1946 Packard, Clipper DeluxeClub Sedan, Rare Fastback, CA car since new, 288 cu in, Rare!
SOLD to Pasadena, CA!! This is a very rare California rust-free 1946 Packard Clipper Deluxe Club Sedan.
We love the sexy and sleek styling of the Club Sedans. And this one is painted in a very striking two-tone of Laguna Maroon metallic complimented with a French Gray metallic on the upper section. We especially love the skirted fenders and the sun visor. Giving this the classic Packard look for the post-War period.
Most of the chrome has been re-plated and looks great. The two rear bumper wings could benefit from re-plating, otherwise the cosmetics are very nice. This is really a tour car that would be welcomed at most all car shows and regional concours events. But it is not meant to be a show car. This is a nice driving Packard that is meant to be driven and enjoyed. The odometer is showing 30,000 miles.
This was sold new in 1946 in Los Angeles by the famous Earl C Anthony dealership. It stayed in California through its life until we purchased it a few months ago. The previous owners restored much of the car, rebuilding the 288 cu in straight eight and doing a cosmetic restoration.
The interior is done very well in modern gray materials. The look is great and it is very practical for touring and use. For show it is not the correct wool broadcloth, but no one but a Packard guru would likely know the difference anyway! The door surrounds are still in the original form and need to be refinished, most likely in the body color (similar to the dashboard). These are incredibly rare, especially the Club Sedans.
More details will be coming. The Packard is in our Phoenix showroom and is available for inspection. For more information, please call or text Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
