History of the 1941 Packard One-Twenty Deluxe Station Wagon:
The highly prized Packard Motor Car Company was known as one of the finest American luxury automobile manufactures since their inception in 1899. The poor market influenced change amongst buyer decisions over the years. Therefore, the Packard design team met a great number of challenges and did not meet sales expectations. In order to stand out in a struggling market Packard introduce an expensive Station Wagon model in 1937, the Series 115C that featured an all-wood body built by either Cantrell of Huntington, NY or Hercules of Evansville, IN. Leading into 1941, Cantrell would be dropped, leaving Hercules as the sole provider of the gorgeous, hand-built wooden station wagon bodies for Packard. With just 358 station wagons built in 1941, these models would and are still known as highly exclusive units. Zero would be built in the year of 1942 Packard offered the station wagon in the One-Ten and One-Twenty platforms, in Standard & Deluxe trim, on a 122"" & 127"" chassis respectively. Only the Station Wagon would have the Deluxe designation associated to the One-Twenty model, as no other Packard in the One-Twenty range to have the honor. The exact number of One-Twenty Deluxe Station Wagon's is unknown, but considering the rarity of bodies manufactured, we feel only 25% of total production is a fair estimate at about 90 units. Today, due the very nature of time and ill-preservation of these special wood -lad bodies, many have already found their fate to scrap yards. The unit offered here may be the finest available anywhere in the world, having been collector owned and professionally preserved since new! Make no mistake Packard collections, this is a chance of a lifetime!

This vintage Packard for sale was delivered new from George Muehlhauser Packard Motor Car Co, located in Sandusky, OH, on January 2nd, 1941. Based on the impeccable care it has received over the years, having been stored indoors and away from any harmful elements is an easy assessment to make. It would later travel into the Bryn Mawr, PA area by the 1970s finding itself in the hands of an avid car collector, Alex Yarnell Jr, and stayed with him up until 1984. It would then be sold to J. Leo Barry of Syracuse, NY that August for two decades. Again, always preserved and stored properly among a beautiful pre-war car collection, in which by 1986 would be in Peterborough, New Hampshire at his new home. A perfect setting for a stunning 1941 Packard One-Twenty Deluxe ( woodie) Station Wagon such as this!
The St. Louis Car Museum would be lucky enough to purchase the collection from Mr. Barry in 2004. It is still driven regularly enough to keep it top running capacity, but only for short distances on the nicest of days. High octane, low lead fuel preserves the fuel system and carburetor beautifully. A battery disconnect, hidden discretely under the front seat, protects the battery during times of storage. An owner's manual, ownership history back to 1979, and extra keys will be included in the sale of this 1941 Packard One-Twenty Deluxe Station Wagon, making this vintage Packard a sound, ready to drive, investment!
