Packard goes home at Coys sale

Classic & Sports Car – Packard goes home at Coys sale

It's not unusual for classic cars to travel across the globe as they're passed from owner to owner – especially when they are over 80 years old!

But not so this 1937 Packard 115C Convertible Coupe, which will cross the block at Coys' Syon Park sale this Saturday (13 October).

The auction, at the London home of the Duke of Northumberland in Brentford, west London, is just a stone's throw from the 'Golden Mile', a well-known portion of the Great West Road so-called due to the concentration of high-profile businesses located there.

Being right-hand-drive makes this Packard 115C Convertible Coupe a rarity

One of these, at number 971, was the UK's Packard distributor, Leonard Williams Ltd, where final assembly of imported Packards took place, prior to sale.

Which is where the finishing touches were made to this 115C Convertible Coupe, which the auction house understands could be the only right-hand-drive example.

It is also believed that it was bought as a very generous 21st-birthday present for someone.

Discovered in a garage in 1979, it has since benefited from a seven-year restoration and has been shown at local events.

If you fancy being the next custodian, this Packard 115C Convertible Coupe has a pre-sale estimate of £22-27,000.
