Packard One-Twenty Deluxe Station Wagon
The 1941 Packard 120 Woodie Wagon was originally built by Hercules, a pioneer and well respected builder of wooden bodies dating back to the early 1920s. The company became well known for its dramatic bodies framed in light colored white ash with panels in dark mahogany.
For 1941, Packard’s entry level eight cylinder car was the Packard model 1901, known as the 120. Series production peaked at 17,100, with wooden station wagons accounting for 358 of those. Unfortunately, there is no breakdown of this number between 110- and 120-based cars.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in March of 2010 at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Florida.
120 hp, 282 cu. in. L-head straight eight, five main bearings, Carter WA1 carburetor, three-speed Selective Synchromesh transmission with overdrive, column shift and hydraulic brakes on all four wheels. Wheelbase: 127"
