Sitting right before us glistening in the sun we have a 1948 Packard Custom 8 Convertible Victoria. This Custom star attraction is a top-of-the-line model that is big, powerful, spacious and truly modern in every way. The Custom delivers full-sized luxury that has to be experienced to be understood. It includes every innovation of the day, including hydraulic power assist for the windows, seat and convertible top. The big 356 cubic inch straight-eight was stand equipment, and moves the big convertible effortlessly with that characteristic smoothness that only Packard seems to deliver.
Here is a little brief of the history of the 1948 Packard: Following WWII, the remaining independent American auto a manufacturers worked feverishly to beat the “Big Three” to market with their completely new automotive designs. Packard was no exception. The all-new 22nd series was introduced in August 1947, and since Packard did not limit itself to model year changeovers unlike its larger competitors the new models were marketed until May 1949.
In 1948, the big Packards were still the envy of the industry, and showing up in this convertible is still an event in its own. Nothing else drives like a senior Packard, making this a no-compromises hobby vehicle that is welcome at a multitude of events and will always delight the driver as much as the onlookers. Handsome and unique, the car runs like a dream and is available to you for just $44,900.
