"During our recent visit, solely elevated at the entrance was the 1924 Packard Single-6 Touring of Emilio Aguinaldo (1869-1964), to commemorate the General’s 150th birth anniversary. Though horse drawn carriages were the norm during the time of the Revolutionary Government, Aguinaldo obtained the Packard at a later date. This particular model was the favorite of the Russian czar and his family."

Well, at least the Packard Single Six Touring is true. Acc. to this source it is a model 233, owned by the above mentioned Filipino president as a private citizen.

But favorite of the Russian czar and his family? I don't think so. The last Emperor of Russia was executed in 1918 by Bolsheviks.

Mal, I was just going to say something about the relationship between you and the Ford A but then realized, that we're stuck in a time loop for 8 years.

Gerd,

I've been reading a lot of crime novels lately, it's what I've been doing under lockdown restrictions with COVID, your detective/investigative work is admirable and could easily grace the pages of those publications! Or a very good memory or filing system?

Two Philippine presidents - one Packard
"The Japanese government during its occupation gifted the 1942 Packard Custom Super Eight One-Eighty Limousine to Jose Laurel (1891-1959). This luxury car was lined with the best fabric, leather and wool – a first..
It was hard times when Sergio Osmeña (1878-1961) assumed the post immediately after the devastation brought by World War II, which led him to utilize the previous president’s car, which was discovered undamaged within the Malacañan complex."

That how it goes when a senator, congressman and future president puts in a good word for a Darrin bearer...

Commonwealth of the Philippines
Supreme Court
Manila

February 9, 1942

Mr. Jitaro Kihara
Japanese Consul General
Manila

My dear Mr. Kihara:

The bearer is my friend, Mr. Nicasio Yatco, whom I am introducing to you. He would like to claim his car which was commandeered in Bulacan, Bulacan, last January 1, 1942 by Colonel Yamaguchi. The make of the car is Packard “6” 5-passenger sedan, motor No. C-43780 with plate No. 1-5332 (Manila). The car is being used by the Colonel in Balintawak. Will you kindly see what you can do for him.

Thanking you for whatever attention you may give to this matter, I am

Sincerely yours,

Jose P. Laurel

Fascinating story and gorgeous Darrin! I nearly bought one just like in black when I was 18 years old for $18,000 but sadly did not. One of several Packards that “got away” and for which I have regrets!
