1935 Packard 8 Victoria Cabriolet   

Ex Pebble Beach winner

Description

The extremely elegant appearance of this pre-war Packard amply explains its popularity among the rich and famous during the golden 1930s the world over, and nowhere more so than in its native America, where the choice was Düsenberg or Packard.

Already equipped with an 8 cylinder engine of 4.6 litres, providing a decent 120 HP, this car is no exception. Mated to a 3-speed sychromesh gearbox, four hydraulically operated brakes, the car was easy to handle and drive and due to its relatively light steering was the women`s choice of the period. Today such a gem is very rare, especially in such wonderful condition as 807294, a post 1. place Pebble Beach winner, is presented.

Most likely the specification of this Victoria Cabriolet was one of the special ordered cars at Packard, and we can’t say with any degree of certainty whether another version even exists. All of its body parts are signed. 

This beautiful Cabriolet with 2 covered spare wheels to its left and right side, is definitely a collectors’ item, and certainly represents a rare opportunity on the open market.

It comes with German road papers and TÜV to 2017. Not to be missed.
