I like to cruise Craigslist in search of deals, but more often than not I find cars that in my own humble opinion are priced quite high. While I sincerely appreciate per-war cars, that market seems to be mellowing, especially if the cars are not already in tip top shape. So when this 1933 Packard Eight crossed my screen listed for $54,995, I thought it was relatively well priced, but then I read the description. It is described as a good 50 foot car that needs carb work. Not a great description in general, but it leads me to believe there’s more to be done than what’s listed. I guess I am a bit conflicted. Is this car, in this condition, really worth $55K? Check out the full ad here and give us your take in the Facebook comments.
Worth it? 1933 Packard – $54,995 – needs work
