SUMMARY

Rare, luxury, right-hand drive Packard that's been in our late vendor's enthusiastic ownership for 25 years.

DESCRIPTION

  • Packard were manufacturers of high-quality motor cars featuring their own 5.3-litre straight-eight engine. Right-hand drive examples were made in the USA and shipped to England where they were mostly retailed by Leonard Williams & Sons in London. 
  • Offered from a deceased estate, the late owner purchased this Super Eight in January 1998
  • During his ownership, the car was fully restored and still presents well to this day
  • Attractively finished in dark blue and well accessorised, benefitting from an older restored Bedford Cord beige interior  
  • Having last been on the road in 2017, some recommissioning will be required prior to returning this lovely old Packard to active use.
