Originally from the area of Bennington, Vermont, this 1929 Packard Phaeton had been stored from the mid-to-late 30's until 1961 when it was bought by someone from Wisconsin. After coming out of storage, it was driven to the Classic Car Club of America meet in Buck Hill Falls, Pennsylvania, and then to Wisconsin where the top was replaced and the exterior painted in 1962.

The Phaeton was bought by the present owner's father in 1979 when it had just 15,000 original miles on it. He drove it to many events throughout New England and displayed the car at Owls Head Transportation Museum in Rockland, Maine and at Sturbridge Museum, Sturbridge, Massachusetts.

The current owner, who has placed the car at WAAAM on loan, has had the car since November 2003. It now has just over 30,000 original miles.

Mechanically original, the only work done on the car (beyond routine maintenance) has been the aforementioned top and paint and a bit of interior work.
