If you really know your Packard history, then you know they had some great pickups before WWII. However, this 1949 Packard pickup is a pure fantasy come to life. It\'s a custom-built pickup created from the 23rd Series cars - one of the most attractively streamlined designs of its era. You even get nice classic details like whitewall tires, Packard wire wheels, a classic bench seat interior, bright factory gauges, and the powerful straight-eight motor. What may just be the most impressive part is how everything looks like it could have been done by Packard. The rounded B-pillars have the clean style you\'d get from a factory stamping. The rounded fenders of the bed go well with the curves of the front. And a nice application of red helps it look even more uniform. So take some extra time looking over a unique creation that dares to dream about a post-war Packard pickup

This truck may be a custom creation, but it represents a lot of realities. After all, it sits on the original Packard chassis almost like a reminder about how robust they built their cars. And when combined with the big torque of the eight-cylinder motor, we bet Packard could have genuinely made a handy pickup had they decided to expand the 23rd Series line. Plus, the Studebaker bed was the ideal choice for this custom. It not only had a terrific fender design, but it also fit nicely into the rest of the Packard history since they bought Studebaker in the 1950s. And it\'s this combination of substance, history, and uniqueness that makes for such an irresistible distinction. That\'s why you know this one-of-a-kind belongs in your garage. Call today!!!
