Currently listed on Hemming's are the following three Packards: 1937 Packard 120C, Packard Super-charged 8, and Packard Super 8, all three are for under $28,000.

I would have thought they would have been higher in price.

I don't think it's just Packard - late prewar prices seem down.

Odd that the supercharged Packard still has the air cleaner support bracket attached to thin air at the top! Was the supercharger aftermarket or experimental?

At Hemmings.com the seller says: "...Look at this 1936 Packard One Twenty Sedan with Graham Supercharger, that we believe is a 1937 model! This was installed in the early 50's...."

Jump into -> this video to hear the charger sound.

We do a lot of engineering work on Mustangs. They are not a car I would buy for myself because I don't want one. The Roush option is a very impressive performer, After about two blocks I couldn't understand why anyone would want to buy that antique stuff. Ditto the Chrysler Hell Cat. $65,000 gets you a car that will outperform the best factory built competition car. However, a little 4 cylinder BMW will beat both of those on the test track.

So the only reason to buy an antique car is if you like the car. For example, I remember bombing around in Billy Hirsch's 745. I hope whoever has it now will take care of it, but I'm thinking about retiring overseas and don't see much use for that stuff in places like Vienna, Prague, Berlin, or Warsaw let alone Acapulco.

These cars make me laugh. $28,000 for a Packard with an interior from the Men's Warehouse is absurd. I also notice how the prices keep going up on cars that have been for sale for years I assume because these people think are some kind of capital investment.

I knew somebody who lost money on four Duesenbergs. Enough said.

Thank you for the warm welcome back. I appreciate it. I had to leave the forum for a while because there were some forum members who were taunting me and being unnecessarily sarcastic to me. Why? I don't know, unless because I don't own a Packard and/or wasn't asking what they considered "serious" Packard questions. Who knows. I certainly don't.

Regardless, I do appreciate your kind welcome.

Hi skateboardgumby

Welcome back! Glad to have you back! Two words explain what is happening to pre-war collector cars in general: demographic change.

Steve
