The Packard Twelve was produced from 1933 to 1939. It is considered by many to be one of the finest automobiles produced by Packard and one of the most significant creations of the classic car era. The long and flowing front hood hid a 445 cubic-inch side-valve twelve cylinder engine that was refined, powerful, smooth, and quiet. Most of the Packard production Twelve’s received factory bodies. Only a handful received custom coachwork by such greats as LeBaron and Dietrich. This Packard has custom coachwork done by Dietrich. It is the crown jewel of the collection.
