1948 Packard Wagon

This 1948 Packard Woody Wagon is an extremely rare and sought-after car that's ready for straightforward recommissioning. Tan with brown interior. Just out of long-term ownership and storage, it's ready for cosmetic and mechanical refurbishment. It wears an old restoration that shows somewhat tired paint and chrome. The wood is in overall good condition and the interior would benefit from a high level detailing. Nice and straight body and structurally sound. Not currently running. 1948 saw the finalization of Packards post-war styling. This new look was highlighted by a smooth headlight to tail light treatment on the side panels with only the beltline ridge appearing to separate what could be considered the fender line. This free-flow styling as Packard called it, gave the new cars a striking, modern appearance. The front bumper was integrated into the grille and the well-appointed interiors featured large, comfortable seats while offering generous amounts of hood and leg room. In the 1948 brochure, Packard declared it the all-occasion beauty and comfort of a sedan, all the traditional utility of a station wagon along with new strength, streamlining, and proud distinction. This four door wagon was only offered for three years. Its ash panels, framed with birch, were largely decorative; indeed, the only structural woodwork on the otherwise steel-bodied vehicle was the tailgate, which pioneered the two-piece gate design that would become a feature of most American wagons by the mid-1950s. Power came from Packards smooth-running inline-eight engine. In total, just 3,885 examples of the Eight Station Sedan were built from 1948 through 1950, with the majority produced in 1948; few have survived to the present. Packard Woody Wagons are extremely rare and seldom come on the market. This is a great opportunity to acquire this rare and sought after model at a bargain price. This 1948 Packard Eight Station Sedan represents a rare offering from the twilight years of wood-trimmed wagon production.
  • An elegant and unusual woody wagon design 
  • One of only 3,885 produced, of which few survive 
  • A dream come true for the Packard collector 
Price: $36,500
