In my opinion, the ’41 Cadillac is the ultimate tour car. It has plenty of power with its 346 cid L-head V-8 mated to a smooth 3 speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, and rear semi-elliptic leaf springs. In addition, it is equipped with hydraulic drum brakes. The 126 inch wheelbase makes the ride smooth and firm. This ’41 has had a charmed life. It was part of the Lindburg family collection for the last 55 years. The Lindburg family was the Cadillac Distributor for the Midwest and they operated a Cadillac Agency in St. Louis, Missouri until 2006. Now out of long time storage, it is ready again to hit the road. The maroon paint is excellent as well as the tan leather interior. . The Cadillac is sitting on brand new period style radial whitewall tires making this car ready for caravans. A new hartz cloth black top was installed this year. This car is considered a full Classic by the Classic Car Club of America. Come drive it—you will want it in your collection. $98,500.00
Specifications: Series 1404, 150bhp 384.4 cu.in. L-head, straight eight engine, three-speed selective synchromesh transmission, semi-elliptic suspension, four-wheel mechanical brakes. Wheelbase: 139"
In 1936 the Packard Eight, Super Eight and Twelve continued to be built on an individually separate basis. The bodies on the Super Eight and Twelves were interchangeable, wheelbase for wheelbase, with only the interior appointments being different. The bodies also continued to be constructed of wood and steel.
For 1936, the entire Packard range underwent only minor revisions. The models were known as the Fourteenth Series as the number thirteen had been skipped, presumably for superstitious reasons. The Fourteenth Series was the last year for Bijur lubrication, ride control, a semi-elliptic suspension, mechanical brakes, heavy vibration dampening bumpers and the 384.4 cubic inch straight eight engine..
The Super 8 was given the new sloped grille with chrome vertical bars that were actually thermostatically controlled shutters. The shutters would open and close automatically depending on the engine heat. The fender styling was altered slightly as were the hood vents and headlamp trim. Under the hood the only change was the new Delco-Remy ignition system.
This highly original Packard Super 8 Coupe Roadster was the subject of an excellent restoration a few years back. Sold new by Alberta Packard in Calgary, Alberta, the history is of this fabulous Packard is known from new. Accessories include radio, heater, metal side mount covers, Senior bumpers, rumble seat, etc. The elegance of this stylish, very original Packard is further enhanced by its chrome wire wheels. It’s impressive condition today is due in large part to the fact that this Convertible Coupe has been well cared for and maintained. All the parts were restored to meticulous condition to return the Convertible Coupe to its former glory.
. The 1936 Packard Super 8 Convertible Coupe not only has style, but a real road presence. In the 1936 model year Packard built only 1,492 Super Eights, which also makes this a very rare and desirable model. This Packard starts and runs excellent. It goes down the road with ease and is a pleasure to drive---Just Ask The Man Who Owns One!
