1937 Packard Model 120
Sedan Car for sale by Daniel Schmitt and Co. in Saint Louis, Missouri 63074
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

HISTORY OF THE PACKARD 120 TOURING SEDAN
Packard unveiled the 15th series for 1937 at the National Automobile Show in October of 1936. To raise appeal, the company heavily marketed the phrase “finer cars at lower prices.” A new 6-cylinder (internally classified as the 115-C) drew a lot of praise for its innovation and level of comfort that Packard customers were accustomed to. The Packard 120 8-cylinder models appeared virtually the same as the 6-cylinder 115 models except the interior, which was more lavishly appointed. With both the 6 cylinder and the 120 models drawing up so much interest, Packard offered an incredible array of different bodies and styles to choose from. Body style 1092, the 120 Touring Sedan, proved to be a popular model that offered practicality, luxury, style and speed at a modest price. Packard’s strategy paid off in 1937 with sales of the 115-C and the 120 leading to Packard’s largest year of production ever. Today, the Packard 120 models are praised in collector car circles, with unrestored examples proving highly desirable.
