Packard Model 833 Standard

Year: 1931|Ext: Burgundy/Black|Int: Tan|

Always built to the highest standards, Packard was unquestionably one of the finest American automobiles. When new, its price ($2,675) was almost six times the price of a Ford Model A Roadster ($455.00).

This example is a fully restored 1931 Packard Standard 833 equipped with a straight Eight engine (#329943) that runs perfectly and smoothly like new. Opening the hood reveals a cleanly present, highly detailed and correctly finished engine.

This treasure is an AACA First Place Senior and the level of the restoration shows a true winner. All the details are superb including interior, underneath, body, paint and chrome.

As a CCCA Full Classic?, it qualifies for numerous shows and tours, not to mention the AACA events that can be done with it as well. A Packard like this is a rare opportunity to acquire a spectacularly restored and investment grade car.

Introduced in 1924 models, the Packard straight-eight engine marked the beginning of a new era for both its esteemed manufacturer and the American prestige automobile. Led by the legendary Col. Jesse Vincent, Packard engineers had created a powerful, durable and nearly vibration-free inline eight. Combining this superb engine with the styling verve and elegance that set the marque apart in the later 1920s, the Packard Eight fairly defined the attributes of the cars we know today as Classics.

In 1931, further improvements were made, the Eights adopted the valve and manifold set up of the 734 Speedster and in doing so broke the magic 100 horsepower mark.
