Although 1932 was not a banner year for sales, Packard’s new, expanded lineup was one of the most stylish in the company’s history.
The new Ninth Series was introduced early on June 17, 1931.
The cars were all longer, lower and faster than the 1931 models.
The Standard Eight engine was modified with a redesigned manifold and fan.
An increase in compression ratio to 6.0:1 produced 110 horsepower.
Noise and vibration was improved thanks to a redesigned air cleaner; the driveshaft being jointed and rubber mounted, and the fitting of new rubber engine mounts.
The lengthened chassis was redesigned, as were the components.
In its new double-drop frame a four-speed all-synchromesh transmission was fitted, but around mid-year it was replaced by a three- speed synchromesh unit.
Chassis lubrication remained via the Bijur system, but the 40 points were now all oiled automatically thanks to a new system.
A new adjustable shock absorber system known as “ Ride Control ” allowed the driver a choice of three settings to tune-in the desired ride. This was controlled by a plunger near the driver ’ s left knee that controlled the amount of oil to the shock absorbers.

For 1932, one of the most attractive in the Series 902 was Body No. 509, the Coupe/Roadster.
With its snug fitting top and roll-up windows, it was really no longer a roadster, but actually a convertible coupe. A new top design allowed it to be folded flat into the body, which when down provided the Roadster/Coupe with a flowing, graceful appearance.
All the Packard Roadster/Coupe models were fitted with a rumble seat. With a list price ranging from $2,650 to $2,850, wire wheels were standard, but dual sidemounts were an option.

This 1932 Packard Coupe/Roadster is an older professional restoration bearing only a gentle patina on its sweeping lines. Painted in dark brown with two tone cream trim and wheels fitted with period wide whitewalls, this Series 902 portrays a sporty elegance that was lost in later models.

Apart from only the most minor of wear, the deep brilliant chrome is as striking as ever.
The tan cloth top was custom-made to factory specifications, but fitted with an original rear window for added comfort when cruising.
Under the hood you ’ ll find a fully detailed, recently serviced Packard Straight Eight engine in excellent running condition.
Other recent work includes a rebuilt carburetor, a new distributor and rebuilt starter, and complete re- wiring with the correct vintage cloth covering.
The entire chassis was virtually rebuilt over the past ten years.

Inside, the cream Connally leather panels and seat show minimal wear as does the matching wool carpet. For 1932 Packard designed a striking new instrument panel of dark burled walnut with the instruments grouped in a blue/black engine-turned sub-panel.
This dash also sports recently rebuilt gauges and a refinished factory steering wheel.

Desirable features such as dual sidemounts, driving lights, horns and mirrors, a stylish golf door, luggage rack and trunk, as well as all manuals and handbooks, add to the enormous appeal and pleasure that will be derived from owning this fine, classic Packard.

In 1932 Packard delivered only 972 Series 902 models and far fewer were built of the handsome Roadster/Coupe.

A classic at the time of its introduction with its grand style, power and fine road-holding, it remains so to this day amongst Packard owners.
