Smooth, reliable Packard Custom Eight
Handsome close-coupled club sedan body
High-quality restoration

The Sixth Series Packards were introduced on 1 August 1928. All Packards were now Eights, the six-cylinder models having been discontinued.

This Series 640 Custom Eight Club Sedan was delivered on 25 June 1929 by the Packard Motor Car Company of Boston. A high-quality restoration, it is painted black over green, with black wings, black mouldings, and a triple ivory pinstripe. The interior is finished in grey pinstripe cloth and is excellent in every way. The odometer shows fewer than 75,000 miles, and the engine bay is clean and correctly detailed. The five-passenger close-coupled body sits nicely between the axles on the 140.5-inch wheelbase, offering great comfort and leaving room for an exterior trunk and spare tyre at the rear. A pair of Trippe driving lights illuminate the way in front.

Handsome is as handsome does, and Packard’s motto, ‘Ask the Man Who Owns One’, would yield a resounding endorsement for this car.



Um suave e fiável Packard Custom Eight

Bela carroçaria curta club sedan

Restauro de elevada qualidade

Os Packard da sexta série foram introduzidos no dia 1 de agosto de 1928. Todos eram agora Eight, já que os modelos de seis cilindros tinham sido descontinuados.

Este Club Sedan 640 da sexta série foi entregue, a 25 de junho de 1929, pela Packard Motor Company de Boston. Trata-se de um restauro de elevada qualidade, pintado em preto sobre verde, com guarda-lamas e molduras a preto e uma faixa tripla a marfim. O interior é acabado em pano cinza listrado e é excelente. O conta-milhas mostra menos de 75.000 milhas e o compartimento do motor está limpo e detalhado corretamente. A carroçaria Sedan curta, para cinco passageiros assenta perfeitamente sobre o chassis que tem uma distância entre eixos de 140,5 polegadas (3568,7 mm). Oferece grande conforto e reserva espaço para um porta-bagagens externo e um pneu sobressalente na parte traseira. Um par de faróis Trippe garantem iluminação adequada à frente.

Diz o provérbio portugês que “a beleza é uma carta de recomendação válida por pouco tempo”. Mas o mote da Packard nesta época era: “Pergunte ao homem que tem um”. A resposta seria certamente um atestado de qualidades vitalícias para este automóvel.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
