I have no interest in the ultimate sale, lease, or transfer of ownership of this Classic Packard.  It is currently located in the Newport, NH area and is owned by a gentleman named "Al".  This 4 door sedan has the 6-cylinder engine and has the jump seats, making this the seven passenger 533.  I believe this is the last year for the 6 banger engine until '37.  I did take a short test drive & can say it starts, runs, and drives.  I must say that my drive was short & I didn't get it past second gear.  I have seen it on face book & I will attempt to drag that info here.....

Marketplace - 1928 Packard 533 Limo | Facebook          He has it listed for $25,000.

Interesting car.  The headlights are later than '28.  The 526/33 had drum headlights.  The fenders also have a beading around the edge that the 5 series does not have.  See photo of my car.  Mine is an early production car (Fall 1927).   I do love the cowl lights on that vintage Packard.  Need to find  some for mine.

Looks like a nice car .I had a 1932 Packard and sold it some years ago what i still regret .i am afraid that my long legs will not fit in this car .When i drove my 1932 it was a tight fit to use all the pedals .I am afraid this 1928 will even be smaller .Its sad that there are no pictures from the inside or the engine .Not a bad price for a running and driving machine

It looks like an interesting car at that price. Some interior and engine bay pics would be helpful. I like the drum headlights on the later six cyl Packards but that is minor. Packard made a lot of these shorter wheelbase, more modest priced sedans, but it seems to me that the vast majority being sold don’t run and need a lot to be presentable and road worthy.  This might be a great car for someone wanting an early Packard who doesn’t have to have their straight 8. If a buyer comes from the forum, I would be interested in hearing more about the car.

Oops. The 533 Packard model DID have a bead line on the mudguards (fenders). In fact, the 526 and 626 did NOT have a bead line whereas the 533 and 633 did have a bead line.

I checked the parts book and Googled some 533's and you are right.  Separate part numbers for 526 and 533.  I have only had the car 3 years and am still learning.  You provided my fact for the day.  Thanks.

Quite unusual setup of 3 spare wheels. Would this be factory option?
