1937 Packard 120

As one of the Nation’s premier builders of fine motorcars, Packard cre- ated a name for itself as it carved out a niche in the luxury car market. That reputation as an extravagant car maker would come to haunt Packard as the depths of the Great Depression took hold. It was only by building cars that in- vaded Buick and Oldsmobile’s territory that Packard survived through the 1930s. So it was that when Packard introduced the One Twenty in 1935 it solidified its place in the mid-priced market and managed to hang on for a few more decades, something that many of America’s luxury car builders failed to do. Offered here from the Chester Harwood Collection of fine cars is a superbly restored 1937 Packard One Twenty Sedan that carries a commanding presence as one of America’s best cars. Riding on a 120-inch wheelbase (hence the name One Twenty) Packard’s medium priced car looked great as a roadster or coupe, but it was no more formal looking than in the body #1093 sedan. This example has been fully restored and carries a classy and formal dark brown finish that’s perfect for a Packard of such pedigree. Styling for Packard in 1937 was smooth and graceful with a tall andelegant radiator grille flanked by two bullet styled headlamps complete with Packard driving lights. Elegantly styled fenders are accented by side mounted spare tires with Packard hard shell metal covers. The lovely color is set off by wide white wall tires with factory rims and Packard One Twenty hub caps with beauty rings. The cavernous interior is pure Packard luxury with fine upholstery complete with pleats and buttons. The dashboard is pure Art deco with elegantly styled gauges, knobs, switches, and the speedometer and clock occupy each side of the dash for a well- balanced look. Rear seat passengers are treated to spacious and comfortable seating that is simply unheard of in a modern car. Power for this Packard comes from its tried and proven 282 cubic-inch L-Head inline eight with 120 horsepower. The pride of Packard shines through on this finely restored One Twenty Sedan. The versatility of this classy sedan is clearly evident as it’s a suitable car for any show, but is also capable of carrying the entire family on any tour. For dependability that can’t be matched combined with Packard’s fine styling of the 1930s this One Twenty Sedan is a car for all occasions.
