1942 Packard 180 Limo rare prewar


Recommended Posts

I'm listing this car for a friend of mine. Please don't email me-call the number posted. He's owned it for 40 years and has been stored in his dry, concrete floor garage all this time. It runs but has been sitting for a few years. All original survivor. Original paint. Straight body with only one very small dent. No rust, clean undercarriage. Original interior shows wear. This would be a great car to go thru the brakes, etc. and put it back on the road as is. Here is a link to lots of pictures....

Packard Lover,

Congratulations on a beautiful car. By taking it off the market you might have saved my marriage! I've lusted after such a car since I was a young teenager many years ago. An elderly recluse near my home had several large cars stashed away including one just like this. When I first saw these photos I thought it might be the same car, but his had factory AC, power windows and an intercom. I used to go by and sit in it and pretend it was mine. Unfortunately at that time my entire fortune was something like $20 and he wanted $1,000 for it.

I'm glad this one went to a good home. I'm sure you'll post photos for us to drool over when you get it cleaned up.

Don

My wifes plan is to sell all my 25 year collection of 40-42 parts and the car, then discuss a repalcement, There unfortunately just more money and work than I can afford with retirement looking me in the face. My 42 limo will easily cost 30K to finish to presentable interior, wood graining, and restoring 7 wood window frames plus paint, not even show. and the wife would not even discuss replacing it with this one. I have 2 other 42 180 parts car. one 42 formal complete need restoring. 1 1940 160 complete need total restore, but is complete. I working in South America but when the project end I should have time to start the disposal.

Hi West, the car arrived and not to my surprise, it needs a bit more work than I anticipated. Yes, I am happy with it. I have too many projects facing me, so this will sit awhile until I decide what to do. I am not mechanically adept, so I have to rely on a friend, whose rates are very fair. He will start by cleaning the gas tank and lines before preparing the engine to start it. I also purchased the Packard sign, which was hanging on the wall, from the Seller.
