This may be ultimate Woodie, a luxurious Packard Eight with finely constructed wood body exterior and interior. Even better, the wood is original, attesting to a life of care and attention rarely shown on wood bodied cars of the Forties but entirely appropriate to this spectacular Packard. Its condition today is consistently maintained and never restored but it still shows well and is thoroughly mechanically sorted so it runs and drives well. It's had a repaint and some chrome has been redone. The interior has been redone and it has new carpets. The dashboard wood graining has been redone to high standards. The body is straight and solid (no small claim on these complex automobiles.) Finished in Maroon with Brown leatherette upholstery and varnished interior panels, with center-hinged doors for easy entry and a marvelous wood paneled rear compartment, it also has an overdrive three-speed transmission, bias ply wide whitewall tires, hubcaps and trim rings. An honest, handsomely maintained, good driving example of a surpassingly rare model, it is the ultimate Woodie.
