The Classic Car gallery is proud to offer this absolutely stunning 1948 Packard Super 8 convertible. This beautiful car underwent a full frame off restoration in 1995 by Frank Habricht of Palm Beach Florida. At the time, the original numbers matching straight 8 engine was fully rebuilt, as was the original 3 speed manual transmission. The interior is like new, with buttery smooth leather, and new carpets. The car was driven less than 3,000 miles on the restoration, and was mothballed in the late 90s. When we bought the car, we had to install all new brake hardware, including, drums, wheel cylinders, and brake master cylinder. In addition we installed a new carburetor, and bled and recharged the unique hydraulic system. The convertible top is as new, and extends and retracts with authority. The radio and the clock do not work. The odometer shows 49,000 miles, but we do not believe this to be accurate. Though the electrical systems work, the car includes a brand new wiring harness from Wiring Unlimited and 2 car covers. The car drives as well as she looks. This is undoubtedly one of the finest Packards available. Own a beautiful piece of automotive Americana.
