1937 Packard Straight 8 Tour­ing Limou­sine

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

For­merly owned by the late Sir James Cayzer (whose great grand­fa­ther founded the Clan Line ship­ping com­pany), Packard’s Straight 8 equalled the power and com­fort of a Rolls-Royce Phan­tom III but without the Crewe car’s in­her­ent V12 com­plex­i­ties. Sir James paid just £15,000 for it in 1987 and straight­away spent more than £2000 on new car­pets, leather Con­nol­lis­ing and win­dow cap­ping re­fresh­ment. Said to be in ‘out­stand­ing’ con­di­tion, this could be a great value buy if it sells within es­ti­mate.
