It was the roaring 1980's, the "Dallas" television series was in full swing, filming successfully year after year, making fortunes for the actors involved. At the conclusion of an exhausting day of filming, the owner of the beautiful '41 Packard 120 could not wait to get behind the wheel and drive! He maneuvered the woodie passed the guard at the studio's main gate, who smiled and waved good-by; George loved seeing the gorgeous Packard come and go daily. As the wagon passed, the crowd pushed forward, putting a terrible strain on the stanchions holding the red velvet ropes that separated the curious from the celebrities. The wagon's owner was in a hurry to get the Packard out on the open road with its powerful 8 cylinder engine and silky smooth Aero-Drive overdrive transmission! The flawless dark green paint glistened in the late afternoon sun and contrasted beautifully with the impeccably varnished new ash wood body. The woodie sped north on Highland Ave. and accelerated briskly onto the Hollywood freeway for a short drive to his home in the Hollywood hills.
This 1941 Packard 120 was celebrity owned for years. Later sold and underwent a complete restoration in the late 90's by Custom Auto Service in Santa Ana (a prestigious Packard restoration service). The dark green paint goes beautifully with the perfect, glove soft, factory correct, saddle colored, leather interior seating. The smooth running straight 8 engine and trans purrs like a kitten at freeway speeds. The Packard features many factory options including radio and heater and the flawlessly smooth, Aero-Drive transmission. This gorgeous Packard has won many first and second place awards at concourse events throughout the Southland.
