1936 Packard Model 1401 description

1936 Packard Eight 1401 Club Sedan In 1936 the fourteenth series recieved a new radiator which was installed at a five-degree angle. Other than that, it was basically the same to the prior year. This 1936 Packard Eight 1401 has a 320 cubic-inch side valve eight-cylinder engine that produces 130 horsepower and weighs 4815 libs. It has a three-speed synchromesh transmission and four-wheel vacuum assisted mechanical brakes on a 134″ wheelbase with a 5 passenger Club Sedan Body.
In 1936 Packard was producing their 14th Series as the number thirteen had been skipped. It is suspected that thirteen was not used due to superstitious reasons. The 14th Series was the last year for Bijur lubrication, ride control, a semi-elliptic suspension, mechanical brakes, heavy vibration dampening bumpers. It was also the last year for the 17″ option of wire or wood wheels.
This 1936 Packard Eight Club Sedan is unrestored, although maintained for sometime in its life. I acquired this car with the intensions of sorting the mechanicals and giving it an "oily rag" restoration on the body. The rear lower truck door was removed at some point and primed and never installed back. It is present in in the pictures. No logic there that I can come up with. The interior is very usable as is, dash and gauges in great shape, radio, heater, dual side mount spares, trunk rack as options. It has good oil pressure and the bottom of the engine sounds tight, it runs and drives, but not well. I would highly recommendation the next owner undertake a full engine service before use. Remove head with valve service, drop pan and clean and inspect as well as a full cooling system service. Missing air cleaner and correct radiator cap. What you see is what you get, pictures should clearly show and identify condition.
Please note this Packard is titled under its embossed firewall number (Thief Proof #)
