Packard Name And Prototype For Sale
Classic Packard automobiles are often the stars of concours and auto auctions but now it looks like there is a possibility the Packard name could be on a new car. Reuters reports that Roy and Barbara Gullickson, are looking to sell the rights to Packard along with a prototype car. Roy Gullickson acquired the rights to the name in 1995 and has a Packard Motor Car Co. website which shows pictures of the Packard prototype (reproduced in the gallery below). The new car has an all-aluminum V-12 engine and a traditional chrome grille. The sleek sedan was made in 1998 and was shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2003. Gullickson formed his company in Phoenix and had plans to create a new luxury car brand but never got the big investors necessary to put it into production. He has since moved to a small town in Canada. He is interested in selling the brand and the prototype car for $1.5 million. He hopes a buyer might put the new Packard into limited production.
