1949 Packard Deluxe
Sedan Car for sale by Daniel Schmitt and Co. in Saint Louis, Missouri 63074
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

The 1949 Packard Deluxe Eight Club Sedan featured here is finished in stunning gold over a completely original tan striped broadcloth interior. This particular Club Sedan has spent the majority of its life in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States and was just released from its second owner who purchased the car in 1972. A meticulously maintained example, this 1949 Packard features completely original trim and the interior has factory seat upholstery preserved under a set of seat covers that are likely dealer ordered accessories! While this Packard has been repainted in a gold shade similar to that used on the 1949 golden anniversary models, the original chrome and interior displays a level of patina that one would expect to see on a 70 year old motorcar. This Packard is accompanied by its original owner’s manual, original policy envelope and both original build sheets (one of which was removed from the underside of the car next to the gas tank). After 70 years the exposed build sheet is still perfectly legible and proves that has always been a well-cared for example. We are proud to offer this incredible 1949 Packard Deluxe Eight Club Sedan to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates originality and factory documentation.

History of 1949 Packards
For 1949 Packard marked its Golden Anniversary and started celebrating in grand fashion with 2,000 gold painted Packards. Packard would upgrade the trim for their 50th year with the front bumpers showcasing full chrome, versus the painted centers from the previous year in addition to center-placed side trim on certain models. These modest changes along with an incredible line-up of models resonated with the American public who helped to make 1949 the second largest production year in the company’s history.
