THE PACKARD TWELVE

The Packard Eleventh Series V12 is a quintessential American classic of the early 1930s. On the one hand, the leading manufacturers of the day competed to see which could be declared "King of the Hill" when it came to the multi-cylinder luxury car market. Cadillac, Auburn, Franklin, Lincoln and Pierce-Arrow all brought out 12-cylinder models in the early to mid-1930s, just as the Depression took a stranglehold on the world's economy. As Packard was generally acknowledged to have marketed the world's first production V12 with the 1916 "Twin Six", when their later twelve was introduced in 1932, it quickly became a standard by which others were measured. Its 67° V-block gave it the kind of smooth balance expected of a Packard and indeed when standing by one at idle, it may be difficult to discern if it is running or not, such is its level of refinement.

On the other hand, Packard styling for 1934 was a fleeting moment of perfection as industry priorities were changing rapidly. The market was demanding quieter smoother riding cars and drivers were expecting cars with lighter steering and better brakes. Wheels began to shrink – the stately 20" quickly gave way to 17" wheels and fenders gained skirting to hide the empty space as wheels shrunk. Up to 1934, the bodies were basically designed for the earlier 1930-32 era cars and the fenders and noses were changed to blend the two, somehow managing to retain the early 1930s elegance.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This handsome and rare Packard 12 club sedan is generally regarded as the best looking of the variety of closed four door bodies Packard offered. The close coupled bodywork gives the car a pleasing stance when set on the long Twelve chassis. This example, a long time part of a midwestern collection, is a well looked after older restoration. The Packard presents nicely in the striking, but period correct, paint scheme. Though seldom seen today, this was a Packard factory color that let the world know you could afford the best!

This rare 1934 Packard has been recently serviced and is reported to be a strong runner with the excellent road manners one expects from the model. Today, this Packard represents a stylish and affordable entry point into one of the most exclusive American classics, the 1934 Packard Twelve.
