I got these two packards awhile ago with the intention of working on them. Since then I got another car ive been working on and these two have fallen more to the side. The 1948 is in the best condition as far as rust goes. It body is fairly straight and has no rusted through panels as far as i can tell. Only mild surface rust. Interior is almost a total loss but the should be able to be reupholstered and such. the front cluster is still in good condition with intact glass. Floor pans appear to be solid. However, the straight 8 engine and tranny are incomplete. Both are rusted up quite bad and the spark plugs were removed and have filled p with dirt so i almost guarantee it is seized. The 1949 has a pretty rusted up rear quarter panel on the passengers side and a rusted out rocker panel on the same side. other than that besides rusted out floor pans it only has mild surface rust. interior is a total loss. However, it has a sun visor and spotlight on the car which came as options. The engine and tranny both appear to be complete and it appears someone attempted to work on the engine within the last 20 years as it has newer looking spark plug wires. My guess is that it would be able to run with some work. i would suggest the 48 as a parts car for the 49 unless you want to deal with engine swaps or the like. Both trannys are 3 on the tree. 49 has a clear title and I believe the 48 has a salvage one.
