There are very few 39 Packards in Australia. A dozen probably got imported. They are factory right hand drive. Last year I answered an ad for a very delapidated 120 sedan. I only wanted the gearbox for my Packard speedster project. The guy selling it said he wouldn’t entertain splitting the box so I said it was worth $500 and left it at that. A few weeks later he got back to me and said the gearbox was mine.... but I had to take the rest of the car. So I went down to a beautiful macadamia farm near Byron Bay and surveyed one of the saddest sights I had ever seen. The body was completely toast. So I dragged it home and questioned my sanity and then decided it was Custom time. I immediately thought about Darrins. The grille was just salvageable. The front guards a mess, but the rear guards were ok. I immediately texted Rik Hoving and began the process of the idea to extend the hood and build a two seater roadster along the ideas of a Darrin but with a bit more elegant style. I’ve got a full build thread on the CCC But here we are after a few months of toil. Rik did me a favour and photoshopped the gaps to get a feel for the proportions and I couldn’t be happier. Still a long journey ahead but it’s definitely heading in the right direction.
