1942 Packard 110 Convertible
For sale is a beautiful example of a 1942 Packard 110 convertible. Responsible for the survival of Packard as an automotive marque immediately following the great depression, the Packard 110 was a revival of the earlier Packard 6. After a decade of remaining at the top of the American luxury market and relying on larger V8 and V12 engines, Packard reintroduced the more affordable inline 6 in order to create a more affordable "entry model" for the American market. The result was a Packard that retained the brand's luxury and status at a price the upper-middle class could afford. Over 75 years later, the Packard 110 remains as stylish and eye catching as the day it rolled out of the factory. Finished in a striking red paint over a very unique tan and maroon interior, this car shows exceptionally well. The Packard inline 6 is mated to a 3-speed manual transmission and performs exceptionally. Having recently undergone a tune-up and brake work to ensure the comfort and drivability promised by Packard all those years ago, this 110 is ready for the roads ahead.
