Many Packard enthusiasts consider the Eleventh Series of 1934 to be the pinnacle of the marques pre-war design efforts. From the Standard Eight through the flagship Twelve all 1934 Packards shared the same elegant and sophisticated form that placed them among most desirable cars in America. While the 11th Series design was similar to the outgoing 10th Series subtle improvements like the deeply curvaceous front fenders lent a fuller more glamorous appearance. Beneath the skin mechanical improvements were again relatively minor but significant enough to make it a leader in this elite and prestigious class. At the top of the food chain sat the Twelve bristling with the sort of grace power and elegance that continues to define the classic era.The Packard 1107 Twelve offered here is equipped with crisp and attractive Club Sedan coachwork from the factory catalog. With pleasing proportions and a well-balanced mix of style and luxury the close-coupled Club Sedan body is an excellent example of Packards in-house design talent. This car was treated to a high-quality restoration many years ago and it has been well maintained over the years most recently as part of a collection of significant Classic Era automobiles. Finished in red over camel-colored upholstery it is a handsome specimen with an inviting honest character that makes it the perfect choice for touring and relaxed driving pleasure. Overall the dark red paintwork is quite attractive with smooth finishing that is consistent with a high-quality restoration. Likewise body alignment is excellent and all four doors fit well. Period correct accessories include a cormorant mascot atop the body-color radiator shell dual side-mount spare wheels Pilot Ray driving lamps and a trunk rack to supplement the integrated boot between the rear wheel arches. The brightwork is in very good condition with some minor pitting and patina noted on close inspection. Equipped with painted wire wheels and wide whitewall tires this Packard has an appealing and attractive presence.The well-appointed cabin features lovely camel-colored wool fabric upholstery faithful to original specifications. It is in excellent condition in both the front and rear compartments with matching door panels and contrasting brown carpets to round out the inviting luxurious interior. The polished alloy instrument panel is set into a restored woodgrain-effect dash and the same trim repeats on the window surrounds. Lovely black and cream-faced gauges switches and interior fittings are all in excellent condition. Aimed at the owner-driver the club sedan is quite user-friendly delivering an equally enjoyable experience for the driver or passengers.When new the 445 cubic-inch V12 was rated for 160 horsepower with each of those ponies delivered with superlative refinement. This example is no exception and runs quite well with the smoothness and near-silent operation expected of a well-sorted Packard Twelve. Power goes through a 3-speed manual gearbox that is delightfully easy to operate thanks to synchronized 2nd and 3rd gears. Engine bay cosmetics are quite good with proper Packard green engine paint on the block and heads and black porcelain enamel on the manifolds. The finish on the exhaust manifold has flaked off which is not out of the ordinary and the engine bay shows signs of regular use in certain areas though the overall presentation is tidy and honest.The 11th Series Packard Twelve had few peers in its day and the same sentiment rings true today. When new the Twelve was coveted for its style performance and unparalleled refinement and todays collectors cherish these magnificent automobiles for the same reasons. This 1107 Club Sedan is no exception and is a well-sorted and delightfully honest example ready for its next enthusiastic owner to drive and enjoy to the fullest. Recognized by the Classic Car Club of America as a Full Classic it is ideal for their CARavan touring events or simply as a most satisfying motorcar for casual weekend outings.Offers welcome and trades considered For additional details please view this listing directly on our website https://hymanltd.com/vehicles/6777-1934-packard-twelve-sedan/
