Straight Eight: 1952 Packard Sedan

The Packard Motor Car company of Detroit started rolling out cars way back in 1899, but it didn’t go belly up until 1958 when the last badge engineered Studebaker rolled off an assembly line with a Packard badge…not a bad run for the average car company…quick, somebody tell Elon his little startup needs to last till 2064 before we believe it’ll make it!  Find this 1952 Packard Sedan here on eBay bidding for $2026 reserve-not-met with a few hours to go. Tip from Hugh.


 Per the seller:

1952 Packard with the original running straight eight with ultramatic transmission. Transmission was just rebuilt, It was painted last year. The car is about 95% finished. It runs, drives and stops great. New brakes, shocks, brake lines, gas lines, interior, carpet, tires, gas tank was taken to professional rebuilder and does not leak. It is a solid car with all rusted steel replaced with new steel panels. Things needed to finish: Headliner, weatherstripping, Speedometer cable. Gas gauge does not work, I’m not sure why but just kept it full. All lights and blinkers work. This car has been a blessing in my life and I would love to keep it but I am moving and I don’t have any room to store it. If you have any questions give me “Aaron” a call (989) 213-2137
