This particular Packard was imported to Australia as RHD (most probably from Canada) and fitted with a Richards (South Australia) body. The body is identical to those fitted to the Studebaker President Eight in Australia. The Packard was exhibited at the 1938 Adelaide Motor Show by Sporting Cars Limited. It was then sold as a demonstrator to a New South Wales doctor. I purchased the Packard in 1972 with 80,000 genuine miles and it still had the Packard san-tex seat covers on. The car has 120,000 miles on it now. The main differences to a 38 Packard body is that the Australian body is 200lbs heavier, has hidden boot hinges, smaller rear windows, door handles on the body belt line and a 1946 slope to the windshield. The die cast door and window gearboxes are also very prone to seizing.
