ONE OF THE ULTIMATE CLASSIC CARS!
1939 17TH SERIES PACKARD V-12 RUMBLE SEAT COUPE
Only nine of these 1939 17th Series Packard Twelve Coupes were built and this beauty, previously owned by Ken Kercheval, better known as Cliff Barnes from the
TV series “Dallas”, is one of two remaining. The second is owned by a gentleman in Huntington Woods, Michigan and is reportedly not for sale at any price. In 1939,
the end of the Great Depression with most cars selling for $600, the very idea of someone plunking down $5000 for a two seater was a bit ostentatious. Extremely
powerful for its day, a Packard Twelve, weighing over 2½ tons, could accelerate from 3 to 30 MPH in under 8.5 seconds. These elegant carriages were the personal Lear
Jet of the day, moving the very wealthy from one place to another in supreme comfort. True symbols of style and class, these jewels were the affirmation of success
and power for the man or woman who knew what he or she wanted. Features include golf club compartment, rumble seat with correct leather arm rests, complete
personalized set of luggage within rear trunk, extraordinarily rare Peacock hood ornament (which is actually the functional antenna for the factory Packard radio),
dual wheel mounts, new correct wide white wall tires and much more.
