Watch This 1940 Packard Get Its Heart Ripped Out

Remember that rusty old Packard we showed you last month? Well, now it’s back for some more camera time, getting its first surgery in the shop before the real work on this SEMA-bound classic begins. Ken Vela and his team at Wikd Kustoms have officially started the reconstruction process for what’s bound to be one really cool classic when it hits the show floor at SEMA in November. The engine has been ripped out, and parts of the interior stripped, laying the foundation for this ground-up semi-restoration. RELATED: The 1965 Ringbrothers Ford Mustang Splitr is an Icon Revived
Details on exactly what the finished product will look like are still very much under wraps, but watch the video (above) and get a closer look at this 1940 ‘Gangster’ Packard. Oh, and Chip Foose makes a guest appearance too. RELATED: The 1948 Packard Super Eight Sedan Was a Stunning Piece of Machinery
