1937 marked two important changes for Packard: independent front suspension and hydraulic brakes. Longer wheelbase coachwork was available only on the 1507 139 1/4" twelve cylinder chassis exemplified by the popular Touring Sedan offered here, a commodious, comfortable automobile with generous, subdued performance from its 175hp 473 cubic inch engine. The car is finished in Packard's discrete and attractive Indian Maroon with Black fenders with Beige broadcloth upholstery accented with light wood grain trim around the windows and windshield. The rear compartment has center-facing occasional seats, ashtrays, courtesy lights in the rear quarters and rollup shades on the rear door side windows. The front doors are hinged forward and the back doors at the rear giving occupants generous and graceful access. Accessories include wide whitewall tires, wheel trim rings, dual enclosed side-mounts with mirrors, trunk rack, and a rollup division window. Trippe driving lights flank the gracefully raked radiator unusually far apart and a Packard cormorant graces the radiator cap. The paint and upholstery have been redone to good driving and touring standards, the engine is attractive but not presented to show standards and some of the bright work has been re-chromed, creating a sound an usable presentation to touring standards. It runs well and is a CCCA Full Classic (tm) eligible for the full spectrum of the club's inviting events.
