This Packard Twelve was commissioned by the world's wealthiest woman, by millionaire heiress Doris Duke. Doris Duke was the child of James Buchanan Duke and Nanaline Holt Inman. James Buchanan Duke died in 1925 and Doris (aged twelve upon his death) inherited a good share of her father's tobacco fortune, valued at between 60 and 100 million dollars. Duke ordered this custom Packard in 1938 to serve as a chauffeur-driven car to shuttle her between New Jersey and her Newport mansion.

The current owner acquired this car in the early 2000s. The car had been sitting for years and was in need of a full restoration. It had been discovered in New Jersey, not far from Duke Farms, and still wore the DDC emblem on the rear door. A restoration soon followed with bills totaling over $400,000. The original black with tan broadcloth color scheme was used. The interior features a radio set in the passenger compartment and a full bar with all the original crystal.
