    HISTORY OF THE PACKARD CUSTOM EIGHT 443 PHAETON
    The Packard 443 model was unveiled on July 1, 1927. These new “Big Eight” models were still considered part of the 4th series of Packard and all rode on an imposing 143” wheelbase chassis. The Packard 443 catalog offered no less than twenty different body arrangements, ensuring that all individual tastes were well suited. While approximately 7,800 443 chassis were built for 1928, the varying bodies meant that individual production numbers were quite low, with open bodied cars being procured by the most affluent of clientele. Body style 311 was the Custom Eight 443 5-passenger Phaeton – a very imposing aesthetic for the Great Depression era. The Custom Eight 443 Phaeton featured dual side mounts spares and numerous accessories including a folding luggage rack with a removable trunk as well as a rear folding tonneau windshield that could be adjusted by the rear passengers. Today, the Packard 443 Phaeton is considered to be one the marque's greatest models because it achieved a level of engineering, style and luxury that could only come from Packard.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months
