Packard Motor Car Company began producing American Luxury cars in 1899 in Warren Ohio and later moved to Detroit in 1903. Packard's quickly became recognized as a luxury brand that was not only a premium automobile but also known for its reliability and performance completing several flawless cross-country promotional treks and setting several land speed records. Packard quickly became a worldwide premium name competing easily with European luxury cars of the time. During World War I Packard produced marine and aircraft motors and remained profitable. During the Great Depression as many luxury automakers struggled Packard introduced the Series One-Twenty. The One-Twenty was a line marketed in the highly competitive mid-priced eight-cylinder segment marketed to the upper middle-class buyer from 1935-1941. Featured here is a stunning example of these luxurious cars, a 1941 Packard 120.
This One-Twenty Convertible was treated to a complete restoration some time ago and has been well-maintained and cared for since then. The yellow paint was professionally applied over well-executed bodywork and polished to a brilliant shine. There are a few small paint chips in the paint throughout the body as would be expected from a car that has been driven and enjoyed at shows but otherwise presents very well. The chrome bumpers, related brightwork, and emblems are all present and shine with a deep luster with only some light patina. The canvas top is in great condition and fits well. There are no rips, tears, or even pulls in the seams of the canvas.
Inside the cab was professionally restored and has been well maintained. The upholstery still looks fresh with the carpet showing some light wear and a little soiling here in there. The dash features full instrumentation with a battery, temperature, and oil pressure gauges, a dash-mounted clock, and a factory radio. The manual three-speed shifter is mounted on the steering column, which you don't see anymore on modern vehicles.
Under the hood sits a 282 CID inline 8-cylinder engine. The engine compartment is clean and correctly restored but as an older restoration is showing some light degradation in appearance, but it still purrs. It starts easily and runs down the road very well. Power is transferred through a manual 3-speed transmission to the rear differential. In the 1940s paved roads were still very rare and most roads were still gravel or dirt. However, Packard's being produced just a stone's throw from Woodward and Telegraph (some of the earliest paved roads in the US) were designed to cruise the boulevard. Today vintage Packard's are renowned for their steadiness at speed on today's roads and highways.
Underneath the frame is solid and straight and the floorboards are lightly undercoated with no signs of any rust through. Detailed during the restoration process, the underbody shows some wear but has been well maintained with new shocks, exhaust, brake, and fuel components. This 120 rolls on a set of era-correct Firestone Deluxe Champion wide white wall tires mounted on 15' steel wheels with chrome center caps and trim rings.
Luxury cars of this era are really great to drive. They have great power and roll down the road easily. With the drop top, this vintage luxury car would be amazing for evening or weekend drives and sure to turn some heads along the way. Behind the wheel of this beauty, you will feel like a movie star or starlet! Please call if interested or e-mail specific questions. Thanks for looking.
