I think the stainless running board moulding should extend on to the front fender just behind the front wheel, but this 160 is a longer wheelbase than mine, so not sure.
The "Packard Motor Car Company" in AZ makes reproductions of this in solid aluminum.



The running board trim on the long wheelbase cars (148-inch) does not extend into the front fender.

This is a 1930, but it should be the same.

The "spacer" attaches directly to the frame. There is no rectangular steel "plate".

I doubt you will find any wood patterns for your car, attached is the Packard body illustration for your model. If you have it professionally enlarged to the maximum size then draw scale grid lines on it using dimensions on the drawing , you can scale off missing dimensions.
Unless you can find an identical car with exposed wood this is about as good as you will get in my view.
The copy does not look very clear, send me your email by PM and I will try to send a better copy.


That drawing is a four-passenger coupe, not a 2/4-passenger coupe. the 2/4 has a rumble seat.

Check with Max Merritt. They just bought all the engines out of the Packard museum, and I'm pretty sure there were some included.

Hi Steve, Deep pockets yes, but my goodness what a gorgeous vehicle!! Chris


More than twice what a knowledgeable Packard enthusiast would pay. A Sport Phaeton, much more desirable, sold for $156k at Amelia this year, and it was in show condition.

Another Sport Phaeton sold about a year ago in the $40-50k range, in complete un-restored condition.

"After not offering the option and seeing the pent up demand and sellers market where mfgs could sell anything they could produce no matter how it was equipped, they no longer had any incentive. "

It's true, the automakers could sell every car built probably four times over. However, they were not allowed to spike the retail prices of the cars, so their incentive came from loading every car with as many accessories as they could.

I have been looking at 833's and I see some have louvers and some have doors in the hood sides.

Which is correct? If either, what determines which one would be on a car?


If you see an 833 with more than three doors (optional), it is NOT an 833.

I just did, that's an impressive list of Packards that mr. Bahre put together (not to mention all the other marquees)

Apparently there are 2 "4071" Dietrich's? A super 8 and a Twelve?


The Bahre car is a Twelve. I don't even think a Super 8 exists for 1934.
