Your "Elegant Exit" Car...
Our 1939 Packard is a previous “Two Owner” car with original paint, and the car is originally from a Hyde Park New York dignitary. (In 1939, factory prices began at $2,790 which was a great deal of money for the time.) We enjoy driving this very same car today!
A bit of history...
Packard is the name of one of the world’s most prestigious and honored automobiles. Owners of Packards realize the proud distinction in possessing an automobile of rare and unequaled heritage. For nearly sixty years, Packard reigned unchallenged as “The Soft Spoken Boss of the Road” - the supreme combination of all that is fine in motorcars. Also known as “America’s Rolls Royce”, Packard established a reputation of ultimate quality from 1899 to 1958.
The Packard began it’s life in the early 1890’s when Ward Packard first got the idea to build a motor car. In 1903 the Packard Motor Car Company was formed. By 1909, Packard was one of the major automobile manufactures in America.
Inside, a modern art deco dashboard upgraded the already elegant interior.
“Packard - A History of the Motor Car and the Company” wrote that Hugh Hitchcock, Advertising Manager, noted in 1939 “that among personages identified as Packard owners were three Kings, one Queen, two Sultans, four Princes, three Princesses, Two Royal Courts, fifteen Cabinet Members.... and officials of thirty-nine other countries.”
Even though Packard was the luxury automobile of the day, turn signals had not been introduced yet, brake lights, or side view mirrors!
Packard was an American luxury-type automobile marque built by the Packard Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan, and later by the Studebaker-Packard Corporation of South Bend, Indiana. The first Packard automobiles were produced in 1899, and the last in 1958.
Today, our Packard is used in Bridal Portrait sessions, and wedding day photos. A vintage car is quite the current trend especially as the couple leaves their reception...a great "get away car"!
Also known as “America’s Rolls Royce”, Packard established a reputation of ultimate quality from 1899 to 1958.
The Packard advertising song on the radio had the words: Ride ride ride ride ride along in your Packard, in your Packard. In a Packard you've got the world on a string. In a Packard car you feel like a king. Ride ride ride ride ride along in your Packard, what fun! And ask the man, just ask the man the lucky man who owns one!
From Bridal Portrait to
