On a recent episode of Chasing Classic Cars, Wayne Carini put up for auction a 1937 115 Packard coupe.

He was hoping to get $70,000 to $75,000, but had to settle for $68,500--I believe that was the selling price.

That shows you how scripted the show is. A nice 115C coupe normally brings $25-$35k.

I believe the 115C coupe is the lowest price car ever offered by Packard.

I believe O_D is correct about the 115C Business Coupe being the least expensive Packard. Its list price was for something less than $800.

There were two models of the Six coupe body style: a sport coupe, which featured the rumble seat and a business coupe which featured nothing except a lot of space for the salesman's goods. Same for the 115C's big brother the 120C.

Did the show misrepresent the auction sale price? I doubt it, but it probably included commissions which would inflate the actual sales number. JWL

I saw the episode too. It wasn't a coupe, it was a convertible... maroon if memory serves...
