*SOLD*

It's time to sell my first classic car. No time to finish repairs and get back on the road and not wanting to see it sad in the corner any longer. Asking $3,000. Located in NE Ohio (Warren 44484).

Up for sale is my 1950 Packard Standard Eight with Ultramatic transmission. I've had this car for about 10 years and drove it a ton at that time. It was a solid driving car. The original engine is long gone, I have a used 288 included with the sale that i've spun over and verified all cylinders have compression. Clear ohio title in my name. First couple pics show it together and on the road, it's been stored inside a dry, heated garage since it's been off the road. Not sure of actual miles (car is not at my house currently), but i got it at 30,xxx miles and was accurate at that time. I'm assuming i probably put 10k or so on over the years. Whatever the odometer shows is accurate though.

The body is very nice, no rot, older restoration. Needs a good clean and buff as it's been sitting inside a few years and has shop dust on it.

The interior is great, recently repainted the dash and all the metal, hand pin striping on the door inlays.

The car is still 6 volts. The tube radio works AND i have a 6 volt positive ground box that will let you connect a phone/ipod/etc input to the radio.

I had put new radial wide whites on it about 5 years ago and they have very little mileage (they're around 1k a set).

I had the ultramatic rebuilt with modern friction components, and the converter was rebuilt also.

Generator rebuilt and voltage regulator adjusted.
Have a 4bbl manifold and correct rebuilt packard carb with starter switch that was running in the car before i had issues with past engine.

Also should still have the 2bbl manifold and rebuilt carb with starter switch around.

This car needs the engine gone over, installed and accessories hooked up, new battery, and driven. You could not get one of these with this clean a body and interior for this price, it would cost 10K to get one in this shape with a running engine and even then it'd likely be a 3 spd or a tired ultramatic with who knows how much life left. Great project for someone to finish and enjoy.

Mike,
Sorry that you're selling your '50 Eight Touring Sedan.

When it's sold, could you please advise so the Registry entry can be updated?

Looks like a nice, clean Packard that I hope finds a good home. It's not a Classic, of course (no 1948 and newer Packards are Classics) but still a nice antique.

It's great to see someone asking a reasonable price for a good project start. I see so many that are listed for an absurd amount and they need a lot of work. I'm finding out first hand what that's like.

Looks like a great car that will clean up very nicely. If I was closer and wasn't so invested in my own project I'd definitely be interested. Good luck with the sale!

That was my goal: give someone who wants to mess with the motor plenty of budget to do so. Finished, being a standard and not perfect and a 4 door, i'd assume it'd fetch about 10k or so. Getting it for 3k with the rebuilt ultramatic and a good start on a used engine gives someone room to not become upside down on the car, even if they had the engine rebuilt. Honestly if i get the itch for another bathtub, i'll buy the 2 door i've always loved in the future. For now, need room and the weight of this car off my shoulders as i've never gotten to it.
