A gorgeous Eleventh Series Packard with desirable factory coachwork restored to world-class standards. Exquisite presentation, equally suited for concours or touring .
It is with great pleasure that we offer this striking 1934 Packard 1101-723 Convertible Sedan. This fabulous car wears a concours-quality, nut and bolt, restoration done by Stone Barn Automobile Restoration in Hackettstown, New Jersey. The extensive restoration, completed in the early 2000s, is documented with nearly $150,000 in receipts. When new, the $2,690 convertible sedan was one of the most expensive models in the 1101 range, coming in about $200 shy of the Formal Sedan, and costing more than several of the upmarket Super Eight models. The presentation is worthy of this car’s status in the Packard line, with impeccable paintwork, beautifully crafted coachwork and exquisite detailing.
The color choice suits the coachwork particularly well, with the elegant dark blue subtly highlighting the curves of the body. Paint quality is impeccable, and while the car has seen careful use since it was restored, it has been maintained in excellent condition by its current fastidious owner. Like the paintwork, the brightwork and chrome have been restored to concours standards. The car wears dual side mount spare wheels with full painted steel covers, dual chrome trumpet horns, a Goddess of Speed mascot and a truck rack. It rides on body-color wire wheels, with understated chrome trim rings and correct “Packard Eight” hubcaps. The body is otherwise relatively clean and unadorned, which allows the graceful styling to speak for itself.
