"The 1930 Packard 734 Speedster was Packard's answer to the high performance sports car. Developed by Packard's legendary engineer, Col. Jesse Vincent, the 734 combined an extensively modified Deluxe Eight 385cid straight eight and 4-speed gearbox in a modified 134 Standard Eight chassis with a lightweight two seat body to create a lightweight, nimble speedster capable of well over 100mph as it came from the factory. Only 113 originals were built. With so few built and readily available components, several exceptionally well built Speedsters have been built over the years including this beautifully presented example is a great tribute with chassis number 184029 and engine number 184015."
"This car is superbly presented and while it has many features correct to an original Speedster it is not one of the originals. The narrow Speedster body is blue with light blue accent complemented by dark blue leather upholstery and a beige cloth top. Chrome wire wheels carry whitewall tires with dual side mount spares with mirror and beige cloth covers, Pilot-Ray driving lights and a radiator stone guard. Restored to very high standards. A gorgeous and fast Packard motorcar." ~ Reprinted text from here:
