A stunningly beautiful twelve-cylinder Packard featuring rare and highly desirable Deitrich Phaeton coachwork, updated to dual-cowl specification. Presented in superb condition as a former high-level concours car that has mellowed lightly with time and use. A magnificent example of classic-era elegance and a worthy addition to any collection of flagship motorcars.
This 1936 Packard 1407 Twelve is a stunning example of the 14th Series, equipped from new with beautifully proportioned and elegant Dietrich-designed Phaeton coachwork. It is offered with an older but finely preserved concours-quality restoration, finished in bold and striking colors, and equipped with a host of period accessories. It was updated with an accessory rear cowl and windscreen at the time of refurbishment, transforming it into a glamorous dual-cowl Phaeton. Since then, it has been maintained in excellent condition by a series of dedicated, knowledgeable enthusiasts. The gorgeous coachwork is resplendent in its vibrant maroon paintwork, which is smooth, glossy, and consistent with this being a former concours car. The body features numerous authentic accessories and options, including dual side-mount spares with matching hard-shell covers, Packard See Rite mirrors, Cormorant mascot, dual search lamps, chrome hood vents, and more. It has the low and purposeful stance that defines this generation of Packard, made particularly dramatic by 139-inch wheelbase, substantial vibration-dampening bumpers, wide whitewall tires, and chrome wire wheels.
