Manual Convertible Top. Vinyl Interior SELLER REMARKS This machine is for the person who knows the difference between a car show and a concours. A Packard was a sign of wealth and distinction when it was new. and the reputation has only grown as these elegant machines have only grown rarer. Packards have always been about providing premium motoring. but this one shows a new level of class in its originality. The bodywork. chrome grille. solid two-tone wheels. lights. foldable luggage rack. and all other major components show signs that they were in the care of someone who knew that maintaining did not mean fidgeting. While the endurance of some paintjobs will mention the numbers of years it survived. this one can be measured in the people it outlived. The dual cowl phaeton is one of the most sought-after styles from this era. It combines the ideas of early open motoring with the elegant appearance (and function) of an adjustable second windshield for the passengers. For added weather protection. there is a folding canvas top. It has a sleeker profile than convertible sedans of this era. which allows for it to show off part of its wood construction. Factory-correct side curtains are also included if you need to fully button-up this phaeton. Because this Packard would spend most of its time open to the world. the interior perfectly complements the exterior. The seats are a near-perfect match for the tan paint. and the wood panels carry some of the same tones as the external brown. There is plenty of interior room within this car's 126-inch wheelbase (because 1928 was the fifth year for this series. this is often referred to as a 5-26 or 526 model). One of the most elegant pieces of this lumber wraps around the entire passenger cabin. and even curves up to create the top edge of the dash. It provides a great outline for the tapering five-person body. There might be a place or two that need a new lacquer finish for those who don't cherish absolute originality. Overall. It is hard to find a piece that has been replaced (or needs replacing) in the 87 years since this luxury car first left the factory. Powering this Packard is the 289 cubic-inch straight six cylinder motor. It's mated to a three-speed manual transmission (pre-synchromesh). 1928 was the final year for the "Single Six" and constant improvement to this model meant its 81 hp was now approaching its larger eight-cylinder brother. All Packards carried the same engineering marvels of the time such as the four-wheel brakes. chassis lubrication system. and pedal activated stop light. While the six-cylinder was a bit more economical. it is like trying to compare Rolls-Royces today. The cost of this phaeton when new could have bought around five Ford Model As. In fact. Packard used a great analogy to help people understand why the 526 models were so expensive. The company would mention that people once bought paper-soled shoes until they realized buying better shoes lasted longer. So Packard warned others not to pay less for paper-soled cars. Imagine if had they had only known how long this phaeton would last! Packard promoted this one as a car that offered beauty. distinction. comfort. long life. economy. and safety. Nine decades later. we couldn't agree more. and neither can the crowds gathering already in the showroom.
