VEHICLE HISTORY/
PROJECT STATUS:

Sadly, I don’t have much information about the car before I became it’s owner.

 

I became aware of it via an ad in the PAC News Bulletin. It is the Packard I always looked for, and I am very proud of it. V-8 Packards are rare in Switzerland, and in all the years of ownership I only once saw another Executive, a Touring Sedan.

 

I am owning this car since 1991. Finally, it is street legal in Switzerland, and I attended the first meet at Aidlingen, Germany, on 19th/20th September 2009.

 

This car will need work in the future. I plan to keep it as original as possible but, since I’m in need of a wheel chair I still have to find a safe way to enter and leave my Packard. My health does not allow to drive it myself, as I planned to do when I bought it.


The car is registered for some time, now, and drives fine.
