Very rare, first year Station Sedan with lovely wood, and super solid body characteristics! Great color combination with restoration completed approximately 15 years ago! It remains an outstanding example representing one of only 3,864 built over their 3 years of production!
We are very excited to offer this incredibly solid, and cosmetically restored 1948 Packard Eight 6-passenger Station Sedan! Finished in gorgeous Packard Blue Metallic over all new Tan textured cloth & vinyl combination interior, it remains one of the most solid examples we have seen in many years! Powered by its original, numbers correct 288ci Straight 8 (G261532) producing 135 horsepower mated to a 3-speed column-shifted manual transmission, it continues to start without hesitation, and operate as Packard intended! Features include Packard engine oil filtration system, Cormorant hood ornament, fog lamps, heater/defrost, pushbutton AM radio with roof antenna, rear fender shrouds, faux wood dash & window garnish moldings, front & rear Master Guards bumper protection, turn signals, Glare-proof rearview mirror, Universal 7.60-15 4-play wide whitewall tires, and more! The rear storage compartment is nicely finished inside with beautifully stained wood slats and stainless steel rails allowing for the rear seat to be folded down for optimum cargo space!
Showing only 46,151 miles, and considering the minimal visible wear since restoration, we feel it is too difficult to claim as completely accurate. The body and chassis remain remarkable solid and rust free. It has been repainted its original color in modern base/clear fashion approximately 15 years ago with professional results. It continues to remain quite gorgeous and show ready! The exterior chrome is also continuing to provide much shine and luster having the bumpers and exterior door handles already re-chromed. Inside, one would marvel at the condition level of wood-painted trim pieces, undamaged headliner, steering wheel, and remarkably original chrome appointments!
All main features continue to operate as they should. It hails most recently from Deltona, Florida since 2003. We have just contributed a new battery, new brake master cylinder with freshly bled braking system, new spark plugs & wires, engine oil/filter, new exhaust muffler & pipe, along with fully flushing the original gas tank and having it properly sealed for years of continued service. This beautiful vehicle represents a unique opportunity to a Packard collector or enthusiast. Please feel free to call with questions or schedule a chance to review in person!
