A stunning example of this rare and highly desirable body style on the Super 8 chassis. Impeccably restored and beautifully prepared, ready for show or touring.
This stunning 1934 1104 Super Eight is an outstanding example of Packard’s finest, fitted with rare dual cowl Sport Phaeton coachwork and fully restored to a very high standard. Packard’s in-house design number 761 was distinguished from the standard Phaeton by the addition of a cowling and windscreen fitted over the rear passenger compartment, the Sport Phaeton has a decidedly more purposeful and sporting appearance, and sitting atop the 142” wheelbase chassis, has incredible presence as well. The Sport Phaeton was available only via special order through the Packard catalog, and it is believed that no more than five were built. Finished in triple black with red highlights, this is a beautifully restored, magnificently presented and highly desirable automobile.
Recently part of a large collection of significant prewar automobiles, this car benefits from meticulous care and maintenance. The coachwork has been fully restored and remains in outstanding condition with beautiful paintwork atop excellent body panels. The all-black body is highlighted with subtle red coach stripes, red wheels with wide-whitewall tires, accented with finely judged chrome adornments. This being a high-specification Super Eight, it is very well equipped with numerous accessories and fittings. From the front, it features dual Pilot-Ray driving lamps, a Packard Cormorant mascot, and chrome trumpet horns. Dual side-mount spare wheels are encased in body-colored covers and a pair of C.M. Hall spot lamps are fitted to the cowl. In the rear, a color-keyed metal trunk rides on a factory trunk rack, which features its own built-in bumper. The chrome plating has been restored to a concours-quality standard and remains in excellent order.
