Lot #943 - This piece of rolling art was built of steel, mahogany and maple by one of the premiere builders of Packard concept cars. His cars have been at Pebble Beach, Meadow Brook, The Packard Museum and on international television. This 1926 Packard is an example of the one-off designs that converted a production sedan into a sports roadster. This type of car bridged the gap between the Boat Tail race cars of the 20's and the production Boat Tails of the 30's. It has a modified Packard frame with disc brakes, coil over shocks and a Ford 9" rear end. the engine and transmission are from a 2005 Viper with less than 500 miles on it. It has the kind of performance you would expect from a 500 HP, 2600 lb. car (5.2 lbs/hp). The extended cab fits tall drivers and is finished in leather, wool & wood. This is a one-of-a-kind automobile and virtually everything on it is hand made for this particular car.
