NC 28269Say the name Packard among car guys and youll get two likely responses: smiles from the guys who know the name. and looks of bewilderment from the guys who dont. If youre a Packard fan. then you already realize that cars like this 1950 Packard are very special machines that drive superbly and offer a level of quality few other automakers could match. And if you dont know the name Packard. well. maybe this car will fill in the details for you. The fastback coupe. or club coupe. body style on this 23rd Series Packard. is the perfect antidote to the frumpy styling of the immediate post-war era. Smooth. sleek. and very streamlined. it offers a glimpse into the future with a handsome period twist. Accentuating the cars aerodynamic profile with two-tone white and blue paint is a smart idea and the colors are period-correct so theres nothing to distract you from the clean shape. Its not a show car. but the paint and good panel fit mean that youll never shy away from a cruise-in with it. and with exemplary road manners. youll probably start looking for new spots to attend just so you have someplace to drive. Restrained use of chrome and stainless was a hallmark of Packard design. and the brightwork on this car is in decent shape. perhaps even original. from the stylized hood ornament. to the distinctive Packard grille. to the wrap-around rear bumper. Luxurious yet conservative interiors were the name of the game for Packard. and this car sports gray cloth bench seats. what appear to be original door panels. and a simple dashboard layout to make driving the car easy. The gauges are arranged in two round pods holding the speedometer and clock. with auxiliary gauges tucked in between. all visible through the spokes of the very cool steering wheel. This car is equipped with Packards first automatic transmission. a 2-speed unit called the UltraMatic that works as advertised. Secondary controls are arrayed under the dash with big ivory-colored knobs. and with the 12-volt conversion. the original gauges have been supplanted by auxiliary dials tucked in underneath. Theres also an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit neatly installed in the center of the dash. although the unique vertically-oriented Packard AM radio is still in its slot. The back seat is spacious enough for full-sized adults. and despite the fastback profile. the trunk is spacious and includes a full-sized spare tire. The 288 cubic inch straight-8 engine features nine main bearings and impeccable smoothness. as youd expect from the biggest name in inline eights. It wont win any drag races. but theres a swell of torque at any speed. and the automatic transmission needs only to get into high range and stay there. letting the engines low-RPM grunt do all the work. As I mentioned. it has been upgraded to 12 volts. so theres a modern alternator tucked down low. and newer wiring throughout to accommodate the increased voltage. The original downdraft carburetor with oil bath air cleaner still manages the fuel. and the single exhaust system has a pleasant 8-cylinder hum thats totally appropriate. The unrestored undercarriage shows off years of clean living with surface scale and grease. but no glaring issues. suggesting this car has always been a favorite. Stock steel wheels and hubcaps are surrounded by period-correct wide whites. This Packard represents a lot of car for the money and the attractive (and somewhat rare) body style certainly helps.
