1931 Packard 833 5 Place Coupe.

Chassis number: 467 499

Packard took an evolutionary approach to the new 8th Series which debuted in August of 1930, choosing to make subtle refinements over sweeping changes. The car debuted at the height of the Great Depression, so sales expectations were low, and while the 8th Series lived up to the standard expected from Packard, there was little their dealers could do to curtail falling sales due to the struggling economy. Putting economic worries aside, the 8th Series was a particularly fine motorcar. The range consisted of the base 826, deluxe 833, and the flagship 840/ 845 models, their respective model numbers relating to the wheelbase in inches. Packard improved the base engine by utilizing the larger valves and intake ports of the outgoing 734 Speedster. Horsepower output for the 833 was now at an even 100, while the larger 840 and 845 made 120 horsepower. Stylistic changes were minimal, carrying over the same confident elegance of the previous model. The 833 range offered the most variety, with eleven catalog body styles available. As the entry-level 826 was sold only as a sedan, the 833 provided customers a broader array of equipment, style, and luxury.

Despite all of the promise, sales of the 8th Series were down across the board, totaling 15, 450 cars in total. By comparison, Packard sold more 726 sedans than they did all of the 8th Series. In a desperate attempt to boost sales, they decided to roll out the substantially revised 9th Series well ahead of schedule in June of 1931. Even during these trying times, Packard weathered the storm of the Great Depression far better than most of their luxury car counterparts, and they continued to produce America's finest cars throughout the Classic Era, even if they happened to be in smaller numbers than expected.

Presented here is a lovely Packard 833 wearing rarely-seen 5-passenger coupe coachwork from the factory catalog. We seldom encounter closed cars restored with such attention to detail, and this gorgeous example is undoubtedly a refreshing sight.

The car is resplendant in burgundy over black paint which has been done to an incredibly high standard & presents as new. The interior is brand new beige cloth along with beige carpets & a beautifully painted faux wood dash board with a full array of instrumentation. The boot is likewise carpeted beautifully. A single parade style spare is mounted to the rear of the car in its cover.

The story continues under the bonnet with an immaculate engine bay housing the powerful straight eight engine. Like the rest of the car the engine is like new starting instantly & pulling strongly in all gears. The quality of these top end American cars really has to be seen to be appreciated.

This is a large car and is spacious inside, comfortable to drive & easily runs in modern traffic. Purased by the current onwer to reside alongside his silver Ghosts, he tells me he simply could not resist the quality of the restoration done to this car & it was love at first sight when we set eyes upon it. We are in the process of UK registering it. It would not be out of place to describe this car as a brand new Packard delivered 90 years late!
