Packard Super / Super Deluxe 8 convertible coupe series 2332, Black, for sale in Volo, Illinois, for $54,500.
The Packard Super Eight was trimmed somewhat like lower series cars. It shared the same horizontal grille, "goddess of speed"hood ornament and a chrome molding below the windows that stopped at the rear fender center. However, it had a slightly longer bodyside molding that overlapped the taillamp housings. The super deluxe was a new model, approximating a custom eight. For example, if had front and rear eggcrate grilles; cast chromium extensions from the upper belt modling to windshield wipers; bullet-type bumper guards; pelican hood ornament; and an ivory-colored tenite steering wheel with plated inlaid handgrips. Seats were upholsterd in rich, pin striped wool cloth with bolster-type back rests and door panels.
The instrument board, upper seatback panels and window frames had a woodgrain finish. Standard equipment included fender shrouds; wheel trim rings; day/night rearview mirror; Select-o-Matic spring cushions and added acoustical insulation. The convertible victoria was appointed in similar fashion, but limousines had the standard super-type bar grille.
This stunning Packard convertible was gifted with a professional body up restoration. Mirror finish black on a lasor straight body with red leather interior and red wool carpet. Engine and drive train recently tune and gone thru as needed. Runs and drives excellent, and the entire undercarriage cleaned and painted. This is a rare packard being one of 671 built in 1949. A beautiful investment-grade Texas Packard.
