Mot Xotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this 1938 Packard Eight 5-Passenger Sedan, which was assembled at Packards Detroit, Michigan facility. For 1938, the Packard One Twenty became the Model Eight. This Packard was prominently displayed proudly in the Missoula Auto Museum, where it was also professionally restored.Finished in Caribbean Blue, this cars paint and trim are in overall very good order, with a small blemish on the passenger front door. The glass panels are clear and intact, including the two-piece windshield and split backlight. The cars lights are haze-free and look great, including the single round red reflector on the drivers side rear and the center-mounted brake light on the trunk, a precursor of todays center high-mounted stop lights.This Packard rolls on Commander bias-ply, wide whitewall tires, sized 7.00-16, surrounding factory wheel covers. Tires and wheels are in overall good order, the cars body panels are solid and straight, including the so-called suicide rear doors, and the bumpers are in very good shape.

Backing up that engine is a selective synchromesh three-speed manual transmission and a 4.36 rear end.Inside, the cars tan bench seats are in very good order, with the back seat offering generous passenger space. The brown carpet looks very good and the tan headliner is borderline immaculate. The gray instrument panel presents a contrast to the interiors earth tones and looks fine overall, however, the speedometers face is very milky. A gray, three-spoke steering wheel faces the driver while the inner door panels match the seats. The mirror glass is in very good order, as is the tall gearshift lever, which was in its final year.

Its so-called "Safe-T-Flex" suspension was anunequal upper and lower A-arm typewith the largest possible lower A-arm composed of two different arms bolted together at a ninety-degree angle.
