CCCA Senior Winner, ex-General Lyon and Tom Barrett Collections

$458,000

Harry's Thoughts

This is one of the most significant Packards produced. Between the elegant and sporty design of the Dual Cowl Sport Phaeton and robust Twelve drivetrain, this is an iconic Packard.

THE ESSENTIALS

This is a beautiful older restoration of the iconic 1936 Packard Twelve Dual Cowl Sport Phaeton (Model 1407) that still shows very well after having earned a CCCA Senior National First place.  This Phaeton has been part of some of the most important collections of classics, including being part of the late General William Lyon’s collection for 25 years.

Shown is its classic Packard Blue with light tan leather interior and a tan Haartz cloth canvas convertible top, this has just the right look.  The rake of the windshield is perfectly matched with the rear windshield in the rear cowl.  This is considered one of the most sporty designs on a Packard, and the execution was brilliant.  The 144 inch wheelbase and the venerable Packard twelve engine make this one of the best performing motorcars of the classic era.

In 1983, General William Lyon acquired the Phaeton from Tom Barrett in Arizona.  It was part of his beautiful and important collection of classics until 2008, when it was sold to Gordon Apker of Washington.  Mr. Apker showed it at the CCCA Grand Classic and earned Senior Badge 2825, winning a national first place.  He enjoyed the Packard until 2011, at which time it was acquired by George Karamanolis.

This is one of the ultimate sporty Packards and it has been maintained and enjoyed by very notable collectors throughout the country.

Interesting Fact: The Packard Twelve was only in production from 1933 to 1939 and was a range of V12 luxury vehicles that were built by the Packard Motor Car Company in Detroit. This vehicle originally features a standard bodywork, that signaled an industry wide decline in custom bodywork. There is a powerful 7.3-liter V12 engine used in the Packard Twelve that gives the vehicle 160 horsepower at 3200 rpm, making it a powerful model for its day and age. A shorter wheelbase version of the Packard Twelve known as the Model 1005 was available in ten different body styles ranging from a generic two-seater hardtop to a five-seater sedan. Moderate changes were made each year, but the 1937 Twelve was the models most popular year with 1,300 being built. A unique piece of history from one of the older models, however, is that U.S. president Franklin Roosevelt gave Joseph Stalin an armored Packard Twelve which became one of Stalin’s favorite cars. Due to its deep history and respectable performance, the Packard Twelve has gone down as one of America’s classic cars!
