Lot #2504 - Completed in 2004, the "Gable" 1941 Packard One Twenty custom is the work of California customizer John D'Agostino with collaboration from Oz Kustoms. A student of the pioneer customizers — George and Sam Barris, Joe Bailon and Gene Winfield — D'Agostino has displayed his many custom creations at more than 750 shows all over the world and has been inducted into the Academy Awards of Automobile Excellence and Grand National Roadster Show Hall of Fame. The Gable fittingly pays tribute to Hollywood film icon Clark Gable, who owned a '41 Packard One Twenty with custom touches applied by Howard "Dutch" Darrin. With or without its white Carson top in place, the subtle shape-shifting performed on the body needs several viewings to be fully absorbed. The deep Kandy Red paint plays against the stock Packard chrome, Caribbean wire wheels and Swedish leather interior surfaces, with the iconic Packard cormorant leading the way. Fully street capable, the Gable won two first-place class trophies at the 2004 Grand National Roadster Show and Sacramento Autorama. Comes with extensive photographic construction records and numerous car show items.
