The 1937 Packard Twelve Roadster Coupe is viewed by many expert collectors as the finest American automobile ever manufactured in the U.S. This was the 15th Series Packard Twelve which came with Safe-T-Flex independent front suspension, four-wheel vacuum-assisted hydrauic brakes and a synchromesh transmission. Of all the pre-war Packards, this one was the most fun to drive.
The 1937 Packard Twelve Coupe Roadster featured here is finished in one of the most stunning color combinations of the day: Classic Rich Loam Light Gold with a gorgeous Sable Brown leather interior and matching convertible top. (See dozens of photos displayed at this link.) It was delivered new in Hollywood, California, and to this day, still retains its original firewall data tag. Just released from long-term ownership in a private collection, this car will be fresh on the market. So says Daniel Schmitt & Company, the classic car gallery in St Louis which is currently selling this marque. Rarely is a car this important and with such provenance offered to the public. Often, vintage motorcars like this one are only traded between private collections.
