 We have a 1948 Packard straight 8 deluxe. but the straight 8 engine & gearbox has long gone (we didn`t get it with the car when my dad bought it)

This was my dads car. he bought it sooo long ago i can`t even remember. maybe 1980-ish. it didn`t have an engine or a gearbox but dad had a Leyland P76 4. 4litre alloy v8 with a cast-iron 4-speed celica/corona gearbox attached. so we slipped that lot into the engine bay.

But that`s about as far as it got & so it has sat here ever since

dad lost the plot with dementure over the last few years & has recently died & it`s my job to clear everything out to sell the property.

We were told by one of our mechanics that the rear axle has a problem. pretty sure he said it had a broken axle but i don`t really know for sure to be honest.

the tyres are flat. it does have rust as the pictures tell the story. i`m sure it`s worth doing-up as we were also told at the time that my dad bought it that this was one of only 3 in Australia. so it`s a pretty rare beast. even in the states there are not that many around
(yes i`ve searched :-) )

The engine was a good runner when we fitted it. but it`s now sat for about 30-odd years so i`d expect you`d want to give it a freshen-up if you were to use it.

obviously i`m not posting or freighting this thing anywhere. if you buy it then it`s up to you to get it out of there. we`ve cleared the bush around the front of the shed so it can be easy picked up by a tilt tray truck or a decent (Lage) trailer . but you`d want to have a motha of an electric winch to get it onto your trailer. it`s over 20f long & weighs a ton & a half :-)

This would make an Awesome hot-rod or rat-rod or spend some time & money & bring it back to original if you can find an engine/gearbox.

I was seriously thinking of keeping it myself but i have way way way too much on my plate & no-where to store it
money isn`t a problem. just time & room & energy are all lacking.

it will be sad to see it go as dad told many storys about his dad owning one of these back when he was getting his licence & he loved it so much he bought one :-)

anyways. reserve is very respectable & we will want cash on Pick-up within a couple of weeks of winning bid time.

what you see in the pics is what you get. there may be some parts inside it but that`l be it.

we are in Murarrie Brisbane & the car is at Chandler/Burbank Brisbane

We would like the new owner to stay in touch if possible as it would be pretty cool to show dad`s sister what`s happened to the old girl.
Cheers & happy bidding
Matt

revised--> i have lowered the reserve price once again. but this is where it will stay
if it`s going to make it easier for you people for me to take the motor & gearbox out & sell it seperately
then i`ll do so if it doesn`t sell this time around
there is obviously a fair amount of interest as the number of watchers is huge
So i`ll let this run one more time. & if it doesn`t sell at the lower reserve price i`ll rip the donk & box out & re-list them seperately
ok? & if this happens then both the car & the power unit will then be located at Murarrie. Brisbane. 4172
cheers
