[column grid=”2″ span=”1″] The 1936 Senior Series was slightly modified from the 1935 model by a five degree slope to the front grille assembly. Production for this specific car is estimated at somewhere between five to ten. This specific car was exported to Russia by the U.S. Government to be used by Joseph Stalin. In 1990 this Packard was shipped to Germany for restoration. Three years later it was shipped to John Scales an American restorer for more restoration which took two years and was paid for by the Russian Government.

This car was in the 2004 and the 2013 Rose Parade and is frequently requested in local parades.
