Title: Well sorta a hunting thing
Post by: [Blocked] on December 15, 2017, 07:34:03 PM
I've been hunting for one of these long sleek beauties for a while now. Runs and drives great. Needs some finishing touches but is good general condition. Interior only needs a little touching up here and there. Not looking to do a restoration just a flashy weekend driver. Has the original super straight 8, 3 on the tree and seats 9. Just need about 40 acres to make a u-turn. 1940 Packard with 69000 original one owner miles. You know the little old lady that only drove it to church on Sunday. Yeah... Right... maybe Bonnie before she met Clyde!!! Should know by Christmas if shes comin' home to my barn.

Beautiful car.  Very similar body to the 1940 Cadillac that my wife and I had on our wedding night (one of her uncles owned it).  Dutch - I have an old friend who is now living down in the St Louis area who had a Packard of that vintage which he completely restored - if you get it and need any advice he may be a good source of info.  PM me if you get to that point and I'll send you his contact info.  He's into Packards and old Buicks, I just talked to him about a month ago as my bro-in law is restoring an old Riviera & needed some engine help, he's still all about his cars.

Yeah Yari, I'm cheap, but that might be overboard even for me!  The better half is even tighter with a dime, but I'm pretty sure I'd have met with considerable resistance if I'd suggested it.   --099-780 @--0--0136 --099-780

Nice find Dutch...back in the early 70's my ex father-in-law enjoyed restoring old cars. We were in Cullman, Ala and found a 1940 Packard in a barn and he bought it. He did an awesome job restoring it and would drive it to church on Sunday's. Your so right as you needed a football field to turn it around...LOL Hope it finds it's way to your barn.

Okay, to finish this up... or as Paul Harvey used to say "the rest of the story"!

I made what I thought to be a fair price offer of 10 grand cash green American. They thought they'd get more at auction. I opened the bid at my original offer amount. I thought this was only fair. Then someone else placed a bid of 15 grand. My thought was good for the sellers they were right. This all occurred 2 days after Christmas. I licked my wounds for a bit and moved on. Well last night I got a call from the sellers, guess what... The buyer still has not paid the auction house so the sale is void. Now the sellers have to pay the commission and listing fees which comes to 3500. They asked me if I'd consider buying the Packard for my original offer. Here comes a teaching moment... I said no but I'd be willing to make them a new offer of 5 grand cash green American. They said they couldn't possibly do that. I reminded them of the old fable "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush". My offer will stand for a week then it and I are forever gone.

I'm still hunting for my black beauty...                                            as Harvey said..............            Page 2

if they don't bite, 10K- their 3500 would be a good offer. good luck

Hmmmm . . . . other than the fact that I don't have room to store it and I really don't need another project right now (don't ever tell my wife I admitted that), I'd be hard pressed to pass that one up.  Really a shame that the owner has to take it in the shorts for the deadbeat bidder, but such is life.  Yep, in hindsight he shoulda jumped on your first offer.  Love the car though!

I like the way you do business Dutch. I don't blame you one bit for lowering your offer. You offered them a fair market price and they declined your offer. It was obviously a fair offer or they would not have offered it to you the second time at the same price. I've got a feeling you will probably end up with that car for about $7500. In the end it will make 2 parties happy. Look forward to hearing of your purchase.
