BaT Auction: 1940 Packard 110 Club Coupe

This post was originally published on this site

This 1940 Packard 110 Club Coupe is equipped with a 245ci straight-six and a 3-speed column-shifted manual transmission. The car was reportedly restored under previous ownership and was part of a private collection for a decade before the seller acquired it last year. It is said to be in good running condition with 97k indicated miles, and an engine oil/filter service was completed about six months ago. This Packard is now being offered with a clean Massachusetts title in the seller’s name.

Club Coupe bodywork differed from the standard 110 with a shorter greenhouse, smaller quarter windows, and a sloped trunk lid, though the same rear window and fenders were used. The trunk interior can be seen in the gallery below, showing the condition of the tread on the spare tire. One of the windshield wipers is reportedly not functioning.

A few imperfections are noted in the paintwork along with a small dent and some cracking on the right rear fender visible in gallery photos. Whitewall tires are said to be serviceable, and a pair of amber-colored driving lights mounted on the front bumper are operational according to the seller.

The cabin is trimmed in grey cloth, and color-matched carpet is present under rubber floor mats. A De Luxe heating system can be seen mounted under the passenger-side dash, and the seller says the instrumentation is functional. The seller states that he has driven the car about 300 miles over the last year.

Packard’s 245ci L-head straight-six was rated at 100 horsepower from the factory and utilizes a 3-speed column-shifted transmission to transfer power to the rear axle. The engine was reportedly rebuilt at some point, though no documentation is available. An oil/filter change was completed 6 months ago and the master cylinder was recently replaced.
