1947 Packard Custom Super 8
This Custom Super 8 was designated a CCCA Classic by the Classic Car Club of America and was primarily designed by therenownedHoward "Dutch" Darrin. It has a strong 356 Cu Inch straight 8 making 160hp and is 7 inches longer than a Packard Standard 8. The paint is very presentable and has excellent chrome. The body has no dents and few scratches. There is cobwebbing in a couple of places as shown in the photographs. The interior is mostly original except for a renewed clothupholstery and a renewed parcel shelf. The headliner is full of moth holes in front. The dash is original so it's tired but thegaugesare bright and readable. It has a good working Overdrive but no Electromatic Clutch. The transmission shifts easily and appears to be in good condition. All of the lights and gages work, s well as the radio and heater. It has the originalcloisonne crested hubcaps. My Classic Car mechanic says that this is one of the most "complete" cars he has run across.The car comes out of a long stored and dusty barn and the photos show it.Payment by cash or bank transfer and shipping easily arranged.
