For sale in our Detroit Showroom is this highly rare 1925 Packard Model 136 Opera Coupe. Packard vehicles were highly competitive in the highly priced American luxury car market and were known for their well designed and built engines. This 1925 Packard retains its original 357.8 cubic inch straight eight engine which produces 84 horsepower and was the engine that replaced the previous Packard V12. Backing up the large engine is the original 3-speed manual transmission with floor shifter. This Packard is in good condition and is a fantastic driver with great potential to be a mint vehicle. The Black and Blue paint on the vehicle was re-done at some point and shows very well on this big fender Packard which is matched well with the red pin striping, the large polished headlights, and the rear mounted full-size spare. The outside of the vehicle is matched very well to the interior of the car in black leather and is also in good original condition. This 1925 Packard was owned by Harrahs National Automobile Museum from 1966 through 1984 and there is documentation showing a detailed description of condition and options from the time that it was purchased. This 1925 Packard Opera Coupe is a great 20s classic that is ready for years of enjoyment.

Our Detroit Showroom opened its doors in June of 2013 and is the fourth addition to Gateway Classic Cars. Detroit has been dubbed as the "Motor City Capital of the World" and has earned that title by being home base for American automobile manufacturers such as General Motors, Ford Motor Company and Dodge/Chrysler. Detroit is also home to the largest automotive gathering in the world, The Woodward Dream Cruise which is hosted annually on the 3rd weekend of August.
Our Detroit Showroom is located in historic "Ford Country" just footsteps from the Ford Motor Company World Headquarters building and a short drive to the General Motors World Headquarters located in the Renaissance Building in Downtown Detroit. Henry Ford once roamed these streets with Model T's, the Dodge brothers raced their way around city roads and extinct companies like Oldsmobile and Pontiac have left us fossils reminding us of the greatest era in automotive history, the muscle car era.
