VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:
I had initially started by thinking about maybe getting a Model T or Model A because, honestly, I am not a particularly adept mechanic and was thinking simple is better but eventually went back to Packard because, well, PACKARD.I had originally seen this car at the fall meet of the Florida Packard Club with a For Sale sign in the window. I took pictures of it along with the other cars that were in attendance.It was not on my radar at all. I had my eye on a 1942 Packard sedan that a local classic car dealer had posted on their website a couple of months prior to the meet. However my work schedule did not line u
with their hours of operation at all. I dropped them and email inquiring about the car but never received a reply. After that while I was reviewing pictures taken at local car shows over the past few years here in town and I noticed that both of the Packards (the one at the dealer and the one with the For Sale sign at the meet) were in my old photos. When the Florida Packard Club newsletter arrived, it contained photos of the cars in attendance at the Fall meet. It included my coupe and thegigantic 1941 with the For Sale sign. Also in the newsletter was a classified ad for that same 1941 7 Passenger Sedan. I dropped the owner an email inquiring if the car was still for sale and, quite honestly, hoping that the answer would be No. However, she replied that Yes, it was still for sale and she had been preparing an ad for Hemmings Motor News for it. She had owned it for 13 years, having bought it from someone in New York State. It had been restored prior to her buying it and shipping it to Sarasota. Since she had started getting on in years, she had decided it was time to send the car off to a new caretaker. So, against my better judgement, I made arrangements to go see it as it was only about 3 minutes from my home. One of my issues was not being able to find a factory measurement for the length of the vehicle (later members of the Forum on this site provided me links to those specs). I went to see the car, primarily to measure it's length to see if it would fit in my space. I measured the length of the car and found that among the two spaces I had for planned to use, one was partially blocked by a tree so as not to permit straight in access and the other was not looking promising. Long story short, the owner accommodated me by driving to where I had planned to store it and it fit so I bought it.
