1936 Packard Twelve Dual Cowl Sport PhaetonCCCA Senior Winner, ex-General Lyon and Tom Barrett Collections
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.
