Oh, Dear. Chauffeur Perkins Says I Really Need A New Motor And Has His Eyes On This 1932 Packard Twin-Six !!!



A Dietrich-Bodied Packard fit for “The World's Greatest Entertainer”.
Al Jolson was a Rock Star, decades before Rock and Roll was invented.
“The World’s Greatest Entertainer” was, at the height of his career,
America’s best-paid performer, and thus could afford to drive
any automobile on the market.
In 1932, Jolson took delivery of a Dietrich-Convertible, Sedan-Bodied,
Twin Six Packard, reportedly one of just two such cars created.

Chauffeur Perkins drives Zephyrinus to Sunday's Missa Cantata in the local village.
As can be seen, the current Zephyrinus Charabanc needs replacing.
Perkins has evidently got his eyes on the quality 1932 Packard (see, above).

  1. My father had a Packard, but it was only a straight 8. The old American axiom was "The richest man in town always had a Packard." They also competed with Rolls-Royce ("The best car in the world") for the most confident advertising slogan: Ask the man who owns one.

  2. Thank you, The Rad Trad, for your welcome Comment. I'm sure that your father would approve of this Packard Twin-Six.

    As they say in South London: "It's a tidy Motor".
