This is a beautiful 45,000 mile 1948 Packard Station Sedan that has
been in California and restored only as-needed. The interior
upholstery is original and in excellent overall condition with only
a couple of small blemishes. The wood is also in excellent
condition inside and out. This Station Sedan has been shown and is
also set up perfectly for touring, with overdrive and radial tires.
The Cavalier Maroon livery has been done beautifully. It has been
professionally polished for show and has brilliant luster. There
are no chips in the common high used areas. The original wood is in
gorgeous condition. This Station Sedan obviously spent the years in
a garage based on the pristine original interior and the condition
of the wood. There are absolutely no signs that we see of any
replacement wood and the gaps between the joined areas look
excellent. The wide white wall radials are the perfect choice for
these Packards for improved handling, braking and safety. The hub
caps have been upgraded to the senior cloisonn center medallions.
This Packard is fully accessorized with the iconic sun visor,
Packard branded front fog lamps, the rare cormorant hood ornament
that lights up, dual Packard logoed spot lights and a rear reverse
light. The interior continues the picture of a well loved original
car with its gorgeous original tan vinyl interior. The seats are
still very comfortable and as you can see from the photo gallery,
are in excellent condition. We even asked our upholstery contractor
to give a second opinion and he agreed that the seats, door panels
and headliner are original. Of course, the carpeting is not
original to the car. The dash is beautiful and all the faux wood
painted door surrounds and dash are very nice. The instruments are
clear and show no signs of being over exposed to the elements.
Importantly, the chrome and pot metal on the interior are in
beautiful condition. Everything feels nice and tight as only low
mileage original cars can. The engine compartment is overall nicely
detailed. The engine is a slightly different shade of green, so we
did not touch up the engine itself. It looks very nice. The
ancillary components are nicely painted and the correct bolts are
used in the body panel sections, which often are replaced with
modern bolts. The wiring harness is original in the engine
compartment with some fraying, but the electronics work well
throughout the wagon. Overall, the engine compartment looks nice
and would be fine at most car shows. This Packard was recently
displayed at the Concours on the Avenue in Carmel and has been
invited to be shown at the Quail A Motorsports Gathering. But this
is really a wonderful woodie to enjoy and use on tours. With the
overdrive and radial tires, this is set up for driving and having
fun. The Chassis has at one time been cleaned and painted and is in
touring condition. At one point sections of the floorboards have
been replaced as you can see in the photo gallery. We have tested
the rocker panels and fenders for any excess body filler with our
"The Filler Detector" and it checked out fine within normal limits
(see the video in the video gallery showing the results). This
Packard comes complete with extra sets of keys, the Owner's Manual
and a Shop Manual. We have priced this Station Sedan well. The NADA
Values show Average Retail at $124,300. For more information and
details, please call, text or email Harry Clark at 1.602.245.7200

inspected at our Phoenix showroom.
