Cars like this 1934 Packard once were the standard. Back in the Fifties and early Sixties they were just old cars, twenty or twenty-five years past their prime. Today finding one in this condition is an event worth writing up in newspapers and blogs. The '34 Packard’s are rightly regarded as the standard among pre-war classic Packard’s and this may be poster child for them, a good running, good driving car that runs great, drives well and needs -- basically -- nothing to be used and enjoyed. Its Off-White paint job with Grey fenders was done a while (OK, a long while) ago to standards that applied when the Clintons were still in law school. The interior has been reupholstered, but the door panels, interior trim and headliner are probably original. What's important is that the doors close with a solid authority that communicates both in sound and feel the solidity that made Packard's reputation for quality. A Standard 8, its 319 cubic inch straight eight makes 120hp. It is equipped with wide whitewalls on Red wire wheels with chrome trim rings, dual side-mounts inside metal enclosures and a luggage trunk. Overall this is a good quality car that has never been restored or apart. Its cosmetics are weak. The chrome is dull but not rusty, pitted or dented in any significant way. In fact, it's a time warp to the used car lots of the early post-WWII years when big, unstreamlined cars like this went begging while returning GIs spent their mustering out pay on envelope bodied Cadillacs, Fords, Chryslers and Hudsons. They didn't know what they were missing, but this is a chance to recapture the experience."
