For Sale: 1939 Packard Six in Staunton, Illinois

Vehicle Description

This Packard sports a 4 sedan steel body dressed in black with a grey interior. This example is powered by its original 245c.i. 6 cylinder engine mated to a 3 speed selective synchromesh manual transmission. This is an unrestored original survivor car that still rides like it is on clouds. With 100 horsepower at 3,200 rpms, it had a lot of pep for its time period. Very straight body with some light patina and a well kept original interior showing minor wear for its age. The wood grain dash is in very good shape and rear suicide doors open and function properly. Nothing get quite more classic and elegant than this Packard wrapped in wide white wall tires. This one is an excellent car for your collection or perfect option for a restoration. The Packard Six was a series of luxury automobiles built over several generations by Packard from 1913 until 1947. The name was originally used to describe the car in general terms, while Series numbers were initially used and changed every year to denote wheelbases, then the number classification changed as market conditions changed to keep competitive with other luxury brands. Packard reintroduced the six-cylinder model as the Packard Fifteenth Series Six Model 115-C, a lower priced companion to the One-Twenty.[1] The first model year was 1937-1942 where it used a 237 cu in (3,884 cc) L-head engine, and was called the Packard One-Ten beginning in 1940. It was introduced as an affordable middle-class family car competing with the Oldsmobile L-Series and DeSoto sixes and the retail price for a 4-door sedan was US$895 ($16,870 in 2021 dollars while the station wagon was listed at US$1,295 ($24,410 in 2021 dollars). When production resumed after the war in the fall of 1945, the model year 1946 resumed with pre-war designs, and all models with the larger 245.3 cu in (4,020 cc) L-head engine were now called the Packard Clipper, with designations of Clipper Six. The listed retail price of the Clipper Series 2100 4-door Touring Sedan Model 1682 was US$1730 ($24,040 in 2021 dollars.
