Packard built 26,070 Standard Eights on the 126 1/2 inch short wheelbase 626 chassis in 1929, a prodigious number of luxury cars costing over $2,000 even in the fading years of the Roaring Twenties. With its 90 horsepower 319 cubic inch straight eight engine and three-speed transmission the 626 had more than adequate performance and made an eloquent statement of quality, comfort and performance. This 1929 Packard 626 Convertible Coupe has received a Concours-quality restoration with rich black paint, subtle red coachlines, tan leather upholstery and a black cloth top that offers its occupants three-position flexibility: fully closed, fully folded or open over the front seat. Equipment includes Packard's distinctive standard disc wheels with chrome lock rings, black wall tires, dual side-mounts with mirrors, radiator stone guard, Trippe lights, "Donut Chaser" radiator mascot, trunk rack, and a rumble seat. The interior is accented with deeply varnished wood instrument panel, cowl molding and window garnishes that beautifully accent the tan leather upholstery and trim panels and a lovely marbled glass shift knob. It was delivered on May 31, 1929 to C.N. Rockwell by Packard's Boston distributor and is a CCCA National First Prize (#1579) winner that has been maintained in Concours condition and will still reward its next owner with admiration from spectators and judges. It is a gorgeous automobile and one rarely seen, particularly in such carefully restored and maintained condition.
