This 1933 Packard Super Eight Convertible Victoria is a very attractive car, with its raked windshield, beautiful long doors, V-shaped radiator, fender lights, and elegant lines. It is the production of a three-year body-off restoration that was completed near the close of the 1990s and cost more than $400,000. It was shown at the 2000 Fresno Concours where it won Best of Show. An appearance at the 2000 Mare Island Concours was rewarded with both a Best in Class and Best of Show award. The CCCA Grand Classic in 2000 awarded it a first place and a perfect 100 points. The pinnacle of its concours circuit tour was a class win at the Pebble Beach Concours in 2000.
Since then it has continued to rack up much-deserved awards at many events it has attended. In 2008 it was brought to the Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions where it was estimated to sell for $250,000 - $350,000. It was not surprising to see the winning bid far exceed the estimates, settling at $412,500 including buyer's premium. It is a gorgeous car that is a top contender at nearly every event it attends.
In 2010, this Packard Super Eight was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company Auction held in Amelia Island, Florida. The car was expected to sell for $375,000 - $425,000. As bidding came to a close, the car failed to sell after achieving a high bid of $320,000.Also photographed at :
