Asking $23500.  

 

The spare tires are of the sidemount variety.  Pictures of the fenders attached.  They are primed and should require minimal work before final painting.  I have also added pictures of the interior.

 

I also have a 1928 Packard Runabout (roadster) for sale.  Here is the link:

Looks like a really beautiful start. Agreed regarding Greg's point.

Sounds like a very fair price.  You wouldn't even come close to paying for the work done for that amount, let alone buying the car to begin with.  For someone wanting a great classic closed car that sounds like a good entry.

I'm not a sedan man,  but that one is quite nice and the level of works looks very nice.  I wish I was looking for a project like that where you can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel.

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.

I just looked around the For sale section and down in the Packard section but didn't see the Roadster.  It might be worth posting a link here to it, especially after seeing the quality of the work on the Sedan.  Extra marketing never hurt. 

Good luck.  Hopefully a few good cars like this will be available when I finally finish my big garage to put it in.

I agree it would be a pleasure to put this car together . If you saw what I am working on mine is a puzzle with a few pieces missing . If you look at the care he has taken by putting cardboard so the paint on the frame does not get scratched in front of the radiator . Just looking at the pictures your father must have been very well organized .

Pete,

Does this car have sidemounts, or rear-mounted spare? Also, in what condition are the fenders and running boards?

@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.

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
