To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 11 - 12 October 2018. One of just 5,120 Eight Phaetons for 1934An older restoration that still presents beautifullyIdeal choice for driving or showing The rare and desirable 1934 Eight Phaeton offered here is a truly unmistakable landmark of Packard design. With wholly new body styling for 1934, the conservative yet attractive lines of this automobile are unmistakable to Packard enthusiasts. In addition, having long been established as one of the premier luxury car manufacturers in the U.S., Packards popularity and sophistication neared its peak in 1934, which makes the cars of the 11th Series, as 1934s were called in factory literature, among the most desirable and highly collectible offerings in todays market. Open cars, like the Eight Phaeton offered, are especially sought after.This 141-inch-wheelbase example is presented in exceptional medium blue with contrasting red pinstripe and a black Naugahyde interior with a new matching blackconvertible top. Though an older restoration, the paint, interior, and chrome are beautifully presented, and the car has been recently fitted with a new set of wide whitewall tires mounted on contrasting red wire wheels. The car is also fitted with the new-for-1934 faux split bumpers, iconic side-mount spares, and fully chromed accessory parking lights, front horns, and headlight buckets. The chrome contrasting and reflecting in the paint produces a dazzling effect which is sure to garner attention from enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts alike.Under the hood, the car has the legendary nine main bearing 320-cu. in. straight eight backed by the standard three-speed manual transmission. To many Packard enthusiasts, this is easily one of the best pre-war engine packages offered by the company due to its power, smoothness, and relatively low cost of maintenance. The storied Twelve offered only slightly more horsepower but at a hefty price both when new and today, making the Eight a viable and desirablealternative. The 120 hp from the Eight was more than capable of pushing the 4,400-lb. Phaeton to speeds more than 80 mph while maintaining comfort and luxury in the process. Few cars, then or now, could offer such grace and performance with the elegance and élan of the Packard.Just 5,120 Eight Phaetons were made for 1934, making this car a highly desirable offering. It is said to be a highly capable performer which runs and drives exceptionally well. Beautifully presented in exciting period colors and with highly desirable optional equipment, this will make an ideal entrant in any driving tour, Antique Automobile Club of America, or Packard Club event nationwide. In addition to being a wonderful driver, it would be a superb start toward a high-point comprehensive restoration that could surely earn awards at concours events around the country.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf18.
