To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 11 - 12 October 2018. Offered from the Richard L. Burdick CollectionThe sportiest body style from one of the great Packard yearsOriginal numbers-matching chassis and engineWell-maintained older Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) National First Prize-winning restorationNumerous desirable accessoriesClassic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full Classic Packards Senior Eight Series models of 1931 featured a 20 percent gain in horsepower over the previous year, thanks to more efficient breathing and carburetion. Other important updates included fully automatic Bijur chassis lubrication, and a Stewart-Warner mechanical fuel pump that replaced the vacuum tank setup of earlier cars. Reportedly fewer than a dozen authentic examples of the Custom Eight roadster, the sportiest and most flamboyant model, remain in existence today.The Custom Eight roadster offered here was an AACA National First Prize winner in 1979. Reportedly it wasfreshly cosmetically restored in 1990, and afterward moved for a time to Europe, winning a First Prize at the Concours dElegance Chopard in 2000. Former owners included Adrian Winchell of Beloit, Wisconsin. The car was later acquired by Mr. Burdick in 2009, and has remained on museum display ever since.The car bears a reproduction vehicle number plate identifying it as having been delivered by the Star Garage Company of Streator, Illinois, on 26 July 1931. The stampings of the chassis frame, engine block, and steering gear all appear authentic and are close together in their numbering, indicating that they left the factory in this combination. While the restoration is older, it has held up remarkably well, with excellent paint in the beautiful era-correct Packard combination of Coral and Russett, and a rich brown leather interior with only minor creasing and stretching. The engine compartment and chassis are both clean and have a pleasantly authentic appearance. Desirable accessories include dualPilot Ray driving lights, a spotlight, radiator stone guard, Goddess of Speed mascot, and chrome wire wheels. The odometer at the time of cataloguing recorded 8,718 miles, likely since the original restoration.This car would be a superb choice for light freshening and continued showing, or, with mechanical sorting, a bulletproof tour automobile for CCCA CARavans or any other adventure its new owner may wish to undertake.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf18.

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 11 - 12 October 2018. One of the most desirable driving Packards of 1931Restored by well-known Packard aficionado Frank BuckEquipped with dual side-mount spares and Pilot Ray lightingClassic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full ClassicEligible for all club events Packard began production of its Eighth Series cars on 14 August 1930. The cars were largely carryovers from its Seventh Series with myriad detail changes. The Packard lineup encompassed an impressive total of 40 models, and prices ranged from $2,385 to a staggering $6,075. At the upper reaches of those prices, a buyer could have chosen to buy a Packard . . . or a modest house! Unfortunately, however, the Depression was being felt as Packard production dropped a precipitous 57.5 percent to 15,450 cars relegating the company to 18th in industry sales. Despite the lower numbers, Packard remained Americas luxury leader, outselling rival Cadillacs 10,709 units. Packard outsoldCadillac-LaSalle six other times during the decade. The roadster, part of the Deluxe Eight lineup, differed from lesser Packards by being built on the longer 140.5-in. wheelbase and powered by the 384.8-cu. in. inline eight-cylinder engine, which now produced 120 hp. The increased power came as the result of adopting valve and manifold changes employed from the now-discontinued Speedster Series. Available only with a rumble seat, the sporty Packard had a base price of $3,490.This handsome Packard was restored during 19741975 by well-known Packard aficionado and collector, Frank Buck; in his possession the car received its CCCA Senior badge, no. 777, and was the winner of a National First Prize at the 1977 Annual Meet. Somewhat later, it was displayed in a museum before being purchased by the current owner, who exhibited it at the 2005 Concours dElegance of the Eastern United States in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Delivered new by the Packard Motor Car Company of Philadelphia on 5 October 1931, it isequipped with original factory accessory dual side-mounts with chrome covers, spotlights, Pilot Ray lighting, and a trunk rack. While showing some wear, the car presents nicely and has been driven regularly. Well detailed under the hood, it has been routinely serviced and cared for while in the current owners possession, and was among his favorite cars.A CCCA Full Classic, it is eligible for all CCCA events, Grand Classics, and CARavans and will serve its new owner as an ideal tour vehicle.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf18.

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 11 - 12 October 2018. One of just 99 examples produced and 20 known survivorsFormerly owned by Harrahs Automobile Collection and Richard GoldOnly 48,900 actual miles; sympathetic and well-maintained restorationAmong the last and most beautiful semi-custom PackardsClassic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full Classic As the custom coachbuilding industry faded out of existence in the early 1940s, American luxury automakers slowly discontinued the factory-catalogued semi-customs that had topped their lines for over a decade.Most of coachbuilder LeBarons final catalogued Packard offerings were formal limousines, which were to be driven by a chauffeur. However, in 1941 only, an owner-driver variant, the sport brougham, could also be had. It was essentially Packards version of the Cadillac Series 60 Special, and it featured a striking design, with narrow chromed window frames and a formal rear window on the shorter 1907-series chassis, as well as asumptuously appointed five-passenger interior. Only 99 sport broughams were built, and survivors are quite rare.The sport brougham offered here was originally sold by the famed California dealer Earle C. Anthony. It was acquired by the famed Harrahs Automobile Collection in 1968 and remained on display there until 1984. That year, at one of the famous Harrahs dispersal auctions, it was purchased by longtime Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) member and past president, Richard Gold of Deephaven, Minnesota, in solid original condition with 38,199 miles. Mr. Gold was known for appreciating originality and performed a sympathetic frame-on restoration, as the car did not require removing the body from the frame. The work received CCCA Senior Premier honors, badge no. 1595.Today the car shows 48,900 actual miles at the time of cataloguing, and the owner, a longtime Packard connoisseur, notes that it has performed flawlessly on two recent CCCA CARavans, riding on Diamondback radial tires. Further, henotes that all accessories work, including the factory-installed overdrive and hydraulic windows. The car retains its original vehicle plate and Earle C. Anthony tag, and is offered with Harrahs sale, registration, and mileage documentation. It is a fine example of one of the rarest late pre-war Packards, beautifully conserved by passionate caretakers.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf18.
