1934 Packard 1108 Twelve Dietrich Convertible Victoria shown by Joseph & Margie Cassini III

The Packard Twelve is considered to be one of the finest automobiles produced by Packard and one of the most significant creations of the Classic Era. From 1933 to 1939 with over 35,000 examples were produced, and most of these Twelves received factory bodies. Just a handful received custom coachwork by such greats as LeBaron and Dietrich.

This unique example has semi-custom features including the distinctive Raymond Dietrich-styled teardrop fenders. Dietrich used a Custom Victoria body as a starting point for the design, which was built by Packard as an in-house special.

The car was in the hands of Joseph and Margie Cassini when it was named Best of Show in 2013, and it is now in the care of Rob and Kim Coretz.
