1933 Packard Super Eight Model 1004 7-Passenger Sedan Chassis no. 654-I63 Engine no. 751263 385ci Side-Valve Inline 8-Cylinder Engine Single Stromberg Carburetor 145bhp at 3,200rpm 3-Speed Manual Transmission Front and Rear Leaf Spring Suspension 4-Wheel Servo-Assisted Drum Brakes *Subject of a $250,000 restoration *2013 AACA Senior First Place winner *High quality Packard from the peak of the classic era *CCCA Full Classic™ 1933 Packards are wonderfully made and styled automobiles - it was only a shame there were so few who could afford to buy them. 10th series production totaled a meager 4,800 units, a far cry from the 16,613 for the 9th series, and way down from the nearly 55,000 sold in 1929. The 10th series would represent Packard's smallest output of the Classic era. Built on the 142-inch wheelbase, the model 1004 was offered with 14 individual body styles. Priced at $3,090 at new, the 7-Passenger Sedan was one of the more expensive body styles available but was still one of the more popular ones for its luxurious practicality. All the same, only 1,327 Super Eight chassis were built, 788 of which were the longer wheel base models. This specific sedan has been the fortunate recipient of a restoration the likes of which is usually reserved for custom bodied open topped examples. About a quarter of a million dollars was spent turning this Packard into the true jewel it is today. Inside and out, the car is just resplendent. The driver and passengers enjoy soft, fine light tan cloth upholstery and highly polished wood trim throughout. All of the chrome has been carefully prepped and professionally redone. The gauges look as if they have just been installed at the Detroit factory. All of the correct fittings are present and the jump seats in the back look unused. Outside, the Thistle Green Dark paint is rich and lustrous, the product of meticulous preparation and application that the factory could have only dreamed of in '33. The chrome is all highly polished as well. A set of Trippe Speedlight graces the front, flanked by a set of auxiliary horns. Above them and astride the fenders are headlights and driving lights from a 1005/6 Packard Twelve. The bumpers front and back are sourced from a '33 Packard Twelve as well with their recognizable counterweights at the ends. The side mount spares are topped by optional side mirrors too. Opening the hood reveals a cleanly present, highly detailed and correctly finished straight eight motor.
