One mans story of his 1934 Packard,




I bought my 1934 Packard 1100 because of its originality but also because it came with a fully documented history all the way back to new. This was an early production model ordered in July of 1933 by the Packard Motor Co. of Pittsburgh, PA. It was used as a demonstrator before being sold by Liberty Motor Sales to its first owner, T.E. Frey, with 5,160 miles on Nevember 27, 1933. Mr Frey kept the car for 54 years before selling it to his mechanic and friend Frank Humble for the princely sum of $1.00. Mr. Humble owned it for 10 years, then it had two more owners before it came to me. Obviously all owners kept it garaged and preserved it for 86 years.
