Vehicle Description

1938 Packard Super Eight Roadster owned by my father, "Bunty" Scott-Moncrieff and myself for past 47 years. Supplied new by Leonard Williams of Mayfair, the Packard Agents, the car is fitted with the Marchal headlights which point to it being one of the Packard's supplied to the United States Embassy during the tenure of Joseph Kennedy. After a short spell in wartime London it found its way to Derbyshire and was discovered in storage by my father in the 1970s. After a complete rebuild the car was extensively rallied in Europe and the Balkans over the next twenty years. Entered into the first revival of the Peking to Paris Rally, it never competed due to ill health. Equipped with overdrive and converted to twelve volt electrics, the straight eight engine is as smooth as ever. As it approaches its eightieth birthday this is still a thoroughly usable car which is one of the very few roadsters built with RHD. A real eye-catcher and a peace of Anglo-American history, I will sorely miss it, but it is time for its next adventure.
