Ultra-Rare 1938 Packard Twelve Victoria Heads To Auction

This ’38 Twelve Victoria is the rarest of body styles (body number 1127). It was designed by Raymond Dietrich and is only one of 11 Packard Victoria V12s built in 1938. You heard that right; this is a really rare and hard to find model. It was treated to a full body-off restoration in 2002 and remains in excellent condition. The red-on-red color combination is beautifully contrasted by the tan soft convertible top. This example sits on a 134-inch wheelbase and features Trippe safety lights, dual fender lights, Packard script mirrors, and side-mount spares. It’s powered by a 424 cubic-inch V12 engine mated to a three-speed manual transmission; the car shifts smoothly and is a joy to ride.

Everything from the exterior to the interior and engine bay is ready to be shown off and will impress crowds at your next car event. This Packard is such a catch, in fact, that it was even invited to the Packard Circle of Champions. It is also a CCA National first-place winner. This Packard, from the cars of yesteryear’s collection, is a real stunner and one such as this does not come by often. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity and stay tuned to Vicari’s upcoming auction next month.
