Only 750 built total! It was a Glamorous automobile. Each were sent
to Mitchell Bentley for the hand-crafted modifications. These were
among the most expensive cars at the time. Directly competing with
the Eldorado and Skylark. We just acquired 25 cars from the Claude
O estate. He had a full-time mechanic maintaining his cars. He
wanted to be able to drive any car at any time.
EXTERIOR: Hand formed rear quarters, full rounded wheel openings, a
scooped hood, continental kit, extra trim and set of chrome wire
wheels set it apart from all other Packards. The body is straight
with no significant issues. Beautiful factory Gulf Green metallic
color. It has a smooth glossy finish. Overall, the chrome trim is
bright and smooth. A sparkling set of chrome wire wheels are
mounted on wide whitewalls.

manufacturer's flagship model. Custom built by Packard in limited
quantities. Very sought after for obvious reasons.
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to
assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are
answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video
that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are
displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car make an
appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment
there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car,
your admission will be refunded and you will be given a 1 year
