1949 Packard Super 8
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 Super Eight Touring Sedan featured here is finished in stunning Ebony Black over a stunning original Taupe interior. This particular example came out of North Dakota where the car is known to have been in collector ownership since the 1970’s. Largely original, this Packard has never been fully restored with the exception of a single sympathetic repaint that was reputedly performed in the 1980’s. A sticker from the 1984 National Packard Meet in Houston, Texas, is still present in the right rear window and only adds to the charm of this largely original motorcar. Today, this 22nd series Packard presents wonderfully with some slight patina and displays only 71,909 actual miles on the odometer. The Super Eight Touring Sedan is offered here courtesy of John Sherman; Daniel Schmitt & Company’s General Manager and a Packard collector who has enjoyed this Packard as part of his personal collection for some time. We are proud to offer this 1949 Packard Super Eight Touring Sedan to the most astute collector or enthusiast who appreciates the charm and appeal of highly original and unrestored motorcar.
