1928 Packard Single Six Model 526 Sedan
Chassis no. U138301
Always built to the highest standards, the Packard was unquestionably one of the finest American automobiles of the pre-war era. Right from the moment the first car emerged in November 1899, Packard's innovative engineering and superior build quality attracted the attention of wealthy clients. Indeed, throughout the 1910s and 1920s, Packard ranked alongside Peerless and Pierce-Arrow, this elite trio of the US automobile industry being known as the ‘Three P’s’.

A 5th-Series model, the car offered here dates from the last year of Packard Single Six production, by which time the L-head motor displaced 288.6ci (4.7-liters) and produced a sporty 81bhp, and carries the four door sedan coachwork that was one of five different body styles available on the shorter (126”) wheelbase. It is said to be in fair mechanical and cosmetic condition, and an excellent candidate for a sympathetic restoration.
