All work was done by top professionals with an eye toward making the car appear completely stock. The ride height has not been altered. The steering wheel and column are stock Packard. Wheels are stock. All exterior and interior appointments and trim appear original (with the subtle addition of two air conditioning vents below the dash center.) One is hard-pressed to see that anything has been modified. In fact, ecently this car was driven from California to the Classic Car Club Museum's national "Packard Experience" Show at Hickory Corners, ichigan, eaturing the finest Packards from throughout the U.S. and Canada. This car was displayed on the show field next to completely stock Packards and no one in attendance (including Packard "purists") noted this car to be anything but an original 1941 Coupe from all outward and inward appearances. Please see photos. Most importantly, his car drives beautifully. As mentioned above, t was driven from California to Michigan for the CCCA show - a 5,000 mile round-trip - at freeway speeds of 70 MPH+ and it performed flawlessly. Several weeks after returning from Michigan it was driven from Los Angeles on a 1,000+ mile round trip to "Hot August Nights" in Reno where it was displayed among the best rods and customs in the country. Please see video. This car truly offers you the best of both worlds: A stock-appearing Packard that will be welcome for display at shows everywhere; and a truly modern driving and handling road car that can be driven anywhere with complete confidence. It has been enjoyed by the current owner and is only being sold to make room in the garage. As mentioned above, ver $140,000 was spent on this build, one by "the best of the best." It is being offered here for quick sale at a reserve that is a only little over 1/3 of what has been invested. It certainly could not be re-created for the asking price. Please bid accordingly. WE WILL HAPPILY SELL TO BIDDERS, ORLDWIDE. Thanks for looking and GOOD LUCK. If the video link below is inactive, lease go to: https://youtu.be/iC4DlFGmLLg
