Engine no. 901636. Green with tan cloth top over green leather. 446/160hp V-12, 3-speed, dual windscreens, dual spotlights, trunk, single Pilot-Ray, chrome wire wheels, wide whitewalls, dual enclosed sidemounts with mirrors, radio, full weather equipment. Vehicle # 731 11.

Evaluation: Spectacular older CCCA Premier and Pebble Beach class-winning concours restoration by Fran Roxas that has benefited from the most assiduous and careful maintenance and infrequent use. Recently freshened by Stone Barn. Excellent paint, chrome, interior and top. Lightly stretched upholstery and outstanding interior trim. The engine compartment is bright and clean with trifling evidence of use. An awesome automobile represented to have only 20,710 miles from new. One of five built with this coachwork.

Bottom Line: As it should have, this magnificent V12 Packard attracted abundant attention here. It had been offered by RM at the NY Auto Salon and Auction in 2002 where it was bid to $275,000 and showed exactly the same 20,710 miles as it does today (casting some doubt on the “actual miles” representation). It took 15 bids to reach the reserve at $460,000, then another 10 to finally change hands, a fully deserved exceptional price for an historic car.

    I just completed a valuation request for my 1934 Packard Club Sedan, but it didn’t ask other model which is Packard Twelve Club Sedan. The Twelve cylinder makes a difference in the value
