Still born 1999 Packard concept would have included OHV V-12, AWD, and a high concentration of aluminum components. Alas, not to be.

1949 Packard Custom 8 Limousine.

It is reported that fewer than 50 of these sleek Packard limousines were manufactured. These custom limousines were only built for special customers and Harry Truman is said to have had one of these eloquent automobiles.

This beauty of a classic Packard limo for sale from Sunset Classics is number 2250-2005 which means it was the fifth limo built, and by one Packard aficionado it is the earliest known Custom Eight Limo. Cars number 2250-2001 and 2250-2002 were sent to the White House for Presidential motor cars. As a mater of fact, late in 1949 five more 2250 limos went to White House service so this may have been one of them!
