Auto Center Dr, Suite 101 Mesa Arizona 85204 1949 Packard Super Eight Vehicle Information VIN: G421773CE Stock: 0531-PHX Mileage: 51,461 Color: Burgundy Trans: 3 Speed Manual Engine: 327 Straight 8 MPG: Drivetrain: Description Take a moment to take in all of this 1949 Packard Super Eight Victoria convertible. After all, you want a vehicle with plenty of originality when it was one of less than 220 produced that year. So when you want rarity, distinction, and classic luxury, this Packard should be on your list.
Packards are always quite a unique classic in nearly every crowd, but this one has an extra story to tell. 1948 was the first year they got their post-war designs on the streets, and the new Victoria convertible was a true show-stopper. The extra sleek design flowed from the fenders directly into the doors, and it remained streamlined all the way to the wraparound rear bumper. It truly has style and elegance with a wraparound chrome front end, two full-length trim strips, rear fender skirts, and the Goddess of Speed leading the way. So it's great to see it all pleasant and looking so nice on this example. The reason why we mention 1948 Is because Packard didn't bow to conventional model years. This '48 cars were their 22nd series, and because they were so revolutionary, some were produced into the 1949 registration period. There were approximately 215 Super Eight Victoria convertibles that followed that designation, and this is believed to be one of those few.
The interior has a high degree of originality, which makes this quite a sight. There's plenty of room across the two rows of bench seats, and there's enough room in the trunk for a stand-up spare. The classic Packard steering wheel gives you a clear view to the jewel-like gauges, and the dash is complete, right down to the AM radio that's still on display. A Packard of this caliber cost about as much as a similar Cadillac of the era, and so the level of luxury is quite high. So you have rare features for the '40s, like a power seat. Plus, the power windows and power convertible top are a terrific luxury that allow you to open this classic convertible up to the world without ever leaving the driver's seat.
Power comes from Packard's durable and reliable 327 cubic inch straight-eight. The whole engine bay has a very honest presentation, and the block is so long it looks like it belongs in a locomotive. The motor has been treated with respect, and there's even a new fuel pump, so it fires up eagerly. This powerplant is mated to a column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission, which means you get a great vintage feeling while maintaining complete control.
This is the rare convertible that's complete in appearance and it's eight-cylinder eagerly fires up. So you're looking at a noteworthy classic that's great to show off now, or is the perfect candidate to take to the next level. If you love true classic car distinction, don't let this Packard slip away. Call today!!!
