Re: Advice from those in the know on 1949 Super 8 Coupe

Without seeing the serial numbers my thoughts are 22nd series 1949 Super 8 Deluxe with added mid side trim. The egg crate grill front and rear, tail lights, bumper guards, 327 engine, and what appears to be the 127 inch wheelbase indicate Super 8 Deluxe. It lacks some trim of a Custom 8. Just my observation.
Beautiful looking car.

The tank will fit but the sending units are different. I replaced tanks on my 47 Clipper taxi with a 49 tank. You will have to use a sending unit for a 47. I made a adapter plate for the sending unit. The hole is larger on the 48-50 tank and the bolt pattern is different. The 47 and 48 have different OHMs. I hope this helps and good luck. Beautiful Packard.

Mike, I think that either choice 6cyl or 8cyl would be suitable for a reliable driver. I own and drive both the 6cyl and the 8cyl cars often. My experience has been with 1937 115 touring sedan, 1947 Clipper sedan taxi both are 6cyl cars. The 8cyl cars are 1948 Super8 with 327ci and 1949 Super8 convertible with the 327ci engine. I also have driven our 1949 Deluxe8 sedan 288ci engine to all 4 borders of the United States to National meets. The only drawback of the 6cyl cars is prolonged Interstate higher speeds. I found the 8cyl cars to be able to keep up with all traffic situations. My personal favorite is the 327ci engine. Happy Packarding, Roger

46 - 47 taxi color Rajah maroon/Arizona beige; the lighting can play tricks with the colors.

1950 Packard club sedan For Sale again

!950 Club Sedan for sale again. Buyer never picked the car so the price has been reduced to $750. The car is unmolested and complete except what the rust bug and rodents did not eat. The 288 engine is stuck. R-11 overdrive, radio delete car. This would be a very ambitious restoration or a excellent parts car. I need to move this car due to city ordinance. Thank you.
