1930 7-45 sedan. Only one known?

Recommended Posts

A member has recently purchased this 1930 Packard Model 7-45 sedan. He is not aware of any others than exist, but would certainly like to find out. If any others are known, please let us know.

A very handsome car.  Looks like it may have originally come with some of the early safety glass, which tends to yellow over time....great find!

 There is a dark blue 30 745 4 window Club Sedan floating around but this car is a 6 window. What makes the owner think it's the only example left? Oh it is an outstanding survivor for sure! Here is my unrestored original including the original paint 31 826 model. It's been in my family since the early 60s.

Your 8-26 Packard was originally all black when new, according to several NJ old-timers who remember the car in the early 1960's. 

   Nonsense, Balderdash, Gibberish, Rubbish, Silliness, Hooey, Baloney, Blarney.... This car is 2 tone Pewter Pot over Nassek Diamond Gray with what Packard called "Tinting Blue Deep # 38" to give it that blue tint and the fenders are black. I have the title dating way before the early 1960s with that color combo, not black. Whoever told you that is incorrect. I would be interested in hearing some names. Do you know who owned this car for the last 60 years and who owned it before my uncle? I know who he bought the car from. Do you have some names? You could be thinking of a different car.

 'Don't be a luddy-duddy! Don't be a mooncalf! Don't be a jabbernowl! You're not those, are you?'  I have a Black seven passenger  original 833, perhaps it is this one that the "ex perts" remember.

Godfrey Daniels, W.C. would be proud!  Mother of pearl.......

 

Nice to see these cars coming out of hiding, so to speak.  In reality, there are very few "one of a kind" cars, regardless of what many owners think.  This is a big country, and there are still cars hiding out there collecting dust......

That's why we say, "known to exist," as opposed to, "only xx exist." The gentleman who owns the car that I posted in the original post is not stating that it is the ONLY one that exists. Merely that it is the only one that he knows of. He would like to find out if more exist.

Understood, I agree with those semantics, West.....

 

I never use phrases like that because of exactly what you are saying.  Better to say "1 of 1", "1 of 2", etc relating to what was built than trying to guess what still exists.

As Trimacar stated, "This is a big country, and there are still cars hiding out there collecting dust......"  A perfect example that I just saw this AM on the Packard Club website under Packard vehicles for sale is a 1928 443 Series Packard Club Sedan, non running, but in great condition for only $20K, covered in dust, but appearing to be in good condition.  So, yes, they are out there!

A good cleaning and a coat of polish and wax will help keep that original paint in good condition. Leaving an original car dirty like that is not a good idea. the dirt attracts moisture and that can cause surface damage and rust. Especially where 85 plus year old paint is concerned. Not being critical just don't want to see a great car damaged.
