1940 Packard Super 8 160 Convertible Sedan. BEAUTIFUL! See VIDEO. 1940 Packard Super 8 160 Convertible SedanListed on behalf of Monte Shelton MotorsSold by Eastman Motors of Stamford. Connecticut on October 27. 1939. this was the 25th Super 8 Convertible Sedan built of just 149 produced during the 1940 model year. Approximately 15 are known to remain today and this is certainly one of the nicest. After having been enjoyed in Southern California for many years. the previous owner of this car commissioned a full restoration that was just finished in January. Unfortunately. he did not live to see it. Thus. it is now being offered for sale. The body was stripped and repainted in correct Packard Cream color. All chrome was re-plated. including the window frames. New top and upholstery. Leather seats. Dashboard restored with new wood graining and plastic. which is spectacular. Highly optioned with Deluxe steering wheel. Deluxe Heater/Defroster. Dual spotlights. Dual fog lights. Front Bumper Guard. Dual backup lights. Dual sidemounted spare tires with covers and mirrors. Trunk rack. Cormorant Hood Ornament. Mechanically. this Packard is excellent. Original 356 cubic inch straight eight engine was re-built by well-known So. Cal. Packard restorer. Gary Osko. This was the most powerful 8 cylinder American car on the road in 1940. 165 horsepower. 3 speed manual transmission. No overdrive. Electrical system upgraded to 12 volts for trouble-free starting. Brand new radial wide whitewall tires. I have personally owned four 1940 Packards and am in a good position to compare. I have driven this car over 150 miles and it runs and drives without fault. Shifts crisply. Good acceleration and that legendary smooth running. powerful Packard engine all combine for a great driving experience. Please see video. 1940 represents the final year of the "classic" Packard styling. With outboard-mounted bullet headlights. running boards. sidemounted spare tires and trunk rack. this one has it all. It qualifies as a Full Classic™ by the Classic Car Club of America and is eligible for participation in all CCCA events and tours. Of course it would also be welcome at any Packard Club functions.
