A rare and gorgeous flagship Packard with highly desirable Dietrich-designed coachwork. Restored and lovingly maintained by a series of highly respected marque experts. Ideal for touring and regular enjoyment.
This 1935 Packard 1207 Twelve is a rare and highly desirable Dietrich-bodied Convertible Victoria. At $4,790, the 827 Dietrich Convertible Victoria was the most expensive catalog body available on the 1207 chassis, with only the Custom-line LeBaron All-Weather Cabriolet coming in higher. Sold new by Zell Motor Company of Baltimore, Maryland this car was the subject of a concours level restoration some years ago and is a former CCCA National First Prize winner. Finished in a handsome, period-appropriate shade of dark brown with a complimenting beige roof and saddle-tan leather interior, this gorgeous Packard has mellowed into a marvelous tour-quality car. Factory equipment includes chrome wire wheels, dual side-mount spare wheels with painted covers, trunk rack, and a Cormorant mascot. This superb restoration took place while in the care of the late Bill Hirsch, a well-known and highly respected supplier of restoration parts and materials for Packard, Rolls-Royce, and other classic automobiles. Following Hirsch’s ownership, it passed through the hands of several noted marque experts who enjoyed the car on the road and maintained it in superb order. Today, this Packard Twelve presents in excellent condition, with a slight mellowing of the cosmetics from years of enjoyment by its series of enthusiastic custodians.
