1936 Packard Eight Convertible Sedan
Coachwork by Dietrich

Chassis no. 9971781
This rare and attractive Convertible Sedan by Dietrich represents a golden era for Packard and for the American automobile industry at large.

A wonderful example of the marque, this particular 120 features a radio, heater, trip lights, trunk rack, turn signals, and fender skirts. It has benefited from over $25,000 in recent mechanical restoration in the hands of the current owner, who has receipts for this work. We are advised by the vendor that the car is sharp and an excellent weekend driver.
