1948 PACKARD22nd Series Standard Eight Touring Sedan
Factory RHD straight eight this car was delivered to a serving US Army officer stationed in Woomera. South Australia in the late 1940s. Maintained by the army. illicitly we suspect. as it still sports the original olive drab on some engine bay components.  
This is not intended to be an ‘Army Car' rather as tribute to what the original owner might have done had he kept the car after his service in the Army was complete.  
Previously last registered in 1972. it's now been back on the road just a couple of years and gets out and about most weeks. Starts and runs every time. Very original and repaired with all genuine Packard parts.  
 We have rebuilt pretty much everything. Brakes have been fully rebuilt. re-cored radiator is like new. Fully rebuilt carburetor. New high performance 6V battery. It's a very long list.  
The car was ordered without indicators (probably considered surplus for getting around the base and between remote operational fields) so we have sourced original Packard indicators as were an option on this model.  
Straight Eight engine 288 CI is original to the car. It runs perfectly and I was told the previous owner rebuilt it (or had it rebuilt). Interior carpets are new as is front seat including foam and upholstery. Door cards and rear seat are still original duck down under later covers.  
Car also has an original Packard visor and several bits of literature and we also have both front and back original enamel South Australia licence plates that were on the car when delivered new.
In the flesh. this car generates a lot of interest from all sorts of people. At last year's MotoClassica we had a steady stream of people walking to the far side of the compound to take a look and have a chat.
Making OffersI'm open to offers but please make them realistic. Offers below $20k will be ignored. Also. I'm not likely to consider an offer of $20. 01 the day after this ad first airs either.  
That said. I am a motivated seller as we have inherited two other cars through the family that I need to house soon.
