For 1929, Packard offered four distinct series of automobiles, each designation having a parallel to the car’s wheelbase – the 6-26 and 6-33 Standard Eights (with 126.5 and 133.5 inch wheelbases, respectively), the 6-40 Custom Eight (at 140 inches) and 6-45 Deluxe Eight (with a positively massive 145-inch wheelbase).
The new Standard Eight series replaced the Packard Six, which was discontinued in 1929. One of the most popular 1929 Packard models was the 6-33 seven-passenger sedan. It was ideally suited for both family and business use, and while it was not as sporty as a roadster or touring car, it was vastly more practical and comfortable, then and now.
Rolling off the production line in September 1928 this stunning Sixth Series Packard was first registered in Newark, New Jersey on the 10th of August 1929. Subsequently imported to Germany via Belgium in 2000, this remarkable early Packard received an engine overhaul amongst other work.
Offered with a FIVA identity card, the car also comes with 4 winter tyres, depress beam headlights, 2 additional electric cooling fans, removable storage box, map reading Lamp, cowl-lamps, Hella adjustable search lights and wind deflectors on both sides.
Trimmed with sumptuous leather interior, additional desirable optional extras include; central gear shift, tonneau cover, two spare wheels and wooden spoke wheels.
