1930 Packard Eight


Our 1930 Packard Eight 745 Convertible Coupe was delivered to Mr. Earle C. Anthony, a Packard automobile dealer and radio station owner in Los Angeles, California, on February 10, 1930. Nicely concealed under its long hood is a 384.8 cubic inch straight eight cylinder engine producing over 105 hp. The engine was renowned for its reliability, power and smooth operation. Model 740 and 745 chassis were mostly given closed bodies, making convertibles rare by today’s standards. This model 745 is two-tone blue with tan convertible top and rumble seat, dual side mount spares, and wire spoke wheels.

This particular vehicle was purchased from the Magdalena family of Reno Nevada in 1998 and donated to the Harold E. LeMay Museum collection in 2003 from the LeMay Family estate.
