Packard’s 145.5-inch wheelbase Deluxe Eight was aimed at the discerning customer. Long wheelbase Eights of the era were typically draped in coachbuilt bodies, whether supplied by an independent builder, or in Packard’s case, their unusually complete factory catalog of custom bodywork as well.

As befitted what was America’s largest luxury car maker, Packard offered a complete lineup of cars. The Seventh Series Deluxe Eight was its top offering, available in 11 semi-custom and individual custom factory bodies; among those, the dual cowl body type 451 was the absolute pinnacle.

This Dual Cowl Sport Phaeton was delivered October 15, 1929, likely to someone who wouldn’t have been able to afford it two weeks later. The new line of Eights was marked by important design and engineering changes, most notably the Custom’s longer wheelbase and a 4-speed transmission. A Detroit Lubricator updraught carburetor, plated, rounded headlamps, Watson Stabilizer shock absorbers, new gauges and thermostatic radiator shutters made identification easy. The big, incredibly well-built 384.8 CI engine was factory rated at 39.2 HP and modern dyno tests have revealed about 75 HP, but the long-stroke Eight has been shown to deliver a massive 350-plus-ft-lbs of torque.

In the late 1970s, Ontario Packard collector Preston Featherstone purchased this 745 from a San Diego owner, and brought it home for refurbishment. His efforts landed him at Meadow Brook in 1993, and subsequent events elsewhere in North America before passing along stewardship to a private collector.

Dual Cowl Phaetons have always been the most sought-after of Full Classics. Equipped with dual spotlamps, dual sidemounts, Martin Whitewall tires and Pilot-Ray driving lamps, this immense, powerful and imposing Packard has kept a low profile since participating at the 1999 Packard Centennial Celebration in Warren, Ohio, and the 1999 Old Car Fesitval in Dearborn, Michigan, and the 2006 Packard Nationals in Detroit.
