Condition & Features

This 1928 Packard 526 Runabout is a machine for the person who knows the difference between a car show and a concours. A Packard was a sign of wealth and distinction when it was new, and the reputation has only grown as these elegant machines have only grown rarer. Packards have always been about providing premium motoring, but this one shows a high level of class in its originality. The bodywork, chrome grille, solid pinstripe wheels, lights, foldable luggage rack, and all other major components look like they were in the care of someone who knew that maintaining did not mean fidgeting. This car was refreshed about forty years ago, which was more about extensive maintenance than replacement. The Runabout body style is one of the most iconic forms of the era. You have an open motoring roadster for when you want personal elegance, and then the foldable rumble seat is there for everything from extra friends to a place of honor in parades. For added weather protection, there is a folding canvas top with the factory-correct side curtains to fully button-up this classic. Because this Packard would spend most of its time open to the world, the interior perfectly complements the exterior. The original black leather seats coordinate well with the earthtone green and black accents on the outside. The real wood panels inside complete this organic feeling. There might be a place or two that could use a new lacquer finish for those who don’t cherish absolute originality. Overall, it’s hard to find a piece that has been replaced (or needs replacing) in the 87 years since this luxury car first left the factory. There is plenty of space for the driver and passenger within this car’s 126-inch wheelbase (because 1928 was the fifth year for this series, this is often referred to as a 5-26 or 526 model). Powering this Packard is the 289 cubic-inch straight six cylinder motor that is mated to a three-speed manual transmission (pre-synchromesh). 1928 was the final year for the “Single S
