control system, dual golf bag doors with key locks, vacuum assisted drum brakes, rear rumble seat with fold out arm pads, interior map light, 30 gallon gas tank, and more! Our gorgeous example showcases a 30-year old restoration that survived exceptionally well while in the hands of its former Seattle caretaker of 25 years! Having a proper, professional restoration hold up this well over time supports it was done right the first time.  The dash wood graining, seat leathers, steering wheel, interior knobs & controls all appear in excellent condition.  The exterior chrome is bright and smooth without and spotting or pitting, while the paint lacquer paint has held up quite well with only subtle signs of age upon closer inspection.  Always garaged, and only driven and the nicest of days during the limited season provided in the Northwest.  Today, it continues to be an excellent driver provided with an electric fuel pump, added Antique, Inc. turn signals, and a battery cut-off under the hood for times of storage. According the Packard body tag attached bearing chassis #939-223, this car sold new in February 1936 from Packard in Akron, OH. Having made its way to the west coast later in life, with a stop in Oregon before settling into Washington State, it was honored with a CCCA National First Place award after being restored (Award #1154).  A great opportunity for the astute Packard collector looking for the last of the great Twelve’s ever built!  This Packard Twelve 2/4 Coupe Roadster would be a splendid addition!  Please feel free to call with questions.

This is a good older restoration of a classic Packard 1800 Convertible Coupe. We purchased her in 2004, replaced the carpet, wood grained the dash obtained a perfect hood mascot and have enjoyed driving her on tours, to car shows and just for Sunday outings as she is always reliable and fun to drive, not to mention a head turner -- not too many of this type around nowadays. Due to our age and having too many cars, we are 'culling the herd' a bit by selling a couple of our 'babies'. She has a few minor paint chips and flaws due to her age and because she is a driver. As shown in the pictures, there is a slight dent in the trunk lid from someone in the past closing it without releasing the hinges and a slight scratch on the driver's door as well as other small areas that can be corrected easily. Tires are good and about 3 years old. She has an overdrive transmission that is not connected, newer carpet, wood-grained dash and miscellaneous extra parts -- starter, generator, fuel pump carburetor AND a 1940 110 Packard engine as well. Someone before us had replaced the original engine with a 1946 6 cylinder (exactly the same as 1940 as Packard produced it for many years). Mileage is an estimate only as I cannot guarantee it due to the age of the car. The engine has the overdrive transmission but it is not operational due to procrastination on my part. Sold as is, where is with no warranty expressed or implied, buyer is responsible for shipping, insurance and payment within seven days.

“Ask the man who owns one too many.” 1949 PACKARD EIGHT STATION SEDAN A deluxe wooden powder keg of Detroit’s finest buttercream, this is a beautifully preserved, meticulously detailed, faithful example, done for the love of the project. A west coast car, sorted, strong and solid, this is Packard’s “Double-Duty Beauty,” fully dressed, with a handsome boatload of extras. KING OF THE CARRY-ALLS… HEAR, HEAR! QUEEN OF THE HIGHBALLS… HICCUP! Country club charm. Carry-all convenience. Grand as an Adirondack lodge. With luxurious seating for six and 21 square feet of cargo space, Packard’s “Double-Duty Beauty” chauffeured post-war giddy, tipsy ballroom-hopping parties all night long, into quiet, red-eyed retreats to field and stream come first light on the weekend. Whether hauling fishing kit and hunting rifles, or blue-ribbon flats of flowers for 4-H Club competitions, it is ruggedly constructed and dutifully well-rounded as an Octoberfest beauty queen tapping kegs of Olde Frothingslosh on a 1949 auto parts calendar page. No matter what adventure it inspired, it’s elegance and engineering is without a doubt, pure Packard. According to Robert J. Neal’s wonderfully researched publication, PACKARD 1948-1950, the utilitarian Station Sedan is a unique, rare model. This exclusive, bobbed boat tail beauty is one of 3,800 examples hand-built in a very limited run, before the model was discontinued by the end of 1950. How many survived almost seventy years of inevitable decay, neglect and Mother Nature’s entropy? I’ve seen recently that they make a super-deluxe ventilated chicken coop when the Terminix® contract is up, the wheels and glass are shot out into the weeds, frame down to the ground and only the glovebox will hold a day’s fresh eggs, because the rest fall past the upholstery carcass through floors of swiss cheese to the fox. ENDLESS HOURS. COUNTLESS HANDS. A FINE EXAMPLE FROM COAST TO COAST. This particular Station Sedan benefits from extensive preservation of it’s existing personality from caches of NOS spares and even more, the talent, enthusiasm and discretion of Packard Club members who built old and new back together, so seamlessly, that it’s soul remains intact. Since 2010: 4,000 miles after an extensive cosmetic restoration. 