120 Inches The Only Victoria Convertible on the 120 Chassis This
particular 120 is one of only two that were built on special order
by a Chicago-area tobacco tycoon. He ordered a convertible for
himself and a coupe for his wife. The custom body was designed by
LeBaron. Along with its inline eight-cylinder engine and 3-speed
manual transmission| this Packard has independent suspension and
4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. In the early 1990s| this car was
found in a barn in the Midwest and purchased by an auction company.
Little is known about the car history between ownership by the
tobacco tycoon and its purchase by the auction company. Shortly
after its rescue from the depths of the barn it was bought by the
award-winning actor Edward Herrmann| who professionally restored to
concours standards. Herrmann was so thrilled with his new car that
he interested the History Channel in producing an hour-long
special| which was dedicated to the detailed restoration and
history of this beautiful Packard 120. Since its time in the
limelight| this Packard has become one of the best known Packard
automobiles to date.
