Introduced by Packard for 1932 as the “Twin Six, recalling the first V-12 models of 1915-1923 but soon renamed the “Twelve,” Packard’s V-12 entry into the elite-level, multi-cylinder automobile market of the 1930s ranks among the finest and most collectible motorcar lines of the entire Classic Era®. Carefully and methodically developed throughout its production cycle, Packard’s Twelves were built for special bodywork by the finest custom coachbuilders of the time, supplemented by a wide and versatile array of open and closed, factory-catalogued body styles designed by famed automobile stylist, Ray Dietrich. While graceful, luxurious and built for the wealthiest buyers, Packard’s Twelves were mechanically sophisticated to match and with 175 factory-rated horsepower at just 3, 200 RPM, they were, and remain, formidable performers with excellent road manners.

Packard’s Sixteenth Series Twelves were announced in September 1937 and mark the penultimate run of these majestic and powerful motorcars, with only 566 produced in all. Sharing its chassis options with the Super Eight, the Twelve was now offered along a focused, two-model line comprising Model 1607 with a 134-inch wheelbase length and the top-of-the-line Model 1608 offering a generous 139-inch wheelbase.

This lovely flagship 1938 Packard Model 1608 Convertible Sedan features particularly luxurious and versatile Convertible Sedan coachwork offering a beautiful and imposing display of Packard’s renowned combination of grace and quality. Continuing to benefit from a very attractive and well-kept older restoration, it is handsomely finished in Cream, complemented by Burgundy steel wheels, trim rings and bright hub caps, a spacious and inviting Burgundy leather-trimmed interior, and Tan canvas top. Desirable features are numerous, including dual Trippe Safety Lights, dual side-mount spares with metal covers and chrome mirrors, a trunk rack, and Packard’s signature Cormorant radiator mascot. Other welcome comfort and convenience amenities rounding out this luxurious, yet adventurous, 1938 Packard Twelve Convertible Sedan include rear footrests, courtesy lamps, and a retractable glass partition window.

A recognized CCCA Full Classic® automobile, this wonderful 1938 Packard Twelve Model 1608 Convertible Sedan is a great choice for enjoyment with family and friends, plus the wide array of popular CCCA CARavan touring events, where it’s elegant and versatile all-weather coachwork, refinement, and ample power output and torque can be fully appreciated. The driving experience of this Twelve is surprisingly easy, with Packard’s advanced mechanical systems including a vacuum power-assisted clutch and vacuum-boosted hydraulic brakes, with a recent test drive confirming its good running and driving condition, with smooth power delivery. Delivering immense character and presence, it is more than worthy of continued preservation and appreciation, just as it has enjoyed under the prior collector’s ownership.
