The famous slogan for Packard’s quality was “Ask the man who owns one.” Oddly, this 1930 Packard 733 is in such a superior class by its own today that you might never find a peer at car shows or concours events. Packards have always been about providing premium motoring, and this one is true elegance on wheels. The bodywork, chrome grille, lights, and all other major components show signs that they were in the care of someone who knew that maintaining did not mean fidgeting. Black is impressive on a vehicle this size, especially when it covers the body so completely. But, the real reason why it’s so stunning is the intricate gold pinstriping that helps highlight this car so well – it’s even inside the solid metal wheels. The paint is part of an older restoration, which actually just gives it the kind of gloss that will make people mistake it for an extremely exceptional survivor. The coupe body has an impressive presence on a car this large, and Packard’s 133.5-inch wheelbase was actually the short one for the Standard Eights! This style gives you the option of having a closed coupe when you want personal elegance, and then the foldable rumble seat is there for everything from extra friends, to a place of honor in parades. Packard even included the side compartment for your set of golf clubs. Best of all, all of the chrome trim intact and has an impressive shine, including the “goddess of speed” hood ornament.
