This picture can also be found in The Coachbuilt Packard; Dalton-Watson Ltd. London / Motorbooks International, Minneapolis (1973), ISBN 0-901-564-109, author Hugo Pfau, on page 108, chapter "Fleetwood". Capture reads: "This Cabriolet was built in 1918 especially for an aunt of Phil Hill, in whose collection in Santa Monica, California, it now (i.e. 1973) resides. Original cost was $ 9,000."

On page 109, there is another shot of this car, showing the right side from a rear angle. Good visible are rear details with additional shock absorbers, two very small rear windows, the special rear fender treatment, "canework" in the rear door,and very low front door. Capture reads: "Another view of Mr. Hill's Fleetwood Cabriolet. The decorative panel below the rear window is painted canework."

What a beauty...
