Packard – 120 Cabriolet

.


Vehicle Overview

Packard 120 Cabriolet is mounted on a 1939 One Twenty chassis. In 1948 Packard sent one of their car chassis to the Vignale coachbuilding company in Turin. The same year, this car was exhibited in Europe at many of the more prominent automobile salons.In 1948, Packard, one of America’s finest luxury cars, was starting its decline. Meanwhile, Carrozzeria Vignale was a promising newcomer among Italian coachbuilders. The two came together to create the 1948 Packard Vignale Convertible Coupe. This is the only Vignale-bodied Packard. Registered as a 1948, it is mounted on a 1939 One Twenty chassis. It’s a mystery how Vignale obtained the prewar chassis, but the economy of using an older chassis probably appealed to a new firm in postwar Italy.
