THE PACKARD 120

At times there were bigger and fancier cars, as well as those that were faster, but if you could afford a Packard you were in a pretty strong position. Packards were well-engineered, good looking in a restrained way and they made the right statement. A Packard clearly said that you had some means but that you were neither a spendthrift nor flamboyant; you simply had taste and style.

Eventually, Packard decided that it made sense to drop a bit down market. There would be no going head to head with Henry Ford or Chevrolet, but there was room for a car that a young executive might want to choose instead of a Buick. That car was the Packard 120. Built on a 127-inch wheelbase, the junior Packard was powered by a cast-iron L-head straight-eight. Power output was 120 horsepower at 3,800 rpm. If you really wanted to, you could even opt for a tachometer to watch that engine speed climb. With a big, lazy engine like that, three speeds were plenty and could be chosen at will with the column shift lever. Leisurely cruising could become even more so with the extra-cost addition of overdrive.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This wonderful Packard 120 has the distinction of previously belonging to the famed Harrah's Collection of Reno, Nevada. The sedan is finished in a shining pale-yellow exterior while the interior features luxurious brown upholstery. The body work stands in very good order with good fitment and tight panels which should come as no surprise as the vehicle was restored to a high standard at some point. The cabin inside presents in equally good condition.

Accompanying the Packard is a history file containing a Harrah's Verification Certificate, a shop manual, and various additional documents pertaining to Mr. Spain's purchasing of the car in 1986.

This is truly a standout example of Packard's 120 model and is ready to be shown at shows across the country.
