History About Packard’s 1502 Super Eight Convertible Sedan Model:
Things literally couldn’t have been better for Packard as they rolled into 1937. With nearly 50 models to choose from on over four chassis designs, they were able to capitalize on every facet of the market audience.
New features included standard hydraulic brakes and new Safe-T-Flex independent front suspension for smoother road feedback, with the elimination of the outdated Bijur lubrication system as well as the adjustable ride control system.
From entry level options to the expensive luxury models they were well known for, they could truly cater to the needs of all buyers.
It was for this fact, they sold more units at the end of the 1937 than they would ever match again! Although, the majority of those units sold, some 90% to be more exact, were the entry level 115 or 120 Series models, the balance of Senior models like the Super Eight and V12 continued to be built in limited supply and continue to be the most sought after today!

This Packard has been cared for very well by all former owners, who proudly used this vehicle on fair weather days for special events or classic car gatherings.

It now shows 18,308 miles on the odometer which can only be assumed to be the amount acquired since the completion of the restoration. As a Classic Car Club of America Full Classic, it is proudly eligible for annual CCCA events and CARavan tours. Not to mention AACA and VMCCA club events as well.
