Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1916 Packard Twin Six Typhoon For Sale.
This Series One Packard Twin Six was first owned by an Australian, and was originally fitted with a tourer body. Returning to England in the 80’s and being laid up until purchased by the current owner in 2012.
With the body being unusable he decide to set about recreating the ‘Typhoon Body” from original pictures, only making subtle changes to please the eye.
The result is truly remarkable with a huge open wheeled racer that looks fit for Goliath. The overall condition is exceptional with not even a drip of oil on the 6950cc, 3” bore, 5” stroke engine.
The engine is mounted to a 3-speed gearbox and an overdrive addition on 2nd and top gears allowing an increased top speed and taking the strain from the engine, the Typhoon really is a pleasure to drive on the road with a more than acceptable cruising speed as well.
The dashboard is made from beautifully varnished wood adorned with period Jaeger instruments and three switches for fuel, ignition and overdrive.
The front seats are finished in period styled button leather with the drives seat fitted to adjustable rails.
Removing the rear compartment cover unveils a beautiful single rear seat, covered with the same button leather, there is also a selection of tools and a custom fitting cover.
The car have been loved and used in various events including Beaulieu, Prescott and even took 4th place (out of 200) in the 2017 Brooklands Double Twelve Event.
In our showroom and ready for viewing.
