1936 Packard Model 1405 Super Eight Stationary Victoria

In December of 1935, New Jersey industrialist, Arthur McEwan, ordered a new Packard to replace his 1931 Packard Rollston Convertible Victoria. He had a new 1405 Packard chassis shipped from the Detroit factory to the custom coach house of Rollston in New York City. Mr. McEwan so loved the styling of the 1931 Victoria that he requested that Rollston's head designer, Rudy Cretour, replicate the lines of his old car on the newer, streamlined design. Not an easy task, Cretour brilliantly merged the hood and body line to make the transition from old to new.

One significant difference was that, since Mr. McEwan had never lowered the top on his 1931 car, he requested the new one had a 'fixed' top, that is, a convertible top that was permanently in the up position.

The new car was delivered in February of 1936 and sold as a 'Stationary Victoria, Job #580' featuring pontoon rear fenders, lowering quarter and rear windows, an elegant trunk, beautiful wood top structure with long Victoria doors, and a sleek low roof line. The Desert Sand and Pyramid Gray are the car's original colors.

It is said that over their lifetimes the McEwan brothers collectively owned 47 Packards, many of them with custom Rollston bodies.
