1938 Six with "Richards" Australian Body Owned By Peter & Ann Toet

This particular Packard was exhibited at the 1938 Adelaide Motor Show by Sporting Cars Limited. It was fitted with Tasma radio, Packard Clock, Deluxe steering wheel, Bonnet
Mascot, wheel trims, Packard crested locking petrol cap and San-tex seat covers.

The car was sold as a demonstrator to a Wagga Wagga NSW doctor (Rego No CA 487). The car then went to Victoria and I purchased it for $300 in 1972 from the third owner, with 80,000 miles on the speedo. The car now has 124,000 miles on the speedo and is very pleasant to drive.
I have retrofitted a Packard R6 overdrive to the vehicle, which allows for economical driving at Freeway speeds.
