Description for Packard 1940

1940 Packard Model 1807 One-Eighty Formal Sedan Wonderful first-year One-Eighty and desirable Formal body style! Over $60. 00 invested in restoration! Fully rebuilt motor. transmission and overdrive! Full partition with many accessories! One of only 1900 180s built in 1940! CCCA Full Classic! By the early 1940s. Packard had established itself as one of the world’s premier automakers. Continual improvements to drivability and style meant that Packard’s future looked bright…until WWII started. However. 1940 was still good in the financial sense and Packard introduced the new senior Custom One Eighty Series to appeal to the wealthiest automobile buyers. These upscale cars featured a new 356ci L-head Inline 8 engine that utilized aluminum pistons. cast iron head. Stromberg carburetor and produced 160 horsepower! For the first time ever on a production car. air conditioning was optional on the new 180 series and Packard managed to sell 1. 00 of their most extravagant cars in 1940. We are very excited to offer this 1940 Packard Custom One Eighty Series 1807 Formal Sedan. Featuring a 138” wheelbase. this Packard is finished in a classic Black over Gray cloth. with plenty of brightwork throughout both the interior and exterior. This example is still powered by its original sequence- and date-code correct 356ci Inline 8 and 3-speed manual transmission with Borg-Warner overdrive and continues to exude excellence everywhere it goes! Features and options include Super Deluxe heater/defroster. rear heater. dual side-mount spares with hard covers and Packard mirrors. grille guard. “Packard” door sill plates. locking gas cap. rear bumper guards. front visors. Packard Custom radio with rear seat passenger controls and speaker (receiver mounted in the trunk with antenna under the passenger running board). luggage rack and more! The backseat passengers are coddled with footrests. dual vanities. dual cigar lighters and ash trays. grab handles. jump seat. storage compartment. clock and most notably. a roll-up partition window. The car rides on steel wheels with “Packard One-Eighty” hubcaps with trim rings and wrapped in 7. 00-16 Firestone Deluxe Champion gum-dipped wide whitewall tires! The previous Michigan owner purchased the car in the summer of 2014 from a collector in Indiana. This owner spent over $60. 00 to make sure this sedan was in top notch running condition and ready for showing. The straight eight engine was fully rebuilt with new bearings. lifters. valves. valve guides and seats. The steering box was rebuilt. as well as the transmission and the overdrive unit. to ensure this car is reliably capable of modern highway speeds. Most recently appearing at the St. John’s Councours. the indicated mileage of 75. 38 is likely original and the undercarriage presentation will support this. Cosmetically. the paint will shows only minor signs of being used and enjoyed but remained in excellent shape along with the bright work. Inside. the cloth interior is fresh and rips/tears are non-issues. Included with the car is a lug wrench. as well as a Packard service record booklet and postcard. We would be more than happy to answer any additional questions on the car and would encourage any interested parties to call. Thanks for looking!
