What we have here is a 1940 Packard 120 Convertible in mid-restoration that is ready to be completed by the new owner (she was previously restored many years ago). This car has very little rust and is currently finished in red primer so that the buyer can decide on the color. The interior is not leather and could be restored consistent with the exterior color selection - and also in leather, but is quite serviceable AS-IS. Overall, this car is fantastic, rare and ready to meet her new owner.
This 1940 Packard 120 Convertible represents one of the finest designs of any car ever made; she is simple yet elegant and this particular car is side-mounted with covers - beautiful. Mechanically the car is sound; the engine has lots of power and compression, the gearbox has overdrive which is very desirable. The car runs and drives well, the car is solid, the engine pulls strongly, the gears are good and the brakes work as they should. The overdrive solenoid has been replaced but not the relay or the governor; the gas tank has been cleaned, the brakes have been redone, the front clip has been installed using just a few bolts for easy access, the lights are off the car but are in very good condition and ready to install.
The car has a 12 volt electrical system utilizing a device to lower the voltage to 6 volts for the gauges and the solenoid for the overdrive. The wiring is not original but ok however some of it needs to be replaced. The body is sound with very little rust, the original paint was removed and the car is in primer. The chrome is not good on the bumpers but the rest is fine. The molding is not the original type and neither are the louvers. The dash needs paint or wood graining and the paint of the letters on the glass of the instruments is marginal. The top is acceptable but has a rip on the lower left corner. The upholstery is good but not leather.
This car with some TLC would be the dream of any Packard enthusiast so if you think that might be you, call today to discuss a purchase. This is really a beautiful vehicle and a bargain as we have priced her to provide you the best deal on a car of this caliber. If you are a fan of this car, you should act soon as we do not expect it to last long.
