This 1922 Packard Twin Six Roadster was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held at Meadow Brook. The car is powered by a 424.1 cubic-inch engine and is capable of producing 90 horsepower. It has two cast iron block of six-cylinders making a total of 12, and thus the reasoning for its name, the Twin Six. There is a three-speed selective-sliding gearbox and mechanical rear wheel brakes. It has been treated to a full ground up restoration and then shown at various concours events in the United States. It is finished in maroon with black accent and black fenders. There are artillery wheels which are painted yellow with a red pin stripe. The interior features black leather upholstery with matching top boot and side curtains.

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.

Cape Top Touring
Coachwork: Brunn
 
The 1922 Packard Twin Six was the most monumental of American automobiles, with a 60-degree V12 engine that powered a variety of body styles.

Mrs. Agnes Jane Reeves Greer of the Greer Steel Company, Dover, Ohio, commissioned this unusual, one-off Cape Victoria body by Brunn. She was born in the last years of the 19th century. She didn't like doors, which she regarded as cumbersome, so she took it upon herself to draw up a formal carriage for the Twin Six chassis which had none. Brunn & Company in Buffalo constructed this design for her in their coachworks. She wanted a vehicle that resembled the Amish buggies common to the area. The car is completely original and indicates 12,710 miles since it was brand new. The Packard remained in the Greer family until the early 1970s and then was sold to the Canton Classic Car Museum in Ohio where it remained until very recently.
