Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.

Classic Car Overview

In the late 1920s Packard was riding high on a wave of record sales and profits. With little indication of the economic trouble to come for the luxury car market as a whole the company forged ahead with its latest model the Seventh Series introduced in August 1929 just a few months shy of the stock market crash. The range opened with the 726 and 733 Standard Eight followed by the uncharacteristically sporty 734 Speedster culminating in the 740 Custom Eight and finally the flagship 745 Deluxe Eight. Ray Dietrich head of Packards in-house styling department modified the design language he created for the 6th series making it lower and more graceful while shedding any ties with the 1920s once and for all. Packard now employed the same standard bodies across the range while the hood length made up the difference in wheelbase between the models.Among the vast array of open and closed body styles offered by Packard and other coachbuilders on the 740 Custom Eight chassis few are as iconic as the factorys own Roadster. Styled and built at Packards in-house body shop it exemplified the glamor and grandeur of the early 1930s and remained one of the most collectible classic-era American automobiles. This superbly restored 1930 740 Custom Eight Roadster beautifully presented in dark green with striking red leather upholstery has been fastidiously detailed to concours quality standards boasting exceptional paint brightwork and detailing. The previous owner purchased the car in 1989 from well-known Canadian enthusiast Aldo Bigioni and it has been part of their collection for over 34 years. When first acquired the car was a complete car sporting an older restoration likely done in the 1960s or 1970s. The car underwent a multi-year restoration which was completed in 2010 under the new owners tenure. In 2020 the car received a major mechanical service including rebuilding the brake system installing an electric fuel pump and new overdrive unit restoring the radiator and rebuilding the starter motor. A full list of work performed is available for review.As offered it is in fine condition thanks to expert care in the hands of its most recent owner.
