1948 Packard Super Eight 7-passenger Deluxe Sedan

Very rare Super Eight Deluxe 7-passenger Sedan. Reported to be one of only 865 ever produced! A host of wonderful, factory appointed options and showing only 72,000 miles! A very solid example and truly a time capsule with its original condition! Just gorgeous!

After World War II, most manufacturers fulfilled the auto hungry public’s desire for new automobiles with continuations of the pre-war body designs. It was far too expensive to retool the equipment, so it would be a couple of years for most companies to introduce new models. Packard introduced a new smoother design, and more rounded body in 1946, and streamlined it even further with a completely fender-less look by 1948, referred to as the 22nd Series. Sales were swift for Packard throughout the model lines for post-war buyers, but some examples were far rarer than others. One of those models was the Series 2271- a Super Deluxe Eight Sedan at an original cost of $3,850. With a 141” wheelbase, elegantly trimmed inside, larger 327ci engine with oil-bath air cleaner, and seating for seven passengers! It is reported that only 865 units were ever produced!

We are very excited to offer this incredibly solid, and largely original, 1948 Packard Super Eight Deluxe 7-passenger Sedan! Finished in gorgeous Agate Blue Metallic over all original Blue Cloth interior, it remains one of the most original examples we have ever seen! its original, numbers correct 327ci Straight 8 producing 145 horsepower mated to a 3-speed column-shifted manual transmission, it continues to start without hesitation, and operate as Packard intended! Features include rear under seat heaters, foldable jump seats, rear foot rest, rear assist handles and ropes, illuminated entry, map lights, front & rear vent windows, faux wood dash & window garnish moldings, turn signals, Glare-proof rearview mirror, and more!

Showing only 72,470 miles, and considering the visible wear, we feel this is completely accurate! The body and chassis remain remarkable solid and rust free. It has been repainted its original color in modern base/clear fashion with professional results. It continues to remain gorgeous and show worthy! The exterior chrome is also original continuing to provide much shine and luster having never been re-chromed.
