Description: The Packard Super 8 160 (1941); Also known as: Super-8, Nineteenth Series, One-Sixty, 1903, 1904, 1905, 160 Super 8. A total of 3,525 160's were produced in 1941, this limited production car is complete with factory overdrive and a vacuum power convertible top. The selling price was $1,937, plus extra cost for radio, heater and overdrive. The car came with a 356 cubic-inch flat head engine producing 160 horsepow

For 1941, Packard's 19th Series, headlights were incorporated into the fenders and the radiator pushed forward, giving the cars a longer appearance. This Packard was purchased new by a college professor in Asheville, NC who later sold it to another professor at Stanford University.

Today, the Deluxe Convertible Sedan is desirable and rare. It was one of Packard's lowest production models in 1941 and only 100 were built (and seven (some sources say 12) are known to exist today.)

Riding on a 127 inch wheelbase chassis, this Packard is powered by the company's legendary 356 cubic-inch, straight eight motor that develops 165 horsepower. This beautifully restored Packard has been a winner wherever it's been shown.

Mechanically, the Packard 160 shared much of its design with the upscale 180. They shared the chassis design, four-wheel hydraulic brakes, selective synchromesh three-speed transmission and a 160 horsepower straight eight-cylinder engine with hydraulic valve lifters. To distinguish the more senior lines, Packard added luxurious interior appointments, unique hood louver trim and enameled hubcap emblems. Early 1940s Packard innovations included sealed beam headlights, fender mounted parking lamps, and the optional ability to now be 'Cooled by Mechanical Refrigeration.'

Approximately 100 of these convertible sedan models were produced. Convertible sedans, because of the missing room and multiple door openings, were one of the most complex and expensive models. However, due to those same characteristics, they tend to have a low survival rate. This car was first delivered new on December 24, 1940. It is now on its third owner, who purchased it in 2008.
