After World War II, most manufacturers fulfilled the public's desire for new automobiles with continuations of the pre-war body designs. It was far too expensive to retool the equipment, so it would be a couple of years for most companies to introduce new models. Packard introduced a new smoother design, and more rounded body in 1946, and streamlined it even further with a completely fender-less look by 1948, referred to as the 22nd Series. Sales were swift for Packard throughout all model lines for post-war buyers, with some examples far rarer than others. Packard was celebrating its 50th Anniversary of automobile manufacturing in 1949. Although, few changes were made to the popular 1948 series which allowed for the continued sales success of the design. It was reported that some remaining 1948 inventory was simply re-plated with new serial numbers and sold as new "early 1949" stock. You can tell these unique examples with their 9 between the model series and unit number on their vehicle identification plates.

We are very excited to offer this fully restored, early 1949 Packard Super Eight Series 2202 Touring Sedan! Finished in gorgeous black over all Beige broadcloth interior, it remains a superb example of just 5,879 produced for 1949! Bearing Model #2272, this cosmetically restored sedan remains powered by its factory correct 327ci Straight 8 cylinder engine(G427659) producing 145 horsepower mated to a 3-speed column-shifted manual transmission with overdrive. It continues to start with ease and run as quiet as Packard intended! Features include chrome wire spoke wheels with American Classic 7.60-15 wide whitewall tires, Packard amber-colored fog lamps, front & rear Master Bumper Guards with protection rails, Cormorant hood ornament, windshield sun visor, dual outside mirrors, AM radio with fender-mounted antenna, rear fender shrouds, exhaust turn down tip, reverse light, heat/defrost; rear seat footrest, armrest & assist rope; front & rear vent windows, faux wood dash & window garnish moldings, turn signals, gas door paint protector, and passenger "Packard" vanity mirror!

Showing only 55,472 miles, the body and chassis remain remarkably solid showcasing a 2016 cosmetic restoration that has held up very well. Even the underside of the factory 120" wheelbase chassis & floor pans appear rather remarkable. It has been repainted with results that are beginning to show slight aging but maintain a smooth finish with plenty of luster! The gorgeous exterior chrome shines brightly having been re-plated in the process. Inside, one would also marvel at the level of care to restore the original appeal of the factory upholstery materials, wood-painted trim pieces, headliner, and chrome trimmed appointments! The steering wheel appears to remain original.

This unit hails most recently out of Mobile, Alabama and will include a reprinted operating manual & service manual, complete spare tire & changing tools, and a clear Missouri title in our company's name. Seatbelts have been added for both front and rear occupants for added safety, and the engine fitted with an electric fuel pump and a custom radiator shroud. This beautiful Packard Super Eight represents a unique opportunity for a tenured Packard collector or enthusiast. Please feel free to call with questions or to schedule a chance to review in person! Thanks for looking!
