1940 Packard Super-8 One-Sixty

Share on:

As the 1930's drew to a close, the Packard Motor Car Company found itself facing a dilemma. The newly introduced Junior Series cars grew in popularity, but the Senior Series cars suffered. The economic and political tone of the country dictated a new norm and unfortunately for Packard their higher priced cars began to suffer. By 1940 the manufacturer, largely under the direction of George Christopher, cleverly placed even more distance between the two lines. Prices for Packards ranged from the very modest (less than $700) to the very expensive (over $6,000) for the custom coachbuilt 180 series cars.

This car appears to have similar characteristics of a Darrin but actually is a one-off from the Rollson Co. of New York.

This is the only car produced on a 160 or 180 chassis with the body by Rollson. The 160 series was produced with a thermostatically controlled grille shutters; they close when the engine is cold.

The owner purchased this car in the early 2000s from the previous owner of 25 years. The car has been sitting and was in need of a total restoration. The current owner restored the car and returned it to its original appearance.
