Wasn't there a 1929 Packard 633 recently auctioned on either Mecum or Barrett Jackson?

Does anyone know what it sold for?

The hammered bid was for $95,000. Commissions added on top of that amount.

Justification for the bright orange and brown choice is cited as an period advertisement art which the owner had.
Advertising artist frequently took 'artistic license' with not only proportions but also colors which would grab attention on the page but weren't generally available. Bets are driving around in a bright orange roadster would have made you the talk of the town in 1929...
