1949 Packard Eight Sedan project car. Uncertain as to whether it is a Deluxe or just a Touring Sedan as the grilles look similar.
Are you looking for a car to fit all those clowns in, after they climb out of that regular-sized clown car? Something uglier than your life, wife, dog, home or anything else you can shake a stick at?
Well then, look no further, as this car is the perfect car to foot the bill.
Now in “Porsche Red” with a gray crushed velour interior, it has the seating capacity for six but could easily hold twenty-something, and all in comfort.
Lead Sled? Definitely!
With a ’74 Nova sub-frame tucked up underneath the front end and a modest 350 cu in Chevy small block for power, this upside-down bathtub/pregnant elephant/ land yacht could possibly accelerate from 0 to 60 in no more than two minutes, tops. The door and trunk handles have been shaved, and all chrome/stainless trim pieces have been removed or re-painted in the same color as the body. Headlights and radio antenna are “Frenched” and custom taillights are installed.
Does it run? Hell, yes!
Can you drive it now? Nope... not unless you want bugs in your teeth and that cool look of windblown hair and a possible shower (if it is raining).
While undergoing significant repairs in my father’s laboratory, the vehicle in question was subjected to a total reformation of all rocker panels and some floor modifications. It is two-thirds shot in color with primer on the right front fender and right front door. It is not entirely put together as a few pieces are removed (door panels/window trim/ front and rear glass/back seats/a few trim pieces and the sides of the front grille) but all pieces included upon sale.
The majority of the bodywork is already completed. The only parts needed, or required, to make it complete would be all weather-stripping and seals and of course a final paint job.
