THE PACKARD STATION WAGON

In 1948 and 1949, Packard produced these fine Station Wagons – or Station Sedans as they were referred to - in limited numbers. The company would not make a Station Wagon for another ten years, and these Art Deco styled motorcars really represent the transition from wood bodied manufactured wagons to the modern-day station car. The construction of these cars are very interesting, and unlike other woodies, the only place where wood is used as a stress-bearing part of the body is where the standard sedan's rear quarter is cut away and replaced with wood. The remainder of the birch is simply inlaid where the outer metal skin has been cut away, except for the tailgate, which is all wood.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Offered here is a fine example of the Packard Series 22 Station Sedan. A restoration has been performed in the past, attending to both cosmetic and mechanical aspects of the Packard, and ensures its stunning presentation today. With the metal part of the bodywork finished in a lovely sea foam green metallic color, neatly accented by the door and window wood trim, the Packard looks just right. Chrome and bright work is in beautiful condition, and period-correct whitewall tires are fitted. From its Cormorant hood ornament to the huge hatch for the rear deck, this is one impressive piece of machinery. A solid straight eight engine moves the Packard, with an overdrive transmission ensuring relaxed cruising. The styling very much lends itself to the Art Deco movement, with fender skirts at the back and full-size wheel covers. Most recently part 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. This is an excellent opportunity to obtain a seldom-seen Woody made by the prestigious Packard firm.
