In this week's edition of the eBay ride of the day, we present to you an extremely rare Packard, the 12-cylinder 1936 Model 1407 Opera Coupe. Only 10 of these have ever been made and only four remain, hence the high list price at $179,900.
John R. Bond, founder of Road & Track magazine, once wrote that this car was “far quieter and smoother than a Duesenberg, rivaling the refinement of the Cadillac V16 and rated superior to the finest Old World contemporaries. For my money give me a V12 Packard every time—a car, in my opinion, superior to the Phantom III Rolls-Royce.”
Crevier Classic Cars is selling the car, which has 87,685 miles and was originally listed at $3,990. It's price has only had a minor increase since November 30th, 1935.
