For Sale: 1929 Packard Custom Eight in St. Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

1929 PACKARD 640  SUPER EIGHT PHAETON

The car was reported to have been sold new to a Mr. Fairchild of Pennsylvania and held by his family until 1964.  It was restored in 1964 by his son and driven on the famous Glidden Tour.  It was sold to a known collector in Indiana in 1994 and I purchased the Packard in 2014.   Note the 1962 Glidden Tour sticker on the windshield.  This is a real veteran tour car.!
The older restoration has held up very well and the Packard can now be driven on any current Tour with confidence.  The straight eight  engine  performs  extremely well as expected of a Packard.   From 2014 until the present time, it has been maintained and upgraded by restorer Bob McKeown in Ohio.  The focus was to make it “Tour-ready” and retain the charm of the older restoration. Items replaced included the wiring harness, heavy duty battery cables, added turn signals in the running lights, a rebuilt water pump, radiator, etc. etc.  The list is long and I would be happy to discuss it with any potential buyer.  
As you can see in the pictures, the Packard has a DUAL WINDSHIELD, new side curtains, a chrome stone guard and a compliment of period driving lights, sliding boy hood ornament and wind-wings.   
A personal inspection will also disclose how well the paint and chrome have been maintained over the years.  Priced to sell at $89,500.
