Thanks for all the helpful observations and guidance! I've posed a few Qs to the seller based on the input.

Here are a couple more pics.

Considering a 1941 120 Touring Sedan - Fair Price??

Greetings -

I'm a newbie to classic cars, considering my first, a 1941 Packard.

As I'm not an ace mechanic at this point, I need something that's in very condition.

I found the following ad, and would appreciate feedback, especially around the price. $24,700. Fair? High? Bargain? Based on some initial research, I think it's on the high side.

Thanks in advance!

1941 Packard One-Twenty 4door Touring Sedan Series 1901

This car was supposed to be at the Mecum auction just missed the deadline. It was going to be at no reserve. Models like this one have sold for over $40,000 they are very rare and this is a special series. I have all the paperwork from the original owner. This is a must-see probably sell to the first person that looks at it.

Miles shown 48,838

Two tone silver metallic combination

Optional dual side mounting spare tires

Have complete paperwork from when the car was new to all the repairs done. Engine was rebuilt approximately 2,000 mi ago. New interior that is a year old. Has the 12 volt conversion. The car rides like a dream. Has the original straight 8 engine with 120 horsepower. Does not leak any fluid.

Thanks to all for the excellent feedback, recommendations, and advice.

And yes, the car a couple of you found is indeed the one in question. It sounds like the price is quite high, at least 2x if not more.

I recognize there is much I don't know. I wish there were more Packards in my area (Portland, OR) that I could see/drive.

IN some ways I'd prefer a convertible sedan of the mid-late 1930s vintage, but have concerns about how well the top would work in such a rainy climate we have here. And my sense is such models tend to be more rare/more $$s.

Again, appreciate the insights (and patience).

Good price, considerations for 1936 Packard 120 Luxury Touring Sedan

I'm considering my first classic car purchase, and this is my first post, so please bear with me...

The car is a 1936 Packard 120 Luxury Touring Sedan, maroon, very well restored and in good running condition. I have only seen (many) pictures - have not seen it in person. The owner has provided lots of details about the condition and restoration. THe car is in another state, so I can't easily get to it at the moment to see/drive it. I'm in the process of locating a mechanic that specializes in classic cars to inspect it for me.

My questions for the group:

- I haven't been able to find any good valuation guides. Can anyone point me to one OR weigh in on a) what you think would be a "fair" price, and b) what you think would be (from my perspective) a good deal on a car like this.

- What are the key questions I should be asking before I buy?

- WHat else should a first-time Packard buyer of this vintage know?

FYI, one of the uses of the car will be for a small business driving wedding couples.

Thanks much!!