1,000 miles on current mechanical preservation. ( Danger! Run-on story and potholes of detail ahead. ) - VIN data plate G272898 ( CA DMV renumbered, long ago. Possibly on top of the Packard renumbering of Station Sedans up to three times before selling these slow moving, expensive models over three calendar years. ) - Series 2201 - Briggs body style tag: Model 2293-5025 - Firewall theft tracking number: 837728 - Paint Scheme: W ( Arizona Beige ) - Trim Code 614: Tan leatherette & pinstripe vinyl - 120-inch wheelbase - Gross weight: 4,080 attractive pounds Assorted date stamps: - Clock: 9-48 - PPG/Herculite/LOF Safety Plate glass:10-48 - Speedometer: 11-48 ( This car was a respectable restoration candidate over ten years ago with 70,000 miles on the clock. ) A COSMETIC RESTORATION SO EYES NEVER TIRE IN ADMIRATION. Mae West opined, a woman should cultivate her curves, “They may look dangerous, but they’ll be impossible to avoid.” This Station Sedan has become again a compelling feast for the eyes, making a Vargas pin-up break from the wooden fruit crate box utility that defined wagon design since the drawl of a horse. All Packards are famous for being a sight to behold. This car is no exception, possessing an organic shape that is as much a piece of minimalist sculpture as it is a sumptuous way to get from here to there. WOOD: About 2/3 of the original honey-toned wood was preserved with a few unsalvageable pieces used for templates blended in new maple. Stripped, sanded, stained and then finished with 15 coats of marine-grade polyurethane by San Diego woodie expert, Bowden Auto Body, Escondido, CA. All refinished sections were reinstalled as factory fit, with new 3M Di-Knoc used on the door panel and tailgate inserts. BODY & PAINT: Also at Bowden, all body panels were removed and completely disassembled for blasting, sanding, prime and paint, with new metal replaced only in a front floor section. Interior floor and door shells eventually coated in POR-15 and layered in sound dampener. Factory panel fit prevails with hardware, gasketing and seals as needed between all metal and wood. Oh, and Arizona Beige? It’s nothing but pure buttercream icing deep enough to slice. TRIM: All chrome and stainless ( except for dash components ) was removed and either re-chromed or polished by the best shop in Los Angeles, Van Nuys Plating, and it shows. All rubber seals around glass, windows, doors and vents were replaced using Steele Rubber products. The wood graining around the tin window trim was redone for all four doors and both rear compartment windows, six frames total. The dash is untouched, still lovely in it’s original wood grain and chrome jewelry. INTERIOR: A complete, new and correct interior was installed by a talented upholstery shop, Armand’s Auto Upholstery, Walnut Creek, CA, whose owner owned a Station Sedan and knew them well, having restored a few west coast examples with expertise. Seat fabric, door panels, kick panels, windlace, headliner, and rubber flooring were all replaced using correct materials. Seat frames were painted. The rear cargo area plywood and stainless luggage rails were refinished with beautiful, showroom effect without compare. A removable, square-weave, wool carpet is also installed over the original-style, ribbed mat rubber flooring. Overall, proper fit and finish throughout, very well done. Finished with seat belts for five and factory floor mats. From the hushed closure of the bank vault doors, the cabin is quiet, solid and as exceptional as the exterior. The seats are firm again. The windows mechanisms roll with ease. The glovebox is the only perfect square on the whole curvaceous car! Under the original wood-grained dash, seat adjustment, dash controls and pedal release, all mechanical and electrical controls are precise and move effortlessly, operating like new again. Under the dash is tidy, and stock, with NOS switches and rebuilt overdrive cable. The Victrola-sized tube radio was removed to ease access for new harness and improve around-town gas mileage. The only uninvited guest is a hidden toggle switch for the auxiliary, inline fuel-pump. CHASSIS: Underneath, the frame and body panels are exceptionally straight and clean, without signs of accident or repair. Thoroughly steamed cleaned and wire brushed from front to rear, with removal of loose undercoat and debris from entire front clip, wheel wells, across floor panels and rockers to under gas tank, then coated in only chassis black oil-based paint. Seams sealed, no surface rust, solid as the topside of the car. A MECHANICAL RESTORATION TO REINTRODUCE MOTOR TO CAR AND COMPANY. P is for power. Taking inspiration from the powerful reputation Packard earned from V-12s to Merlins, here’s the “fire-breathing” upgrade that the factory eventually proposed to accelerate the Station Sedan behemoth into a 23rd series. But history hadn’t been so kind. So better late than never. Out with the tired, original 288 and in with this fresh 327 engine rebuilt by Ross Miller of Speedwell Garage. Ross, a master mechanic and engineer, National Packard Club judge, forum advisor, international ambassador and overall skinned-knuckle, rolled sleeves, hands-on flywheel for all roadworthy endeavors in a Packard. 