Description/extras: The Packard Twelve is considered by many to be one of the finest automobiles produced by Packard and one of the most significant creations of the classic car era. Only 446 Packard V-12's were built in 1939, making these cars quite rare and very collectable.

These cars are stunning both inside and out, with the long and flowing front hood hiding a side-valve twelve-cylinder engine that was refined, powerful, smooth, and quiet. This example has been fully restored, presenting in great condition inside and out. Being an older restoration, there are a few minor flaws in the paint, but overall the car presents in great condition.

The interior is in excellent condition, with new and reconditioned carpet, leather and roof lining. The timber trimming is original, has no cracks and presents beautifully. 1939 introduced a transmission refinement to column shift versus the original floor shift of prior years.

The engine runs smoothly, and the car drives well, making it a perfect historic/club car. With the rich history and reputation of the Packard Motor Car Company, this is the perfect opportunity to own a rare piece of American post-war motoring history.
