Transformable Town Car
Coachwork: Franay
Chassis #: 1702004
Sold for $209,000 at 2008 RM Auctions - The Astor Collection.
This one-off Packard was originally designed and built by Parisian coachbuilder Franay for the 1939 Paris Auto Show. It was subsequently sold to a French Aristocrat and later seized by the Nazis to transport the German High Command and Generals in and around Paris. When the Americans took control of Paris, the car was used by several U.S. Generals in occupied France. It is powered by Packard's stalwart 320cid/130hp inline eight-cylinder engine.
