This 1948 Packard Super 8 Convertible Victoria was beautifully restored to the highest standards by Fred Mauck and his team at Kings Auto.  Fred Mauck was the Chief Judge for the Packard Club , and this car was restored to his exacting and expert standards.  Fred Passed away last year, a huge loss for the entire Packard community, and this car is being sold by his estate.

After you sign a motor vehicle purchase or lease contract, it may only be cancelled with the agreement of the seller or lessor or for legal cause, such as fraud. However, California law does require the seller to offer a 2 day contract cancellation option on used vehicles with a purchase price of less than $40,000, subject to certain statutory conditions. See the vehicle contract cancellation option agreement for details.
