  • 1948 saw the finalization of Packard’s post-war styling. This new look was highlighted by a smooth headlight to tail light treatment on the side panels with only the beltline ridge appearing to separate what could be considered the fender line. This “free-flow” styling as Packard called it, gave the new cars a striking, modern appearance. The front bumper was integrated into the grille and the well-appointed interiors featured large, comfortable seats while offering generous amounts of hood and leg room. It is no wonder why Packard’s of this generation were loved by the public. The New York Fashion Academy awarded Packard their “Fashion Car of the Year” award for 1948. Totally new for 1948 was model number 2201 the “Standard Eight Station Sedan.” In the 1948 brochure, Packard declared the Station Sedan as featuring “the all-occasion beauty and comfort of a sedan, all the traditional utility of a station wagon … along with new strength, streamlining, and proud distinction.” This four door wagon offered comfortable seating for six and was only offered for three years. Only 3,864 Station Sedans were assembled until 1950, making the “woody” wagon one of the most sought after Post-War Packard models.

    The 1948 Packard Standard Eight Station Sedan featured here is finished in the stunning color combination of Golden Green Metallic featuring beautiful birch and maple wood work over brown interior trim and simulated woodgrain throughout. This particular example was just released from a private collection in Southern California. The Packard was previously subjected to comprehensive body-off-frame restoration that was completed in 2016. After which the Station Sedan was displayed at the prestigious 2016 Hilton Head Concours d’Elegance where the Packard took home a best in class award! Still presenting in like new condition the Packard performs as well as it presents and would make an excellent addition to any premier collection. We are proud to offer this exceptionally restored 1948 Packard Standard Eight Station Sedan (from the first year of model production) to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates blend of form and function that made Packard a legendary American Marque.

    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


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
