That's quite the understatement--and unless there's lots more paper, am not sure it could be proved he ever rode in it. I was under the impression all of his cars were well protected. Even tho he might not have used it, his associates might so to me, seems a bit odd for an ordinary car to surface.

Such Rubbish. Quite a revelation to hear of a cheap 120B with a 12 in it.

Seems extraordinary that the man would have owned a Junior Packard at any time.

It was a 12, it's just that the other 4 cylinders rusted away!

Well since there is no reserve the price seems o.k. for the time being. He does not seem to be thinking that he has the lost dutchman gold mine, I have run into those types before. It is definitely a project car and more than anyone but the youngest of stout hearts would tackle. However it is doable but expensive. If his documentation holds up and he has what he says he has, I for one would not call the man a liar based on what is presented so far, other than the 12 cyl thing and that could be chalked up to ignorance and being blind and/or unable to count.

Notice the wood structure in the picture of the interior roof. Many people think these were "all-steel" bodies and that only the seniors retained the composite construction.

Capone never owned that car. For one thing he was in prison from 1932 until November 1939. For another he never bought Packards, like all old time gangsters he preferred Cadillacs.

I also like the "fact" that the car was registered in Florida to an address in Chicago!
