The Sixth Series exemplifies Packard’s impeccable reputation, with smooth, refined 8-cylinder engines across the range and exquisite coachwork that immediately identified Packard owners as possessing the finest available in performance, luxury and style.
It was August 1928 when Packard introduced the 640 Custom line, and the Roaring Twenties were in full swing. The stock market crash of 1929 was over a year away, without so much as a hint of its possibility. In early 1929 Packard even introduced their first sports car, the famed 626 Speedster, for Twenties gents who couldn’t wait to spend their anticipated profits from the surging stock market.
Perhaps the most flamboyant of all the 1929 Packards was the 640 Custom Eight Roadster, a snappy two-seater with a rumble seat, set on the long 140 ½” wheelbase chassis that was typically the reserve of large, commodious 5- and 7-passenger enclosed bodies. It was conspicuous consumption of a very Twenties character with Packard’s usual balance of flair and refinement which endears it to today’s collectors as one of the most desirable models of the era.
This 1929 Packard 640 Custom Roadster is an excellent example of this sought-after model. It is well-restored and maintained and also lavishly equipped with numerous period-correct accessories. The handsome livery consists of a cream body accented by Brewster Green fenders, wire wheels and frame aprons. The green theme carries over to the marvelous leather upholstery which protected by a beige canvas top. Front fenders house a pair of side-mount spares with beige cloth covers, and at the back is a folding luggage rack with wooden slats. The opening windshield has both windwings and a searchlight on the driver’s side. A pair of Trippe Speedlights illuminate the road in front of the stone guard-equipped radiator, topped with a Goddess of Speed (affectionately known as the “donut chaser”) mascot.
This gorgeous Packard was restored some time ago, as indicated by the 1994 AACA National First Prize badge, yet it has been well-maintained and cared for subsequently and presents very well with sound paint, interior, glass and top. The big 385 cubic-inch engine provides ample performance, sending its 105 horsepower through a three-speed transmission.
As desirable in the 21st century as it was 92 years ago when it was built, this Packard 640 Roadster invites the driver and passenger to take to the open road on a search for adventure that began almost a century ago.
