By the end of the 1920s, Packard had arguably become the last word in American automotive fashion outselling rival Cadillac by three to one. Responsible for lifting Packard out of the post-WW1 depression, the 'Six' range was current between 1921 and 1928. Engineered to the same exacting standards as its larger brethren, the newcomer was based around a beautifully wrought ladder-frame chassis equipped with leaf-sprung suspension and four-wheel drum brakes. Powered by a 4-Litre (later 4.7-Litre) straight-six engine allied to four-speed manual transmission, the 'Six' could be had with a range of elegant factory coachwork. Though, with the plentiful power and torque on tap from its famously durable L-head powerplant, it also boasted a surprising turn of speed.
An older restoration that has been in the current family ownership since 1989, 'DS 8058' is described by the vendor as being in 'good' (engine, gearbox, bodywork, paintwork, electrical equipment) or 'very good' (interior trim) condition. Luxuriously appointed, the cabin features Red leather upholstery up front and Red velour cloth to the rear plus a six-person drinks cabinet. Said to be in 'good running order', this handsome right-hand drive Packard Six cuts a considerable dash for a ninety-six-year-old!
