This interesting and worthwhile restoration project is the fourth and final Packard of a fleet that DVCA has been instructed to sell by a wedding car company based in Devon. It has been in the same stable since 2004 and we are informed that a replacement cylinder block, new pistons and rings, and a new ignition coil have all been fitted approximately six months ago. The vendor has told us that he did get the motor car running prior to its transportation to Dorset, but your correspondent would advise a full recommissioning service and probably a fuel system clean. The body appears to be generally sound and solid. All instrumentation is present, the headlining is good, the rear compartment upholstery is in tidy order (including the two occasional seats), and the original front leather bench seat is serviceable, but would benefit from some hide food. There does not appear to be any parts absent from the Packard and the Cormorant mascot is included in the sale.

EMX 367 is also supplied with parts information, sundry paperwork, the V5C registration certificate and its replacement.
