One of a mere handful of twelve-cylinder models to wear the Dietrich-designed Coupe-Roadster coachwork. Formerly owned by Zach Brinkerhoff and restored by the respected expert Mark Clayton. A rare opportunity to acquire one of the best driving and most desirable Packards of the classic era.
The 1207-839 Coupe-Roadster offered here represents one of the most desirable, breathtakingly elegant Packards of the period. The Twelfth series marked a significant step forward in Packard styling, as designers fully embraced the latest streamlined styling trends. Features like bullet headlights, a painted radiator shell, and deeply skirted fenders imparted the new models with a lower, more flowing, and substantial appearance. Between the two V12 chassis options, buyers could select one of fifteen body styles – ten on the standard chassis, and five for the long-wheelbase. The illustrious Dietrich name (now under the auspices of Murray Body Corp) would disappear after 1935, but not before turning out a final flourish of spectacular machines such as this gorgeous 2/4 passenger Coupe-Roadster.
