1940 Packard 110 Business Coupe – Gardener, KS

Seller offering a 1940 Packard 110 Business Coupe with 91,482 miles for $26,500.  This example appears to have undergone a restoration.  Sharp color combination with Ivory exterior and wide white wall tires over grey mohair interior.  The 110 is equipped with a 245 cubic inch 6-cylinder engine and 3-speed manual transmission mounted on the column.   While the straight-6 is a smaller engine than the V8’s other Packards were equipped with, it reportedly produces enough torque and power for a sport ride  Nice wood grain dashboard and window trim.  Seller says the vehicle runs and drives nicely.

The 110 was Packard’s attempt at a more affordable vehicle during the great depression.   Built on a shorter 122″ wheelbase than more expensive models, the 110 was available in coupe, sedan, station wagon, and convertible models.   This 2-door coupe is the “Business Coupe” which did not have a rear seat. In 1940, 62,300 110’s were sold in the United States.   We like the long hood, sloping lines, and split rear window.

The interior is basic uniquely Packard.  The wood trimmed dash and soft mohair seats, walls, and ceiling are from a different era.   Did anyone else notice the large airplane wall art in the rear of the garage?
