Runabout
Engine # 184092
Sold for $1,765,000 at 2019 Gooding & Company : Amelia Island.
The Packard 734 was never advertised or promoted by the company. Only a few knew of this option and as a result, only a few were ever created. The cars had high performance characteristics and matching stylish appeal.

In 1929, Colonel Jesse Vincent had a one-off speedster constructed to prove the benefits of a lightweight vehicle mated to a potent powerplant. The result was a car that could exceed 109 mph, which was an astonishing accomplishment at the time. Alvan Macauley, the Packard chief at the time, was impressed, and commissioned the 734 Speedster Series.

This example is a Speedster Runabout with a boat tail rear end. Building in this configuration reduced the overall weight of the vehicle by around 455 pounds. Under the hood, the stock 106 horsepower engine was given a twin throat carburetor, high compression head, and a finned exhaust manifold, among other improvements. The result was an increase from 106 to 145 bhp.

This car was shown at the 2006 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
