Steve Mills’ 1926 Packard 420
When owner Steve Mills imported this 1926 Packard from the United States in 2010, it was both derelict and fire damaged. A full nut and bolt rebuild of the engine and chassis was Steve's first task. But after completing this, he had an important question to answer: what body style should the car should adopt? Taking inspiration from the work of French Carrosserie Henri Labourdette, who produced some of the most elegant 'Torpedo' bodied cars of the 1920s, Steve - an accomplished boat builder and restorer – then spent the next four years hand crafting the Packard's exquisite body using original techniques. Simply stunning.
