100 HP, 319 cid, L-Head In-Line 8-Cylinder Engine, 4-Speed Transmission Chassis No. 321282 We are quite sure that had you asked the man who originally owned this handsome coupe what he thought of his Packard, he would have raved about its quality, style and powerful engine. This year saw a number of mechanical improvements including the first use of a Stewart-Warner fuel pump and a vacuum operated Bijur lubricating system. Smaller wheels were also used to give the cars a lower profile view and smart new body designs continued to bring the tradition of only the finest coachwork being found on a Packard. Purchased new by a prominent doctor in San Antonio, Texas, this is a rather attractive rumble-seat coupe. A number of years ago it was restored and subsequently was awarded a National First by the AACA, and has won many admiring smiles along the way. Treated to a full restoration a number of years ago, this coupe is loaded with amenities including dual side-mount spare tires protected by chrome plated bands with rear view mirrors on top, dual Pilot Ray driving lights, a chrome plated radiator guard, the "Sliding Boy" chrome mascot and a very unique monogram plate cast in the shape of the radiator grille and mounted to the headlight cross-beam support rod. Mounted to the rear fold-down rack is a full size trunk that is protected with a heavy zippered storage bag, a side access door to the rear compartment for golf clubs or other items needed for an outing and the original cast aluminum steps leading to the rumbleseat. Finished it light tan with dark brown fenders and body highlights, the interior of this car is just as elegant. Seats are covered in tan broadcloth with dark brown piping and in the dash is a full complement of gauges including a Jaeger stem-wound clock and the speed-o-meter and odometer which shows just 2,545 miles, believed to have been logged since this beauty was restored.
