Packard was never complacent about adopting changes both to recognize market conditions and continuously to improve a product that was already at the top of the luxury field, a philosophy that was true in 1930 when it went straight-eight for its entire model line. The new 7-33's eight displaced 319 cubic inches with 90 brake horsepower at a conservative 3,200 rpm. Packard added a fourth, extra low, speed to the gearbox for difficult conditions and adopted thermostatic radiator shutters to regulate engine temperature. Ten cataloged body styles ranged from a 7-passenger limousine to a sporty roadster and included this attractive 1930 Packard 7-33 enclosed coupe with rumble seat. It was restored about half way through its most recent owners of 45 years of proud ownership and is finished in Stanley Green with black fenders, straw coachline around the black body accent and upholstered in beige cloth with brown leather upholstery in the rumble seat. Disc wheels also coachlined in straw, whitewall tire, Trippe lights, a radiator stoneguard, and rollup rear window are accented by a single rear-mounted spare that emphasizes the clean, sporting lines of the coupe body. The esteem, in which it was held by its long term owner, as well as the quality of its restoration, is reflected in its exemplary condition. It is a CCCA Full Classic (tm) and as such is eligible for the full range of CCCA events and tours in addition to being an unusual and handsome car for family outings.
