1937 Packard 1507 Twelve

Share on:

Packard produced the Twelve Series from 1933 to 1939. Its name referred to the twelve cylinder engine that displaced 473.3 cubic-inches and produced 175 horsepower. The V12 could propel the car from zero-to-sixty mph in 17 seconds. They featured vacuum assist brakes and clutch. This was also the first year for independent front suspension.

The Convertible Victoria model features four seats and a convertible top designed with blind rear quarters. The design originated in Europe in the late 1920's and several US coachbuilders popularized them. It was priced at $4,490. This car is number 35 of just 45 Convertible Victoria's built out of a total of 1,300 Twelve's built in 1937. It is one of fewer than a dozen Victoria's currently known to survive today.

This car was delivered new to the Jefferson Street Packard showroom in Detroit on October 16, 1937. The original owner of this car is unknown, but a Michigan State University student purchased it in 1952 and drove it for less than a year. It was then placed in storage in Lake Odessa, Michigan where it remained for the next sixty years. It was subsequently sold and the current owners restored it to its original Centennial Blue color with olive top and optional red leather interior. The optional Packard radio was also restored to working condition.

The current owners commissioned a three and one-half year restoration that was completed in March 2016. It retains its original engine, frame and body.
