The 1929 Packard Eight Highlights:
1929 brought substantial change to Packard's products, notably a new Standard Eight line which replaced the earlier Twin Six models. The 640 Custom Eights were among the most attractive and imposing of the Classic Era, with long hoods, sweeping fenders and large oval-backed headlights (a one-year-only feature). Design features abounded, from bright molding around the cowl to a drop molding along the belt line that could be accented with a contrasting color decor panel. This Packard is a highly original example of a rare coupe variant. The unusual Opera Coupe featured a more generous coupe configuration with a full and well-appointed back seat. The driver seat is flanked by a small occasional type seat. This body style was likely meant for a chauffeur and foot man with the primary occupants riding in the well-appointed rear seats.
The intriguing interior is correct to original standards with appointed wool broadcloth with elaborate wood trim displaying in marquetry idyllic romantic scenes. The interior even still has that wonderful new car smell, and the interior and exterior are simply stunning on this very rare find. Attractively liveried in dark Maroon and black, with black fenders, and riding on solid wheels finished with the correct pin striping on their faces. This car is freshly completed with six era correct white wall tires. Other nice options include dual side mounts and Packard trunk rack. Under the hood the big straight eight runs strongly, and displays the correct equipment including vacuum tank, bronze Packard carburetor and North East distributor.
