Re: FOR SALE: 1934 PACKARD MODEL 1100 EIGHT FIVE PASSENGER S

Re: FOR SALE: 1934 PACKARD MODEL 1100 EIGHT FIVE PASSENGER S

Thanks for the kind words Dave. I hate the car selling process but this one has surprised me. A lot of magazine articles and forum posts talk about the value of original cars but my experience so far has been that it is just talk. We shall see.

Re: 1934 1100 Eight Preservation

1934 1100 Sun Visors

I recently had a request from someone who had just purchased a 1934 1100 sedan, his car was missing the interior sun visors and he asked for information on mine. I took some photos and measurements, assuming mine were all original like the rest of my interior. After I sent these to him I noticed wha...
