Among sophisticated collectors the most sought of all cars are those which have never been apart, nor needed to be. When one of those is found which has sporting, open coachwork the stars, planets, sun and moon are in alignment. That's what this Packard represents, and it is the most desirable and attractive open Coupe Roadster body as well. The 1941 Connecticut motor vehicle sticker and World War II "A" gasoline ration sticker strongly suggest that it was put away during or just after the war. The old repaint is still shiny. The interior is aged. The engine appears to have had some recent work based both on the freshly repainted cylinder head and the fact that the Packard runs well. It is equipped with 12-cylinder bumpers -- a factory option on the Eights -- Trippe auxiliary lights, rumble seat, trunk rack and dual enclosed side-mount spares. Finished in Slate Grey set off by Red wire wheels with hubcaps, trim rings and wide whitewall tires, the interior is lighter Dove Grey leather and the top is Tan cloth, a livery that complements the flowing, attractive lines of the Coupe Roadster coachwork. A simply marvelous relic of an earlier day, it will be welcome anywhere. It will be marveled at by onlookers and envied by other Packard owners who spent tens of thousands of dollars on restorations that this beautiful 1936 Packard Standard Eight Coupe Roadster has never needed.
