Lot #5078 - The 120s were the first Packards fitted with hydraulic brakes and an independent front suspension which were mounted onto 120" wheelbase chassis. Power was supplied by Packard's famous inline, 8 cylinder engine, coupled to a floor-shifted, 3-speed manual transmission. The Packard 120 offered here is a handsome example finished in Mint Metallic Green with green leather interior. It was recently part of a prominent California collection where it resided for the past 30 years. Equipped with several rare and important factory accessories, including a very rare set of steel spoke artillery wheels, dual side-mounted spare tires with metal covers and mirrors, factory fender skirts with the "120" porcelain emblems, rear luggage rack, bumper guards, banjo steering wheel and the famous Goddess of Speed mascot.
