Earle C. Anthony and Lee Miles with his airplane, Los Angeles, 1935

The Miles and Atwood Special is on the trailer, and in front of it, are Anthony and Miles.

Miles was a living legend during the Golden Age of Flight. At the time this photo was taken he was the number one air racer in the National Aeronautics Association standings.

Earl C. Anthony is perhaps best known as the Packard distributor for the state California from 1915 to 1958.

this purple Packard bucks the boring paint color trend, and really looks great with the less common color choice, and it is a rare car that still has the dealer tag on the dashboard

the state of New York decided to put the ‘32 Packard that FDR bought back into use, instead of buying a new limo, for its officials and diplomats to use in parades

April 3rd, 2017 by admin

New York Governor Cuomo told reporters the Packard is a national treasure, and it’s going to be a great marketing device for the state of New York, and a parade queen for politicians who are tired of new limos

The 1932 Packard Phaeton was purchased in 1932 by Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt for his use in Albany. When Roosevelt was elected to the Presidency, the vehicle became part of the state fleet. Though kept in running condition, it was rarely used after 1942 when Governor Thomas Dewey acquired a Cadillac.

The goal is to get it working reliably and take it on the road for state events, the mail goal is the opening of the new Tappan Zee Bridge slated for 2018.

the straight 8 Packard, sure sounds great over 4 grand rpm. It’s 327 cu in 1948, now helped by a McCulloch supercharger

Jerry Miscevich saw a photo of the 1929 Packard Boattail Speedster and spent the next 20 years thinking about it. Finally, he built a replica, the same way they built the original

January 27th, 2017 by admin

And Jay Leno interviewed him

Just like Packard, Miscevich got his hands on a 626 chassis and the engine from a Super 8. Then he got to work fabricating the rest of the car, modifying existing parts and using authentic ones where he could for the next 19 years

Ralph Marano owns every Packard concept car made, save for one—the Predictor—which is permanently displayed in the Studebaker National Museum in South Bend

January 17th, 2017 by admin

Ralph is one of the premier living Packard collectors, not just in this country, but in the world. His collection numbers 85 classic automobiles, every single one of them 100-point concours quality. If you’ve been to Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, Meadow Brook or the Glenmoor Gathering in the past two decades, you’ve run across one of Ralph’s prizes at some point, and probably more than once.

The Marano collection is one of America’s greatest. And unlike some collectors, Ralph doesn’t try to hide what he’s got. The glassed-in building in Garwood is his private museum.

Among the most sought-after Packards are those with custom-built bodies, especially from Darrin. Mr. Marano said he was the only collector to own a Packard Darrin from each of its years of manufacture, 1937 through 1942.

Mr. Marano has owned some Darrins with celebrity provenance.

In 1985, he acquired a 1942 Darrin 180 Victoria driven by George Peppard in the television series “Banacek.”

In 1989, he traded cars and cash for a ’38 Darrin that Al Jolson commissioned for Ruby Keeler.

His red ’37 Darrin 120 convertible Victoria was originally owned by Clark Gable. “Gable didn’t like its running board option, and sold it back to Darrin, who sold it to Errol Flynn,” Mr. Marano said.

Show cars were important to Packard, helping to project an image of a company able to compete with the advanced styling of larger automakers. Mr. Marano decided several years ago that he would try to acquire all of the extant Packard show cars. He now owns a 1952 Pan American two-passenger design study; the ’53 Balboa; the fiberglass-body Panther of 1954; and the 1955 Request.
