In 1932 Packard decided to re-introduce its famous Twin-Six, originally built from 1916 to 1923. The 1932 version would be an updated version, developing 160horsepower, and built on two wheelbases: 142 and 147 inches.
The new multi-cylinder Packard became an instant favorite of those who could afford it - and that included a young film star whose career was taking off - Clark Gable; this was his car. It was sold to Mr. Gable on November 14, 1932, by Packard's Southern California dealer Earl C. Anthony.
Also making this car special is the fact that it was 75% owner-restored. The body-off restoration was completed just in time to be shown at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.Also photographed at :
