THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

By 1940, Packard's model line had come to include the mainstream One-Ten (formerly known as the Packard Six) and One-Twenty models, topped by the senior-level Super 8 One-Sixty and Custom Super 8 One-Eighty lines. With the legendary Packard Twelve discontinued after 1939, the top Packard engine choice was now the 356 cubic-inch straight eight. With a 160-horsepower rating, smooth operation and prodigious torque, the less-exotic eight more than capably filled the Twelve's shoes. This engine was now standard on the Super 8 One-Sixty and Super 8 One-Eighty models, which rode a variety of wheelbase lengths and carried a wide variety of elegant body designs.

Known as the Nineteenth Series, the 1941 Packard model line was introduced in September 1940 and continued the styling innovations that were pioneered during the prior year, along with a variety of welcome detail updates. With their robust 8-cylinder powertrain, independent front suspension and soft, smooth ride, Packard's Super Eight models and particularly the versatile One-Sixty cars remain highly desirable today for their drivability and usability, in addition to their renowned quality and stately character. Just 3,535 examples of the Super 8 One-Sixty were produced in all for the 1941 Nineteenth Series.

Featuring unusual and handsome livery comprising Chickory Green Metallic and Grove Green Metallic two-tone paint, this upscale 1941 Packard Super 8 One-Sixty DeLuxe Convertible Coupe is a captivating example of these renowned Packards of the immediate prewar era. In addition to its robust, 160-horsepower "eight" and synchromesh transmission with desirable overdrive, it also features green leather-and-vinyl upholstery, a power-operated tan convertible top and twin side mounted spares within sleek steel covers, a pushbutton AM radio, dash clock and added turn-signal indicators. As offered, it stands as an attractive and enjoyable example of Packard's upper-echelon series of the immediate prewar era.
