This is a gorgeous restored 1941 Packard Super Eight 160 five passenger sedan that has a long history of being a tour veteran. The present owner has 65 cars in his collection and since about 2009 has enjoyed driving this Packard on several CCCA CARavans throughout the US. It has been a terrifically dependable tourer as well as being finished in a stunning color combination.
This Packard was sold new in Denver on April 12, 1941. For many years it was part of the Tom Mix collection in Massachusetts. Mr. Mix had Mercedes dealerships and was a very significant collector of Packards. In his collection was a Darrin Victoria, a 734 Phaeton and a number of other stunning Packards. He had his own restoration facilities and his team set out on a restoration of this 160 Sedan. They completed the car in a beautiful combination of metallic blue and a champagne silver. The chrome is excellent throughout the car and includes the optional front grill guard and the rear trunk guard.
The interior is also stunning in a tan and blue wool broadcloth. The woodgrain is gorgeous throughout, in a grey burl that is a perfect compliment to the wool interior.
The Super Eights all came with Packards venerable nine main bearing straight eight with 356 cu in and an optional three speed overdrive transmission. The overdrive is a touring necessity and makes the car easily cruise along at modern highway speeds (70-75 mph). And the braking is more than ample to give a strong sense of control and confidence, even at the higher speeds. This Packard has been upgraded to the wide white wall radial tires which are far safer and increase the handling substantially.
With dual side mounted spares, the trunk is left wide open for a weeks worth of luggage, and then some!! The heater and defroster and radio are all options making the interior more comfortable for the tours.
