1935 Packard Eight Convertible – Kansas City

Beautiful 1935 Packard, Model #1202, for sale in Kansas City. Recently restored, the vehicle comes equipped with the original Flathead Straight 8 engine and manual 3-speed transmission on the floor.  The exterior is striking with two-tone grey and red paint and dual suicide doors with a factory boot rack, driving lights, steel spoke wheels, whitewall tires.   Interior is equally impressive with restored leather and wood interior that sets off the symmetrical instrument panel.  Currently being offered by seller for $145,000.

The Packard 8 was produced from 1930 – 1938.  The inline eight produced 90 hp but could be upgraded to 110-120 hp.  Not clear whether this example has that upgrade.  Initially priced between $2,450 – $3,250, it was attainable by very few.  Not until the 120 model did the Packard find a broader audience – which may have diminished some of the Packard luster.   No doubt that the Packard brand is associated with luxury and style – this would be a fun cruiser and Concours competitor.   Check out the seller’s listing for full details and contact information:
