  • Packard would introduce its 8th series of automobiles for 1931 on August 14th 1930. The Standard Eight models available were the 826 with a 127.5” wheelbase and the 833 model featuring the 134.5” wheelbase. The designation “Custom” was dropped for the Packard Eight lineup and then became referred to as the “Deluxe” models, which were divided into the 840 and 845 series cars with an imposing 140.5” wheelbase and 145.5” wheelbase, respectively. The Packard Deluxe Eight engine was the 385ci unit that developed 120hp and was mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox which allowed for more spirited driving. The massive power plant featured nine main bearings and was so well balanced that salesmen were known to boast about the smoothness by balancing a nickel on the cylinder head with the engine idling. With the Deluxe models taking the top of the Eight line up, the most astute customers often longed after chauffer-driven models such as body 491; the Deluxe Eight Sport Phaeton. This stunning dual cowl featured a rear flip up tonneau with a foldable rear windshield for open driving pleasure. If inclement weather developed the convertible top also served as a support for the removable side curtains. Priced at $3,790 when new, this luxury depression era motorcar was seldom seen. Only 97 examples were built during 1931 and with few known to exist today, examples are highly sought-after by collectors.
    The 1931 Packard Deluxe Eight Sport Phaeton featured here is finished in stunning all black sitting on top of a beautiful apple green chassis which is accented by a wonderfully black leather interior with a matching top and side curtains. This magnificent automobile has been collector owned since the 1950’s and was subject to a comprehensive two year, body-off-frame restoration before it was shown at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Still presenting in Concours restored condition, this Packard would make an incredible showing at future AACA or CCCA events. We are proud to offer this incredible Packard to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who understands the provenance of this legendary American marque and desires only the best the market can offer.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com


    * Rates vary depending on year of car, length of term and credit score.

    Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase.

Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).


    In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle. If you deem the vehicle is not as represented upon personal inspection, we will not only refund your deposit, but will also reimburse your airfare at the cost of a coach ticket. Feedback must be left at the time of delivery upon final inspection.


    Pertaining to non-eBay winners: Anyone who has provided a deposit but whose purchase is still pending, please note that said vehicle will not be held and is subject to being sold at any time until all contingencies are removed and the purchase order is signed.
