Beautiful for Show and Tour, Great History

$89,800

Harry's Thoughts

This is a wonderful example of an original always-loved senior Packard that has been restored only as needed. While still scoring 96 points at a recent concours, it is really set-up as a touring car.

THE ESSENTIALS

This is a restored only as-needed 1934 Packard Super Eight Model 1104 Club Sedan that is a CARavan veteran as well as a successful show car.  This Packard has never been taken apart and restored, instead, in the words of the previous owners, “it has always been taken care of since new and no owner, including myself, has ever felt the need to restore it.”  This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of the most iconic enclosed Packard’s with terrific provenance and in beautiful condition.  This is an incredibly elegant Club Sedan with its 142-inch wheelbase, long hoodline and close-coupled passenger compartment.

This Club Sedan was bought new in Brooklyn, NY on November 3, 1934.  It’s history is traced back to 1950 with the most notable owner being John Hogg III.  Mr. Hogg was a longtime collector and CCCA member and owned this Club Sedan for 25 years.  The Club Sedans next owner was Gene Nau from Naples, FL who showed it and also participated with the car in the 2013 CCCA Re-Discover America tour from New York to California.  The Club Sedan proved itself a worthy and successful CARavan car, requiring only a new set of tires and a generator rebuild afterwards. Mr. Nau enjoyed the Club Sedan and on October 11, 2013 sold it to its present owner.

The Club Sedan’s present owner has shown and toured with the car over the years.  At the CCCA Grand Classic in Minnesota in August 2, 2014, the Club Sedan earned its National Senior Award No. 3153 with a 96-point win.  The judging sheet is published as part of this listing.

The black livery was repainted many years ago, most likely in the early 1990’s.  It presents itself very well with gorgeous luster and depth.  There are, as you would expect, many touched up chips and a few small areas of cracking (most likely from the factory’s use of lead) and such, but these are only noticeable upon close inspection.  The black livery is complimented with red coachstripes and red wire wheels, including the dual side mounted spares.  The chrome and stainless-steel trim are very good to excellent.  Much of the chrome is original, again reflecting the care this motorcar has received over its lifetime.  The top and glass have been replaced years ago and is in excellent condition.

This Club Sedan is highly accessorized with Trippe Satey Lights, trunk rack with an unrestored trunk, heater, radio and more.  In addition, upgraded accessories include front and rear seat belts, Gear Vendor overdrive, electric fuel pump, dual 6-volt Optima batteries, accessory turn signal lights, and oil filter system.

The interior is simply stunning because of its originality and condition.  The gray wool broadcloth interior is largely original.  The driver’s seat is said to have been reupholstered over the years, but its patina matches perfectly the rest of the upholstery.  There are a few small areas of repairs and there are no stains or other issues.  The carpet appears to have been replaced long ago as well and is in excellent condition.  The dashboard is gorgeous and original, with beautiful faux woodgraining and gorgeous gauges.  The wood trim throughout the interior is in excellent condition and only refinished as-needed.

The Super Eights benefitted from the venerable 384 CID L-head straight eight engine that produced 145 bhp.  The engine was rebuilt about 15,000 miles ago and performs very well today.  The engine and the engine compartment display well for show.

All accessories have been rebuilt as needed, such as the generator, starter, carburetors, etc.  Everything works as it should, including the Bjur lubrication system, vacuum servo-assisted mechanical brakes and variable-pressure shock absorbers.  Included in the purchase is a California Car Cover, the unrestored trunk and a wonderful file history of the Club Sedan.

Interesting Fact: The Packard Super Eight was produced from 1933 to 1951. It is the larger of two eight-cylinder luxury vehicles that were produced by the Packard Motor Car Company in Detroit. The variant that was produced from 1933 to 1936 has become a classic vehicle over the years.   When the Packard Super Eight’s counterpart, the Packard Twelve, was discontinued, a variant known as the Packard Super Eight One-Eighty was released as a top car. This resulted in the Packard Super Eight being renamed to the Packard Super Eight One-Sixty.   Both models use a 160 horsepower straight Eight engine. The Packard Super Eight was offered in a classic two-door model or a four-door sedan. Production continued until 1951 when the Super Eight was renamed to 400. This classic vehicle is still pursued by many car collectors all around the world!
