Finishing up with the Packard contingent of dual cowl phaetons, my idea of the ultimate in red carpet cars, here is a 1934 Twelve, owned by Brad and Kellie Janousek of Bellevue, Michigan, that was on display at the Concours of America. Back in the classic era, when many, perhaps most of the most expensive cars had custom coachbuilt bodies, or at least catalog customs supplied by the automaker, the automakers themselves established brand identity with the way the front of their cars were styled. That’s why the shape of radiator shells and grilles became so important. That was one styling element that remained the same on Packards from 1905 to the last “real” Packards in 1956.  Stay tuned for more dual cowl phaetons from other American luxury marques like Lincoln, Cadillac, Duesenberg and Chrysler’s Imperial brand.
