As you can see in the photos, this Packard still has key features like the front windshield and a single windshield for one of the backseat occupants. While certainly dirty and in need of some reconditioning, the black upholstery looks to be in quite good condition. To find an interior so intact is more than just good luck. It also has a single back windshield, which is extremely rare and likely fabricated by order of the buyer.

Packard had contracted with a number of American coachbuilders to create custom-bodied models like this Phaeton crafted out of aluminum panels by Rollston.

Also still attached to the car is the convertible top, so you can keep it down or put it up for a different look.

The 1920s was a high time for Packard. With sales increasing, the automaker’s ability to lower prices on the Sixth Series models. For 1929, the 640 was the shorter of the two versions of the Sixth Series at 140.5 inches for the wheelbase. It and the rest of the Packard lineup did well that year, winning quite a few “conquest” sales by getting people to switch from other car brands.
