HISTORY OF THE 1938 PACKARD TWELVE: At $8,355 it was the most expensive Packard in 1938 Series 1608, 175 bhp, 473.3 cu. in. L-head V12 engine, three-speed manual transmission, coil spring independent front and semi-elliptic leaf spring rear suspension, four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes with vacuum booster. Wheelbase: 139" By the 1930s, the Packard Motor Car Company had a long pedigree with twelve-cylinder engines. The first, the Twin Six of 1916 to 1923, had become almost synonymous with the genre, phased out only when the modern Single Eight was introduced in 1924. But while the Single Eight set new standards for smoothness and agility, by the early 1930s the multi-cylinder wars had begun again in Detroit. Cadillac introduced V12s and V16s in 1930, and Pierce-Arrow, Auburn and even Franklin had twelves in the wings for 1932. Resurrecting the Twin Six name, Packard met the challenge with a completely new engine. A 67-degree vee, the new powerplant displaced 445 cubic inches, just 20 more than the old engine, but developed 75 percent more power. In 1933 the name was changed to simply “Packard Twelve,” and two years later displacement rose to 473.3 cubic inches, making 175 brake horsepower. Packard Twelves received coil spring front suspension and hydraulic brakes for 1937, later than the more junior series, as well as a vacuum-assisted clutch. In addition to production bodies and chassis sent for custom coachwork, Packard cataloged a number of styles from the major coachbuilders, among them Dietrich, LeBaron, Rollston and Brunn. Although Hermann Brunn had apprenticed with his uncle’s carriage-building firm, when he set up his own company, Brunn &. Co., of Buffalo, New York, in 1908, it was for the design and construction of automobile bodies. Brunn’s business got a boost in 1920 with a contract for Lincoln bodies, which continued and grew after Henry Ford bought Lincoln in 1922. Although closely associated with Lincoln, by the 1930s Brunn was also building custom and semi-custom styles for Pierce-Arrow, Cadillac and Packard. One of the distinctive styles of the late ‘30s was the cabriolet, a seven-passenger semi-enclosed type built either as the All Weather style, with removable roof over the chauffeur’s compartment, or Touring Cabriolet with a fixed roof and clerestory windows over the windshield. Either could be had as a collapsible cabriolet, in which the rear roof of the passenger compartment retracted, or non-collapsible, with solid rear quarters and non-functional landau irons.

Financing

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


Terms available up to 144 Months
