  1. Pending something happening in the exchange process - this car is sold. I appreciate the assistance, support and comments of the folks on this forum.
  2. Unless something goes awry in the exchange process, this car has been sold. It is going to an individual and his dad in MD who will complete the assembly - very happy for them and the sedan. I appreciate everyone's insight and comments. Pete
  3. @West Peterson and @franklinman. I have added shots of the side mount fenders and interior. The fenders are primed and should require minimal prep before final paint.
  4. This is a testament in a thread on another site about my fathers reputation in the Packard restoration space... http://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=21359&forum=16
  5. Thank you for the referral @Ozstatman! I believe the gentleman who posted the comment is Ross Miller, a fellow Packard guru with my Dad. http://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=21359&forum=16
  6. Thank you @John_S_in_Penna for your very kind words regarding my dad. He indeed had a passion for Packards and understood them extremely well. He also enjoyed writing for publications such as the AACA magazines and sharing his knowledge.
  7. Thank you @Marty Roth I appreciate the clarification as I was not aware that the one sold at Hershey was a 533 model. It really didn't clearly state that in any of the materials that I read, so I will take your word for it. I appreciate the input and clarification. Yes, the reserve was much higher on BAT as you can probably figure out from my asking price here. Hope this helps.
  8. Great idea. Will do later today. Got to get my son graduated today! Added on 12/15.
  9. Thank you @auburnseeker. My dad restored several national prize winners and did almost all of the work himself with the exception of the chrome work and the upholstery. His 1928 Packard 526 Roadster is also for sale on this site which won its Junior and Senior awards after his restoration.

  11. This 1928 Packard Series 526 Six 2/4-Passenger Runabout was purchased by my grandfather in 1961 and owned my father before I inherited the car in 2015. The car is powered by a 288ci inline-six paired with a 3-speed manual transmission and was refurbished by the family between 1980 and 1983 with a repaint in cream, new caramel leather upholstery, mechanical overhauls, and more. Additional equipment includes a tan soft top, rumble seat, dual side-mount spares, and factory-optional cowl lights. Maintenance during my ownership has consisted of a recored radiator, new battery, and mechanical inspection in September 2018. This AACA Junior and Senior award winner is offered in Pennsylvania with a clean Florida title in the seller’s name. The early 1980s refurbishment was a body off, down to metal restoration that included bodywork, a repaint in cream and black, and the addition of a green pinstripe as well as the initials of my grandfather on the doors. The car was shown in 1983 AACA meets in York and Hershey, Pennsylvania, where it earned Junior and Senior Awards in successive shows. The car also earned numerous Preservation Awards after receiving the Senior Award in October of 1983. Tons of records including original purchase documents of my grandfather, original owners manual. Identical vehicle not in nearly the same condition recently sold at RM Sotheby's Hershey for $71.5K. Here is the link for the car: https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf18/hershey/lots/r0092-1928-packard-six-roadster/713421 Asking $75000 Please contact Pete English with questions/information or for additional pictures.
