1948 Packard-Bentley

Post by syakoban » Sat Mar 02, 2019 8:04 am

A friend knows someone who says he's selling a 1948 Packard-Bentley 4 door. I never heard of one and find nothing online. Is there such a car? If so, can you explain what it is?

Thank you.

Your friend's friend is hallucinating. There are Packards and there are Bentleys, and they never jointly built a car. If parts of the two are combined into a single vehicle it is a mongrel.

OR... perhaps the friend has some mix-up in something made for Packard via Mitchell-Bentley. Whatever it is... why don't we see a photo of this thingie?

Are you sure you not mistaken for this one?
