Description: The Packard 115-C Six (1937); Also known as: 115C. The Packard 115-C was the company's first six-cylinder car since 1927. The 115-C was positioned as a low-priced vehicle that could serve as a companion to the company's very successful One Twenty. The six-cylinder engine in the 115-C was basically from the One Twenty but with two fewer cylinders.

Packard automobiles were not often sent to Europe due to tax laws and duties making it rather expensive. In certain countries if the car was imported as a chassis and equipped with European coachwork and accessories a significant portion of the duty could be avoided. Though not a common practice, only a handful of American vehicles were sent to Europe to receive custom coachwork. The junior series Packards had particular appeal abroad as their size was more appropriate for the road conditions. Another benefit was the engine size, which was not taxed as heavily as the senior cars.

This Packard 115-C wears coachwork by Graber. Graber was initially trained in traditional coach building by his father and produced his first automobile body in 1927 on a Fiat chassis. Within a few short years, he had become an established and award winning builder.

The Graber coachbuilder company was able to successfully combine his European flare with the Packard radiator. The body is well proportioned with chrome sweep trim that carries the line of the hood back to the rear of the car. The interior with its folding bucket seats and distinctive door panels gives it a sporting appeal. There is wood grained dash, and light colored leather interior. Outside, there are many elegant details like the custom cloisonné Packard badge on the radiator and Graber body tags on the cowl.

In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Quail Lodge presented by Bonhams auction. It was estimated to sell for $185,000 - $225,000. Bidding failed to satisfy the vehicle's reserve and it would leave the auction unsold.
