This is a timeless classic with all the elegance and rich automotive tradition younger folks might not have ever experienced. Franklin Mint has done more than justice to the image of the thirty-four Packard it once again brings to us. This time, however, in a bold and beautiful color choice I like much better than the other two previous editions. The Sand Dune body, a creamy pastel yellow, is fitting such an elegant car. The Alpine Astor Maroon fender-work is rich and semi-metallic. The top is a wonderfully soft fabric in a warm peanut butter shade that contrasts exceptionally well overall.

Like the Convertible Sedan before it, we find the opulent silver radiator mascot, folding luggage rack and excellent detail in the engine bay. I still marvel at how well the doors open and snap shut. The front doors are ‘suicide fashioned’ while the rear doors are standard rear-opening. When all four are cautiously opened, they afford a luxurious view of the wealthy interior. You will like the wood grain door tops and the scaled craftsmanship on the door hardware, dash and instrument panel.

From the standpoint of color combination and relatively low edition numbers, this is a must have in my book and one very well done and welcomed revision.
