Vehicle Description

1949 Packard Super Eight

Car History

Right after WWII, buyers wanted oversized family sedans to haul them and the kids around in a stylish and comfortable car, the 1949 Packard filled the bill as it was a roomy, long wheel-base, luxury vehicle.

We have a stunning 1949 Packard Super Eight here at Adventure Classics that is powered by what the owner told us was the original 327 cubic inch, inline 8 cylinder engine, turning out 145 horsepower, and having a "Super" restoration on it too.

Engine & Drivetrain

The entire car has been gone thru front to rear including the original 327 cubic inch, inline 8 cylinder engine, turning out 145 horsepower. That engine was the larger of the two eight-cylinder luxury automobiles produced in Detroit, Michigan.
This powerplant It has been painted the correct green as it sits in a very detailed, clean, and factory looking engine compartment and is mated to a column-shifted 3-speed manual overdrive transmission that gives it the correct look, feel, and performance as it had in 1949.


Driver interior and convenience features of our Packard include the restored front and rear bench seats covered in tan with matching light tan carpet, headliner, and floor mats, stunning dash with its wood inserts, factory gauges, factory Philco AM radio, and added front and rear seatbelts, column-mounted shifter, and ivory controls.

Look in the trunk and you will even find an original wide-whitewall Firestone tire, wheel, and jack.


Our Packard has the great sleek black paint job covering the Briggs bodywork, windshied sunvisor, and is contrasted by the wraparound chrome bumpers with bumper guards, a pair of fog lights, wraparound grille, two full-length trim strips, rear fender skirts, and the Goddess of Speed on the hood.

The 49 rolls on wide whitewalls with each tire is mounted on a chrome wire wheel topped by a factory chrome center.


Packard had one of the most recognized advertising slogans in the automotive industry. "Ask the Man who Owns One."

So if you want rarity, distinction, and classic luxury, this 1949 Packard Super Eight we have here at Adventure Classics should be first on your list to buy.
