1939 PACKARD SUPER 8 4-DOOR MODEL 1703 TOURING SEDAN
Finished in classic All Black with beautiful Taupe interior. This incredible motorcar was originally delivered in southern California where it had been in storage for many years. Below you will find a statement from the previous owner on the complete history of this wonderful motorcar. We are pleased to offer this extremely rare find to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates this great American classic. Bid with confidence – this might just be one of the best finds on eBay! A LETTER FROM THE PREVIOUS OWNER REGARDING HISTORY OF THE CAR: This is a type of every old car collector’s dream – an old car sitting in storage nearly its entire life! First, let me tell you two opening remarks and then the story. I use to run a restoration shop in the 1970’s so I am not an ignorant when it comes to old cars and restorations. I still tinker with it as a hobby. So I know what to look for as far as problems. Since 1988 I have been the Director of an International Christian Non-profit Organization called: Laymen Ministries. (see: www. Lmn.org) From time to time we have people donate items to sell to support one of the many mission projects worldwide: i.e. building and staffing jungle schools for indigenous kids in the Philippines; operate prison ministry programs in Romania and the Philippines. English language schools in China, medical work in North India and Nepal, Medical clinic in Vanuatu; TV programming in South India and Russia, orphanages in Lithuania, etc. On one of our satellite TV programs I mentioned how I use to restore old cars and actually started this Ministry by selling off many of my personal old cars. One viewer was touched by the story and called and said he had a car he wanted to donate. The story is quite interesting. THE STORY: A couple bought this car brand new in 1939. A tragedy struck the family in late 1940 when the husband died. The wife could not drive so she put the car in storage in a big warehouse in Central California. WWII came and went. Then in the 1950s, when her son came back from the Korean War, he was not interested in dad’s old car, so it remained in storage until 1970! In 1970, a Mr. Frank Marcella bought the car for the cost of storage. He cleaned it up, drove it as a hobby car for 2 years, and then parked it on a carport, covered it with old blankets, until a Mr. Wilbur (Will) Richards bought it in May of 1973. He and his wife are the people who donated the car to us. Will used the car for special occasions, such as weddings, etc. but the car was basically parked in storage shed at a Christian publishing house in Mountain View, California from 1973 to 1984. This publishing moved to Nampa, Idaho in 1984 and Will took the car with him to Idaho and from 1984 to 2006 it was sitting in his garage. THE CAR: This is a 1938 Packard Super 8 Sedan. Because the car was in storage nearly its whole life it has only 24,660 miles on it. It is complete and completely original. I have a photocopy of the title from 1973 and other paperwork. According to the spec chart, only 3962 Super Eight cars were produced in 1939. Even the tires are the same ones that came with the car when new. Everything is there, the original spare tire, jack; everything. All the Super 8 hubcaps (with no dents) and beauty rings are on the tires. The hood ornament is complete. The stainless running board trim is there. The car has the radio in it. Will (Mr. Richards) told me that everything was working last time he drove it about 12 years ago, including the gauges. In the trunk are extra gaskets, carburetor, and even a set of 1939 California Worlds Fair license plates.

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
