One just 446 Packard Twelves built in two series in 1939, this 1707 Twelve five-passenger Touring Sedan was one of the pre-eminent automobiles from America's finest automobile company. Often described as "built for gentlemen, by gentlemen," even at the end of the Depression Packard had no bank or bond debt, earned a profit and had the best labor relations of any automobile company in America, having never suffered a lockout or strike. These dedicated craftsmen put their finest quality workmanship, skills, materials and efforts into building all Packard’s, but especially the Twelves, all of which were built to individual customer order. This style 1233 five-passenger Touring Sedan is attractively finished in metallic dark grey with a discrete cream coachline and has luxurious tan wool broadcloth upholstery. The Packard cormorant proudly perches atop the radiator grille while the hood is flanked by a pair of enclosed side-mounted spare tires. The steel wheels have chrome trim rings and mount a set of wide whitewall tires. Trippe auxiliary driving lights and a trunk rack complete the exterior while the passengers have a heater, radio and rear compartment footrests for comfort. The interior woodwork is gorgeous, with luster and decorative grain that complements the wool upholstery. Completely restored in the past, it is a proven tour car, yet showable with pride. The engine has been properly done and professionally maintained: this is a Packard Twelve that is ready to be driven across country.
