Berline Limousine
Packard first introduced its Model 30 in August of 1906. The company claimed that the car had undergone more than 50,000 test miles before being introduced to the public. The test car was nicknamed 'Gasoline Gus' and in one test, Gus covered 606 miles of Michigan's sandy roads in one day without any repairs or adjustments with the exception of having one tire replaced. The test run was a world's record and Packard capitalized on it with a special brochure titled The Flight of the Thirty.

This particular example was originally delivered to an estate in Bala Cynwdy, Pennsylvania. The owner's chauffeur acquired it by inheritance and used it for a short time as a public taxi. It was restored by the current owner in 1984 for its then owner, and in 2000 the current owners purchased it for themselves. It is the only closed-chauffeur-compartment Model 30 known to exist. Most of the interior remains original.
