THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

During 1920, the Packard Motor Car Co. announced a new line of relatively small and low-priced models. These new Series 116 six-cylinder cars were sold alongside the company's massive and expensive twelve-cylinder Twin Six. To avoid confusion, Packard referred to the newcomers as "Single Six" models.

While the early history of this Packard remains shrouded in the fog of time past, the more contemporary history of this sporting automobile is quite unique for an American car of this vintage. In the late 1980s, this Single Six Runabout was discovered within Denmark in a state that can be described as rather rotten. Subsequently, an exhaustive nut-and-bolt restoration was completed in Germany. Evidence of this can most obviously be found by the number plate affixed the firewall displaying the cars 'fahrgest' number and 'baujahr', as opposed to its chassis number and build year. The car was purchased by the consigner in 2006 and would participate in a number of long-distance European rallies. The Packard would finally return home in 2011. Once stateside, the car was expertly maintained, with many invoices documenting the diligent care that it received, making up part of the car's wonderful history file. The car has been a fan favorite at a number of local shows, winning multiple Packard International Motor Car Club of Southern California Region, Circle of Champion awards; the most recent of which was presented in 2018 where the car achieved 232 points.

Today, the runabout still shows in wonderful condition and is a real joy to drive. Tidy from stem to stern, the bodywork shows in good order with glossy paint while the judicious use of wood in the interior (and even the artillery wheels) have remained in fine order. This Packard is certainly a wonderful classic that will surely be enjoyed on many more tours and show fields.
