This is when they made cars! Only 682 V-12s were made total in 1936. This one\'s official model is a Packard Series 1407 Formal Sedan. It is considered a genuine classic by the Classic Car Club of America. It has been beautifully restored and given some upgrades that make it a better touring car. It has been converted to a 12 volt electrical system and power steering was added. The car was driven here by it\'s 83 year old owner!

EXTERIOR: It\'s a California car, the body is exceptionally clean. It is straight everywhere, there is no rust or damage. The doors shut solid. The owner had it professionally repainted. The dark blue finish is polished like glass. There are only minor imperfections if you go looking for them. It has dual sidemount spares with the optional metal covers. Most of the chrome was done at the time of the paint job. The padded roof is in excellent shape. The rubber running boards were replaced. The wire wheels and white wall tires look great. Other features include the trip lights in front and a luggage rack in back.

INTERIOR: It has a very luxurious interior! All of the upholstery was redone just a few years ago. It has a roll up divider window and in back there is one jump seat and one compartment door. The carpets were replaced and has foot rests in the back. The wood trim is in very good shape. The instrument panel and gauges look like they have been restored like new. It has a factory radio.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The V-12 was 473 cubic inches and produced 175 hp. I was so impressed on how smooth it idles, you barely hear it run. I did find a date code on the engine: late 1935 which indicates it is correct. All the components on the motor look clean and proper. It does have a modern power steering added along with an electric fan to make it more driver friendly.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has a 7th matching wire wheel and white wall tire for a spare. It also has a jack and some miscellaneous extras to go with the car.

UNDERSIDE: Underneath this car looks very clean and orderly. It\'s a California car so it has solid and smooth metal. It has factory power vacuum assisted brakes. A swaybar was added in back.

SERVICE: We inspected the car and only needed to replace a couple bulbs.

This is one of the most esteemed cars of the classic car era. It\'s very impressive because of it\'s sheer size and the luxury it provides. It is like rolling artwork. You can walk admire a Mustang or Camaro by walking around it pretty quickly. You need to stop and appreciate all the beauty this car has to offer, like savoring fine food. It\'s more than just a sculpture, this is a very drivable car. What a feeling you will have behind the wheel of this one! The Classic Car Club does have events and tours you can participate in.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car\'s condition in detail.
