One of the most desirable body and engine combinations available on a Packard: a 1938 Twelve Convertible Coupe.
Aside from having the desirable convertible coupe body with rumble seat, this Packard Twelve is equipped with a trunk rack, radio, heater, turn signals, Trippe lights and dual enclosed side-mounts with metal covers and mirrors.
In 1938, Packard offered the Twelve with 14 different body styles and constructed 566 in various configurations. Only a small fraction of those were convertible coupes, and they remain among the most sought-after of any twelve- or eight-cylinder Packards in existence.
The Packard Twelve Convertible Coupe – 1139 was put on sale at a price of $4,370. Sold For $165,000 RM | Auctions – ST. JOHN’S (FORMERLY MEADOW BROOK) 30 JULY 2011
