Launched in 1935, the Packard One-Twenty model line was the American luxury car manufacturer’s entry into the competitive mid-priced market. At its height, the line offered a variety of sedans, coupes, convertibles, as well as two station wagons. The model is generally credited for bolstering Packard’s sales during the Great Depression, with 175,027 units produced over its seven-year production run.

This stunning 1941 One-Twenty Woody Station Wagon is one of a very limited number of eight-cylinder examples remaining. Number 56 of just 58 built, this Packard spent many years stored in a barn before being discovered in 2004 by the consignor, its third owner. This Woody then received a complete frame-of restoration with attention to the minutest of details, including all new woodwork, dash, and seating in factory-correct style, with NOS parts used wherever possible.

Maintained as a show car, this exceedingly rare example has accrued less than 5,000 miles since restoration. The Packard is accompanied by an original owner’s manual, shop manual, and factory catalogue. Also included are a tune-up kit and a spare NOS voltage regulator coil. With Best in Show and Best in Class AACA awards to its credit, this exceptional Packard would be a fine addition to any collection.
