1936 Packard 120 Convertible Coupe30,700 Miles, Rumble Seat, Side Mounts, Meticulously Maintained
Winning Bid: $65,000
ONLINE ONLY AUCTION at www.classicpromenade.com. We are proud to auction this 1936 Packard 120 Convertible Coupe with dual side mounts and rumble seat. As an older award-winning restoration, with only a little detailing this Packard can used for both showing or touring. The styling of this model is quite exceptional, notice the rakish chrome windshield frame that make it look more like a roadster than a convertible coupe. But the utility of the wind-up windows are there when needed.
This particular Packard sold new in Philadelphia, PA on March 18, 1936. It has spent most of its life in the possession of a Mr. Jack Willam Kruse of Jacksonville, FL. Mr. Kruse purchased the vehicle with 30,000 actual miles. He has fully restored the vehicle and has owned it for several decades. Upon the death of Mr. Kruse, his son, Kolby, inherited the vehicle. However, due to medical reasons, Kolby was unable to drive.
In 2016 the Packard was sold to its current owner. Since then, it has been kept in a private collection in Albuquerque, NM. The complete history of this Packard is very much paraphrased in this description. In fact, this car has a substantial amount of paperwork and documentation telling much of the story this car has experienced.
Throughout its life, this car has hardly been driven. Only 365.5 miles per year to be exact! Given its low millage and meticulous care, this Packard is not requiring any mechanical attention. The venerable 282 CID straight eight offered 110 hp that was transmitted through its three-speed transmission. The 120 model was the first in the Packard lineup to offer hydraulic brakes. The drivetrain components and accessories function as designed, but we would recommend further recommissioning prior to touring. With only minor detailing, the engine and chassis can be ready for show. The charging system has been converted to an alternator and we are awaiting details as to if it has been converted to a 12 volt system.
Cosmetically this Packard looks like new. Truly, the classic Tabaco Cream paint is in outstanding condition despite its age and is free from any noticeable blemishes. The paint is complimented with a red coachstripe that accents the lines, especially with the optional artillery wheels and dual side mounted spares. The tan Haartz cloth convertible top is in beautiful condition and fits tight and is complete with the complementing top boot. The running board rubber is still like new. Other optional features include side wind deflectors, fog lights and accessory turn signal indicators for safety while touring.
The beige leather interior is equally as nice with all materials and touch points showing little to no sign of wear. The rumble seat is also in matching beige leather and in excellent condition. You may have noticed a missing gauge cluster in our photos. That particular item was out for repair during the time of the photoshoot. Updated photos will be uploaded upon completion.
We are very fond of all things Packard, having dealt with many of them over the years. We are very confident in saying that this particular example meets our expectations for quality and condition, and we know that it’s new owner will not be disappointed with their purchase.
