THE 1948 PACKARD

The Packard of the late 1940s are among the most collectible of post-war American automobile. The cars continued virtually unchanged from 1946, either stylistically or mechanically, and it was not until the 1948 range was announced that there was a wholesale makeover. The Packard's new look was longer, sleeker and more streamlined than before. Only three series (all eight-cylinder) were now available: Standard/Deluxe, Super and Custom, the latter in either standard or long-wheelbase versions, which were powered by Packard's 'Thunderbolt' inline side-valve engines of 288cid, 327cid and 356cid respectively.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Offered here is an exceptionally original example of the Packard Series 22 Station Sedan. Just 55,560 miles has been recorded on the odometer since new, and the factory livery of Egyptian Sand over light brown interior remains in situ. The car was sold new in Long Beach, CA, to a Mrs. Edith Marie Crews, and it would remain in her devoted care until 1984. At this point the Packard was purchased by Mr. John Sobers, the collection manager for the renowned automobile collection of General William Lyons. Mr. Sobers would keep the car until 1990, when Mr. Edwin Davidson acquired the car with just 51,095 miles on the odometer. By 1998 the car joined the Michael Porto Collection, where it has remained ever since, accruing an additional 4,000 miles. The excellent Packard has been awarded Packard Internationals 'Circle of Champions' award as a class winner and was displayed at the famed Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. The history file contains many receipts dating back to the 1950s, and mechanical work performed in current ownership includes an engine rebuild as well as diligent service and maintenance.

From its Cormorant hood ornament to the huge hatch for the rear deck, this is one impressive piece of machinery. The styling very much lends itself to the Art Deco movement, with fender skirts at the back and full-size wheel covers. Offered from a prominent Southern California based collection of exceptional American Classics, this spectacular Packard Series 22 Station Sedan offers room for the whole family and will surely make a fine addition to any collection.
