1941 Packard Touring Sedan
This 1941 Packard 120 Touring Sedan is about as cool as a vintage car can be, and looks for all the world like it's rolled right off of a pre-WWII movie poster. Pull up to your destination in this classic and it's sure to cause mass whiplash among even the most seasoned of car enthusiasts and, with just a little over 10,000 miles on its build, it looks and runs great, and is well-equipped for real world driving.
From front to back, this Packard impresses. The three-part front grille sitting at the front of the tapered hood, the generously-sized fog lights looming just above an inspired front bumper and flaring fenders on all four corners are just some of the styling cues that made the nameplate a symbol of luxury for decades. Its burgundy and beige color scheme looks great and carries a strong shine that, combined with this Packard's off the charts curb appeal, really draws you in. It's a lengthy, regal looking car and its gracefully shaped body panels all line up well - giving this ultra-classic a very straight, roadworthy appearance and creating the impression that this '41 didn't merely survive all those turbulent years that followed its released, but actually thrived until its thorough restoration brought it to its current stellar condition. There's plenty of trim featured here on all four fenders, on each side of the prominent hoodline, partitioning the windshield and surrounding the 8 windows of the cabin - and it's all in very clean condition.
Climbing inside is downright transformative. You'll find yourself surrounded by a taupe cloth interior that represents a very fitting and well-crafted refurbishment. The front and back bench seats are plush and broad right away you'll see that they offer plenty of comfort for even long journeys and the door panels are well-fitted and accurate recreations of the originals. Beyond the meticulously restored stock steering wheel, the dash looks outstanding, with its ivory-colored instrument panel and glove box insert matched by the row of control knobs sitting just below. An underdash air conditioning system sits in its own ivory colored enclosure and blends in well with its surroundings to up this Packard's comfort level during every day driving, and a duo of aftermarket gauges sit off to the side to keep an accurate read on motoring conditions. The trunk area in back is as clean as you could want, with its floor and inner wheel wells both lined with fresh carpet and a great looking white-walled spare sitting at attention in its proper vertical position.
The 282 cubic inch straight 8 sitting in the tapered engine bay is the same one this venerable sedan started life with more than 75 years ago and combines with a 3-speed manual transmission that's been there right alongside it the whole time - a car of this era featuring an all original drivetrain puts it in very select company and both components were overhauled just 1500 miles ago and are performing at their best. An array of surrounding parts have either been replaced or updated to give this Packard a reassuring level of dependability, including the addition of an alternator and conversion to a 12-volt electrical system, and a new steering box, front coil springs and water pump. The transmission now features overdrive to up its game on the highway. This seldom-encountered and very well restored classic sits on a set of very clean stock 15" Packard rims, wrapped with new white walled Diamond Back classic radials.
There aren't many cars on the road that can offer anything resembling the combination of gawk-inducing presence and strong running condition of this 1941 Packard 120 Touring Sedan. Call today!
