Convertible Sedan
Coachwork: Dietrich
The Model 1605 features a Dietrich-designed Packard body. 1938 was the final year for the Super 8, which is built on the large Senior chassis.

This car was purchased new by a doctor in New Jersey from Longacre Square Packard in New York City. As a summer car on the Jersey shore, it accumulated minimal mileage. One day while driving, the good doctor lightly hit another vehicle, creasing both front fenders. As a tinkerer, he decided to repair it himself. He removed the fenders and radiator shell and little else. Perhaps he was in over his head, as the car would sit, partially disassembled, for many years until his passing. It would also survive a garage fire.

Upon the doctors passing, the car was hastily reassembled and sold. The current owner acquired it in sad shape and soon commissioned a full restoration returning it to its original glory.
