Introduced in 1924 models, the Packard straight-eight engine marked the beginning of a new era for both its esteemed manufacturer and the American prestige automobile. Led by the legendary Col. Jesse Vincent, Packard engineers had created a powerful, durable and nearly vibration-free inline eight. Combining this superb engine with the styling verve and elegance that set the marque apart in the later 1920s, the Packard Eight fairly defined the attributes of the cars we know today as Classics. In 1931, further improvements were made; the Eights adopted the valve and manifold setup of the 734 Speedster and in doing so broke the magic 100 horsepower mark. The 833 Phaeton is on a 134.5 wheelbase. It has a three speed gear box. The Eighth series models are equipped with a vacuum-operated Bijur chassis lubrication system. Under the bonnet is an 8 cylinder engine that produces 100 hp which was an increase in power by 10 over the prior year. The Standard 8 engines have a displacement size of 319 cubic inches. There are 11 body style options on the 833. This car benefited from a recent frame off restoration. It is finished in cream with burgundy belt molding and beautiful disc wheels, and a matching burgundy chassis. It has an electric fuel pump for maximum driving efficiency. It will easily cruise at 65 mph. The paint, chrome, top and interior are flawless. It comes with a complete set of side curtains. Rather than twin side mounts, there are two spares on the rear which give this car a beautiful look. This car is ready for any show, concours or touring event.
