Details

This 1948 Packard Deluxe Eight Station Sedan, #229321744, recently underwent a frame-off restoration. Restoration work included a full engine rebuild, suspension, brakes, exhaust system, high-quality body work and new glass (with the exception of the tailgate window). New correct birch frames with mahogany wood-grained panels as well as new chrome, interior, seat upholstery and headliner were all included at the time of restoration. Upgrades include leather seating, wool carpet, chrome plating on the seat frames, tailgate hinges, and latches; and radial tires. Wiring used in the car was a complete, new, in-the-box NOS kit. This car features an electromatic clutch and overdrive, both factory options in 1948. Finishing details include the return of the steering wheel to the proper ivory color and the restoration of the vacuum-powered antenna. Vehicle is sold with a title.
