1948 Packard Delux 8 Touring Sedan Antique Vehicle Inspection
This was a treat to inspect this vehicle. The “Bath Tub” design of these vehicles will never be forgotten… Although she had some bumps and bruises here and there that had been repaired nicely, she still shows her age like any older antique should… She drives nice, all of her doors, windows, locks, switches & knobs work good including the wipers. There was some repair done to the RF door which had some light waves in the panel and some filler was found in the lower rocker panels on the exterior but overall the body is in great condition. The engine, transmission and driveline are in good condition with only a couple minor leaks and a loose u-joint which you would expect to find on a vehicle this age. The suspension has been recently freshened up with new kingpins and tie-rods up front and new shocks in the back. The front wheel bearings have just a little bit of play in them but likely just need some grease and adjustment.
