Description of 1949 Packard Super Eight Deluxe 23rd Series

For auction is a gorgeous 1949 23rd Series Packard Super Deluxe.This car featuresthe egg crate grille of the higher-end models, the lower end cars just had horizontal bars. Also included on this more expensive model were the electromatic clutch and overdrive, which is very nice for long distance trips. The car was restored about 10 years ago and has lived a pampered life ever since, always garage kept and never driven inthe rain or snow. Not a speck of rust to be found on this car, anywhere!The wood grain was re-done, new interior, carpet, paint, bumpers re-chromed, and mechanicals gone through. This car fires right up and drives like a dream! Heat works great as well. Included are a set of NOS fender skirts purchased from Max Merritt, new owner may install them if desired. Original size battery hold-down included, battery tray was eaten away by old leaky batteries and probably should be replaced if you intend on using an original style long-case battery in the future.
