Packard Super 8 Sedanca De Ville 1937

Packard Super 8 Sedanca De Ville 1937

A very rare 1937 Packard Super Eight Sedanca de Ville Town Car with coachwork by Brewster.

This is a beautiful 8 cylinder 5.2 Litre limousine with independent front suspension, hydraulic brakes and fully synchromesh transmission, was compatible and far ahead of any Rolls-Royce of its time.

Always built to the highest standards, the Packard was unquestionably one of the finest American cars of the pre-war era.

1937 was the year for the introduction of the 5.2 Litre engine, with a cylinder bore dimension of 81mm and a 127mm stroke.

Fully restored in 1981 to its former glory and winning the senior national AACA and Meadow Brook concours event in 1982 and 1983, this magnificent vehicle attained 96 points out of 100 at the C.C.C.A. Grand Classic at Seven Springs, Pennsylvania.

This stunning limousine was kept in in a private collection for many years and is now a treasured edition to the RR Elite collection.

Finished in platinum and burgundy with a black leather roof, side irons and a black canvas covering for the Sedanca section, this car really takes you back to an elegant bygone era.

The car is also fitted with white wall tyres, twin side mounts, chrome bumpers, running boards, two occasional seats and a retractable glass division.

A perfect choice for that vintage style wedding.
