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.

This particular car is a rare convertible sedan. It was purchased by James Sullivan from a gentleman in California. Not much is known about its early history. However, it can be reported that the car was delivered new to Earle C. Anthony Inc. in San Francisco, California. Mr. Sullivan had intended to restore the car but fell ill. It has been in storage for the past twenty years.

Today, the car is very much a classic barn find. The metal on the body is in very solid condition, which is hard to find on project cars. An ideal candidate for a restoration and a rewarding project for its next owner.
