It was sold new on March 22nd of 1935 at the W.H. Collins, Inc. Packard dealership in Hollywood, CA. In the 1970s, it was acquired by a California collector and restorer who retained it for four decades. During that time, it was treated to a high quality restoration around 1990, finishing it in two-tone Green color scheme which it wears today. It won a National First Place badge from the Classic Car Club of America.
The car has a battery cut-off switch and two six-volt batteries connected with a solenoid which allows for starting on twelve-volts and operation on six-volts.
There is also an electric fuel pump to aid starting after a period of storage
In 2011, this car was offered for sale at the Hershey auction presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $190,000 - $220,000. Bidding reached $181,500 but was not enough to satisfy the vehicle's reserve. It would leave the auction unsold.
