The Dietrich label was typically reserved for custom, full bodied, and special ordered cars from Packard. By this time, Packard was doing most of its coachwork in house. This beautiful Dietrich Convertible Sedan is both big and sleek. The coachwork is typical Dietrich. This essentially left Lincoln, Cadillac, and Packard as the only survivors of the sinking luxury car market.
The year 1938 was nearing the end of the line for the older 8-cylinder engine, with a new design coming out shortly. This model, with its eight and its Dietrich styling, was a very practical car for its time.
The car displayed here has an interesting history, having sat for a long time before a restoration was begun.Also photographed at :
