Auctions America Auburn Fall Spotlight: 1934 Packard Standard Eight Convertible Coupe
This 11th Series Packard is powered by the straight eight, 319.2 cubic inch engine and built on the 136 1/4” wheelbase chassis. This vehicle spent most of its early years in Louisiana and Missouri and was acquired by the current owner in 2009. It carries a factory-built Packard body number 719 which was referred to as a Coupe Roadster referring to its convertible top and roll up windows. This example is a well presented older restoration finished in black with a matching black interior and top. Unlike most Packards which were supplied with dual side-mounted spare wheels, this example has the desirable single rear-mounted spare and the wire wheels are fitted with rare accessory Budd wheel covers. 1934 Packards are highly sought after by collectors today due to their advanced engineering and represent the pinnacle of classic-era automotive design with flowing fenders, v-shaped radiators and low-profiled belt lines.
