1922 Packard Twin Six Model 335
|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
The car has an all aluminum body except steel fenders and hood and is 100% original. This same twin-six, 12-cylinder engine with minor modifications was used in WWI airplanes.
The Packard Twin Six production began in 1920 and discontinued in 1923 with a total production figure of 8,750 being achieved during that time. The Twin-Six engines, designed by Jesse Vincent, were mounted at a 60-degree angle and featured an aluminum crankcase. It was the only engine offered by Packard between 1916 and 1920 and powered a variety of body styles.
The estimated price tag of over $100,000 is a clear indication of the vehicles rarity and desirability. Bidders at the RM Auctions agreed with the estimated value and drove the sale price to just under the estimates, settling at $90,750.
