Burgundy/silver 1936 Packard 120 Sedan Inline 8 3 Speed Manual
Gateway Classic Cars is proud to present this elegant 1936 Packard 120B Sedan at our Milwaukee location.
The Packard had an astonishing run from 1899-1956. Starting out as a small company where only 400 Packard’s were manufactured from 1899- 1903. Even with those low numbers, Packard had caught the attention of rich investors due to its superior build quality and reliability. In 1902 the Packard Motor company was off and running. Sold to wealthy purchasers in both the United States and European markets. As a matter of fact, Packard sold twice as many cars abroad than any other U.S. manufacturer. Competing with such names as Mercedes Benz and Rolls-Royce.
This 1936 Packard 120B was designed to enter the competitive mid-sized eight-cylinder market during the great depression. Sharing the market with such models as the Lasalle and Lincoln- Zephyr.
Packard introduced independent front suspension for the first time on the 120B. The 1936 Packard 120B was manufactured as two-door, four-door and convertible models.
Powered by a 282 cubic inch L-head inline eight powerplant with all-new Packard aluminum heads, attached to a three- speed manual transmission.
This combo made for a car capable of reaching a top speed of 85mph. From its elegant burgundy/silver paint job, color-keyed wheels and wide whitewalls and distinctive Packard grille makes this automotive legend screams “classic class”. Open the suicide doors and take in the elegant velour seats which looks more like a parlor than a cars’ interior.
This Packard 120B is a fine example of an unmolested treasure of a time gone by.
