1926 Packard 7 Passenger Limousine
1926 Packard 7 Passenger Limousine Previously Owned by Honduran President/Dictator:
I am the 4th owner of this vehicle. The original owner was General Triburcio Carias Andino. It was purchased for him by the National Party of Honduras and was delivered by the Knickerbocker Automobile Warehouse in New York City. In 1932, General Andino was elected President of Honduras and was inaugurated in this vehicle.
When purchased from the descendants of President Andino in 1975, this car had traveled less than 3000 miles due to the fact that there were no roads in Honduras other than in the capital city of Tegucigalpa. The car has a complete body off frame restoration that was completed in 1996. The car was in storage until 2014, when a refresh was performed on the vehicle. At that time, new tires were installed, the wiring inspected and soldered, the hub caps reconditioned and painted, the fuel system cleaned and rebuilt, brakes were rebuilt, the horn repaired and tested, and various cosmetic issues were addressed.
Here is some additional information:
Serial # 96824
Delivery Date: August, 1926
Body: 305 Sedan Limo, 7 Passenger
Engine: Single Six (in-line)
Horsepower: 82@ 3200 RPM
This is a very rare and historic vehicle with very few produced and even fewer surviving. This vehicle escaped the WWII metal drives by residing in Honduras during the war. If you are a collector of Packards, you will want this vehicle; if you are interested in owning a Classic Packard at a reasonable price, this is a great opportunity.
I am willing to sell internationally but only by wire transfer. Buyer is responsible for shipping. Vehicle is located in the Sierra foothills about 140 miles from San Francisco, CA.
