Complementing Packard's continuing technical improvements, 1935 brought important changes in body style and design including a small but very attractive 5 degree rake to the vee-shaped radiator grille, revised hood side vents and pontoon-style rear fenders that now balanced the flowing, skirted front fender profile. The 150 horsepower 384 cubic inch Super Eight was shorter by 3" than earlier Super Eights, one of Packard's most responsive as well as handsomely proportioned models. This Series 1204 5-passenger Phaeton is one of the most desirable and beautiful of all mid-Thirties classic Packard’s. Only the third of its style built, body number 851203 is a CCCA Full Classic and therefore eligible for all the club's events. It has just emerged from thirty-four years in a California collection where it received conscientious and continuous care. It is appropriately finished in light Primrose Yellow with Chocolate Brown wire wheels, a Brown leather interior and Beige convertible top with a full set of side curtains for use in all kinds of weather. It is equipped with dual enclosed side-mounts topped with mirrors, a factory radio and luggage rack. The rear seat has a fold-down center arm rest and the front seats benefit from the easier access of Packard's then-new B-pillar hinged "suicide" doors. Although it was restored some time ago it is still in exceptionally fine and presentable condition that reflects the quality of its restoration and the care it has received.
