1940 Packard 120 For Sale

“Many custom and luxury coach builders were going defunct like Auburn, Duesenburg, Essex, Hupp, etc etc which caused Packard to enter into the mid priced 8 cylinder class to gain a sales lead. Luckily this move proved to be successful as the other major luxury brands were falling around them Packard managed to make it till 1958 when Studebaker discontinued the name. The 120 was quite revolutionary for Packard as well, it introduced the Safe-t-Flex suspension system which was Packard’s first foray into unequal length front suspension that gave this big cruiser better alignment and better braking capability.”
