The LeBaron bodied Sport Phaeton was the work of Alexis DeSaknoffsky, an individual responsible for many of the elegant coachbuilt bodies during this Era. Unfortunately, only four examples of the LeBaron Sport Phaeton were ever created during the period. Since then, there have been a few re-creations that have been commissioned and built atop of the Packard Twelve chassis.
This 1934 Packard is a re-creation of the Packard 1108 LeBaron style Sport Phaeton. It was the work of the craftsman Fran Roxas of Chicago, Illinois. It is currently finished in a light beige color scheme that is period-correct. The interior is deep-red leather and there is a new light-colored top and wire wheels. There are a number of period accessories such as the dual remotely controlled spotlights, Pilot Rays and wind wings. The engine is a 67-degree L-Head V-12 unit that displaces 446 cubic-inches and produces 160 horsepower with the help of a single two-barrel carburetor. There is a three-speed synchromesh gearbox and four-wheel mechanical drum brakes.
In 2009, this Model 1108 Twelve Sport Phaeton was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona where it was estimated to sell for $400,000 - $500,000. The lot was sold for the sum of $352,000 including buyer's premium.