327 c.i. Thunderbolt H.O. head ( iron-1953 ) w/ 4-barrel Carter carb & manifolds 180 hp, 5 bearings, solid lifters Engine H402789, cast 5-24-49 ( H=23rd series, donated from a low-mileage Super ) Note: The anemic, original 288 c.i., 135 hp, 2-barrel, G267172 CE, dated 11-9-48 ( G=22nd series ) is available as a cheap core, or fully rebuilt, from Ross Miller, Speedwell Garage, Parton, MD 21120 ( 410-357-4561 ). With the M back in motor, every component also under the hood has been rebuilt or replaced with NOS and NAPA to give this car a complete, new start on a second life with renewed cooling, vacuum, heating, electrical and fuel systems. Nothing untouched, nothing left to guess, fiddle or curse. Other assorted mechanical chores crossed off: COOLING Radiator, heater core, fan and control valve thoroughly rebuilt, with fresh hoses and coolant. ELECTRICAL With rebuilt 6v starter, generator, the car starts immediately without any hesitation and drops to idle with all lights shining bright through a complete, new Rhode Island wire harness, bumper to bumper. New ignition components, battery, master kill switch and belts. All interior switches click and snap properly. The vacuum-operated wiper motor is rebuilt and functional again for the occasional cloudburst. WHEELS / SUSPENSION / DRIVETRAIN: Two tons of controlled stop, drop and roll…The front suspension is re-bushed and tight again along with new front and rear shocks, rear leaf springs and bushings. Alignment checked, the car stands perched on new Diamond Back radial white wall tires. Complete brake service with replacement of master cylinder, hoses, wheel cylinders, shoes and drums. Wheel bearings, axle half shafts and shims. NOS emergency brake cable found, installed and properly adjusted for most confidence. The steering, column shift, overdrive and transmission are precise, as expected. Chassis is fully greased. Rolling and floating above it all like a Macy’s parade balloon, this car is still as impressively smooth as Packard’s historic Straight-Eight reputation. FUEL The four-barrel Carter carburetor is rebuilt, the gas tank cleaned and sealed, hung on new straps. An auxiliary, in-line pulse pump is installed to back up the new engine-mount pump by toggle-switch. A new muffler and exhaust vent an aromatic spring of hi-test Jean Naté.

THE TRUTH ALWAYS LEAKS OUT. What chores are up ahead? The car is not asking for much more attention than what can be accomplished over another six pack or single-malt… I’ve got a fresh pinion seal to replace the one that is spotting up my floor. It’s not slinging, so no rush, no hurry. While underneath, the overdrive is asking for adjustment so the trans finds reverse every time when parked, still in overdrive. The new temp sender in the head occasionally sends a false reading to the gauge. I’ve been thinking about installing a nice new oil pressure / water temp gauge cluster discreetly under the dash for accurate touring purposes anyway. Overall, this car is in fine health and at the ready. A man can never be lost when he owns a car that reminds him of a little something to do. Preservation always requires a little responsibility. The big bugs of perpetual nuisance have already been stepped on and smacked dead by an open checkbook. A CURVE IS THE LOVELIEST DISTANCE BETWEEN HERE, AND THERE, THEN AND NOW. It is an absolute delight to share with the enthusiastic every time it’s parked, abruptly turning as many heads and dropped jaws along the way as a string of firecrackers! Children clamor. Seniors hustle. Texting parents snap shots. Its well-endowed, portly shape floats quietly past, a shape so out of context today, parading like a whale, breaching amidst a sea of square automotive appliances, computer-designed for obsolescence. Once docked, Packard’s thoughtful human touch is its inspiring marvel, magic and mystery. Admiring conversation follows in its wake constantly, like the wisp of smoke trailing Buck Rodgers across the sky… If interested, you are encouraged to slip behind the wheel, the chrome and buttercream timber for a drive. It still has the scent of grandmother’s parlor, without the crystal dish of wintergreen mints, and the Flite-Glo instrument panel has a glowing luminescence at night that radiates like a jar of fireflies blazing brightly in the back of our minds, while quietly parked roadside in an owner’s imagination and memory. CUTTING TO THE CHASE. As a sincerely appreciative Packard club member, sometimes a man’s favorite car is his next one, and Just Ask The Man Who Owns One too many. There just is never enough garage space. An embarrassment of riches, cars like this are hard to catch and even harder to release. Getting a jump on spring cleaning, I’m needing to say good buy. Forget the gold rings and turtle doves. True love in a new year can always be found in a two-ton Packard hung up in a pear tree.
