The stylish Packard 740 Custom Eight roadster is a fine example of the marque in pristine condition. This vehicle is a highly desirable classic with its unique styling paving the way for a reliable investment. This Packard was subject to a masterful restoration to the highest of standards and presents in a very period fashion. Presenting largely original, its exterior and undercarriage are spotless, having been professionally restored in a deep burgundy, while its tan interior trim is in superb condition, perfectly accented by its wooden dash panelling. Since previous listing, this example has been verified as original and a genuine cabriolet.

The 6.3L straight-eight engine provides power through a four-speed manual transmission - both of which are in outstanding mechanical order. One drive of this car shows the meticulous care taken by its previous owners. Accompanying this breathtaking classic are original Service Parts List books, information book, trophies and an extensive photographic log of the restoration process. Do not miss this unique opportunity to own a beautiful piece of American motoring history.

Leading up to the great depression Packard was heavily favoured by wealthy Americans. By the time this Custom Eight hit the market in 1930, Packard had been the top selling luxury brand for six years. Packard was a firm favourite with film stars for its glamorous style and high quality when new.
