1929 Packard Convertible Coupe *SOLD*

An older restoration that still looks good, this 1929 Packard 626 convertible coupe would make an awesome Caravan candidate. It doesn't look like it's had a major frame-off, but it's quite clean underneath so it was never a basket case that needed it, either. The paint is still quite good and the color combination is authentic, giving the tidy convertible a sporty look. Zero rust and no signs of body repair, wood framing is solid, and floors are good, including the cast aluminum Packard toe board. Chrome is good to very good, with the biggest issue being some light pitting on the hood ornament and radiator neck, but nothing that would warrant replacement. Also includes a brand new, never installed grille guard that's in excellent condition, as well as a trunk for touring.

The interior appears to be dark green vinyl, but it does an awfully good impersonation of the original stuff and is probably a lot more durable for touring. Hardly any wear since it was installed and the rumble seat upholstery looks like new. The gauges and instrument panel are likely original, although they're all functional except the gas gauge, which is typical of these capillary-type systems. The canvas on the convertible top is probably older than the rest of the work and shows some discoloration, but is completely usable as-is with no splits, rips, or tears in the material, and the top bows are excellent.

The engine is a smooth-running 320 cubic inch straight-8 which idles with typical Packard smoothness. Still running the original vacuum tank and carburetor, the engine bay is highly authentic, and it's finished in Packard Green with a cast aluminum crankcase. No issues with leakage, no internal noises, good oil pressure and charging. The only reason we couldn't get it off the lift for photographs is because the yellow Thunderbird near it had some kind of ABS problem and all four wheels locked up, stranding the Packard on the lift. I'll try to get more photos eventually.

A nice tour-grade Full Classic with a top that goes down and no major needs. Asking $59,900 and we're open to reasonable offers. Thanks!
