This is my 1940 Packard Super Eight 160 Club Sedan. I purchased the car five years ago from the estate of an auto dealer with a small collection of cars in San Francisco. The car's provenance previous to that was unavailable except that it was originally purchased from a Packard Dealer in Glendale, California in 1940 (see vehicle plate on cowl left side).
The car has the legendary Packard 8 cylinder, 356 cu in, 9 main bearing, 165 Hp engine which does not burn or consume oil.
Car condition is excellent:
Engine - Smooth, strong, excellent condition. Transmission - smooth, quiet, synchronized in 2 and 3.Clutch - Butter smooth. Rear End - smooth, quiet. Interior wood graining - original and excellent. Upholstery, carpet and head liner - like new and beautiful. All instruments work including clock (keeps lousy time). Suspension - solid Bumpers - Show age with very minor pitting. Overall exterior paint - aged, beautiful job about 30 years ago, shows chipping (see the last photo which is the worst chipping on the hood). Grill - Perfect with working thermostatically controlled louvers. I think the louvers are stainless steel. 6 volt positive ground electrical system - aged but working fine. New Diamond Back 215/85 R16 Radial 10 ply rated wide white wall tires (exact replacements for the original 7.00-16 bias ply tires.No rust on this California car.
