HISTORY OF THE PACKARD 120 TOURING SEDAN
Packard unveiled the 15th series for 1937 at the National Automobile Show in October of 1936. To raise appeal, the company heavily marketed the phrase “finer cars at lower prices.” A new 6-cylinder (internally classified as the 115-C) drew a lot of praise for its innovation and level of comfort that Packard customers were accustomed to. The Packard 120 8-cylinder models appeared virtually the same as the 6-cylinder 115 models except the interior, which was more lavishly appointed. With both the 6 cylinder and the 120 models drawing up so much interest, Packard offered an incredible array of different bodies and styles to choose from. Body style 1092, the 120 Touring Sedan, proved to be a popular model that offered practicality, luxury, style and speed at a modest price. Packard’s strategy paid off in 1937 with sales of the 115-C and the 120 leading to Packard’s largest year of production ever. Today, the Packard 120 models are praised in collector car circles, with unrestored examples proving highly desirable.
