Note: Packard Motor Car Co. built elite automobiles, and is considered one of the three great American motor car companies, the other two being Pierce-Arrow and Peerless. Packard cachet was so strong that it developed a following not only in the United States but with heads of state abroad. The Packard factory in Detroit, designed by Albert Kahn, was the first industrial structure to use reinforced concrete as a building material. This 35-acre plant produced some of the most elegant automobiles ever built. The Phaeton represented here has won numerous shows and trophies keeping alive the Packard tradition of excellence.

Provenance: Higgins Collection.
