A lovely 11th Series Packard featuring the factory’s elegant 5-passenger sedan coachwork. Rarely seen restored to such a level and winner of an AACA Senior National First Prize. Well-maintained and gracefully matured restoration, ideal for CCCA CARavans, or relaxed touring with friends and family.
Equipped with Packard’s handsome five-passenger sedan coachwork, this 1934 model 1100-703 is the recipient of a very high-quality restoration. While this attractive body style was one of the most popular in its day, many have been sacrificed through time by restorers working on open roadsters and convertibles. It is quite rare to encounter an 1100 sedan so thoughtfully and lovingly restored as this car. While the restoration is older, the 1997 AACA Senior National First Prize badge underscores the quality of its detailing and presentation. Finished in classic black with straw yellow wheels and coach lines, this charming Packard has an understated presence. While the restoration has mellowed with time, it remains quite attractive. The black paintwork is in fine order all around, though some minor imperfections are noted upon inspection. Plating on the bumpers, headlamps, radiator shell, and other body fittings is excellent, with a uniform finish consistent with the restoration’s age. Dual side-mount spare wheels feature body-color metal covers, and a period-style trunk rests on the trunk rack, complete with a custom upholstered cover. The 11th Series’ fully skirted fenders, lower ride height, and raked tilt-open windscreen give this sedan a distinctly elegant profile.
