1942 Packard 110 Convertible CoupeFull Restoration, Well Equipped, Rare!
This is a beautifully restored 1942 Packard 110 Convertible Coupe that is ready for local and regional shows and regular use. The 1942 Packard’s have many features that are unique for its year. Features such as the wheel covers, starting procedures, door handles and even the vacuum operated power convertible top. This example is delightful to drive and is simply gorgeous to admire.
American automobiles from 1942 are incredibly rare since the US entered the war and all industrial efforts pivoted to helping with the war effort. Packard’s 1942 models commenced on August 25, 1941 and ended abruptly on February 7, 1942. This Packard was sold new in Flint, MI at the MC Davis Packard dealership on August 21, 1943, a full year and a half after it was built.
The livery is stunning in Cadet Cream (Paint Code 4492) with the red accented wheels with wide white walled tires, beautiful chrome throughout and its black canvas convertible top with red binding. The paint is in excellent condition and is polished well for show. There are only a couple very small areas where the body prep could have been improved for concours judging, but overall it is beautifully restored. The body work and paint were done by William Link of Scottsdale. This example is well accessorized with a spotlight and the optional trunk guards. The running boards look great in a black Rhino finish as opposed to the original rubber. All the stainless steel trim is well polished and also look great. The Goddess of Speed hood ornament also looks great and as-new.
The interior features maroon leather interior throughout. The maroon leather, carpet and interior as a whole are in excellent condition and are done with the proper materials. The seats are very comfortable and the deluxe steering wheel is wrapped in leather and is comfortable to use. The interior was finished as a Deluxe interior and it really looks fantastic. All of the maroon dash plastic is in excellent condition, and the radio is in excellent condition, although no antenna is connected leaving it non-functional. All of the instrumentation works well with the exception of the clock.
The black canvas convertible top can be manually raised and lowered. It is a vacuum operated power top that can be rebuilt and made functioning. Rebuilding the components costs about $3,000. The canvas top and the chrome top frame are all in very nice condition. It would benefit from a convertible top boot cover.
Under the hood is the 245 CID straight six cylinder Packard engine that delivers 105 hp, an increase over the prior year. With its 122′ wheelbase, the 110 performs well and handles great. The three-speed transmission shifts smoothly. Every part of this Packard has been restored. The chassis is beautifully detailed and would perform well in shows.
