Price on request

Rare one year only body style

Packard had been long established as America’s premier luxury car maker by the time the Tenth series was introduced for 1933. The Tenth series was a massive undertaking for Packard as they attempted to streamline the range and hoped to allow the prestige of their top models to trickle down to the bottom of the lineup. Packard’s entry-level model Eight (1001, 1002 series) replaced the previous Standard Eight and Light Eights. In spite of Packard’s efforts to move the Eight down toward the middle of the market, it was still well and truly a full luxury car. With a 120 horsepower straight-8 cylinder engine the 1933 Eight gave exceptionally good performance and was considered to be quite a performance bargain of the era.

Due to the economic struggles of the early 1930’s, Packard production was suffering. Fewer than 5,000 examples of the Tenth-series were produced in total. Of that total production, only 1800 units of the 1001 Eights were built. A tiny proportion of those got the sporty coupe roadster coachwork, making this among the rarest of all Tenth series Packards. Sitting on a short 127.5” wheelbase, the Coupe Roadster is characterized by its low windscreen, hidden rumble seat and thanks to this example’s optional rear mounted spare, distinctively clean lines. The addition of wide-white wall tires and Trippe driving lights make this is a very attractive example of a true American classic.

This magnificent driving car received the Classic Car Club of America National First Award and 100 point Senior Award. First year with down-draft carburetor and full syncro transmission. Only 3912 miles on a full restoration.
