Beautiful and Unique: The Dalton's 1937 Packard115-C Six Coupe

Recent new members, Mary Ann and John Dalton bring an excellent example of Packard automobiles to the Lone Star Packards fleet of Packards. This Fifteenth Series 1937 115-C Six Coupe is unique as it was the first six cylinder Packard since 1927. This new 237 CID six cylinder was derived from the successful eight cylinder used in the 120 model Packards. It is also unique as the 1937 115-C was the only Packard ever to have a 115 inch wheelbase. The model identification “Six” evolved to the “110” model in 1940.

John shares some history of this car: “I bought this car from Greg Tyree in Turlock, California about one year ago. He had put about 3,000 hours in the restoration when I purchased the car. It was about 80% finished. He had health problems and sold it to me unfinished. Most of the mechanicals were finished and I did the cosmetic work. Greg is a professional restorer and has spent his entire career in the restoration business having won the President's Trophy in 1983 at Pebble Beach. He has won several more awards at many shows through out his career. I was lucky to have acquired it . It’s initial outing after all these years was at our Lone Star Packards club meet. All of the parts are original and are period correct down to the interior . I plan on enjoying this car for many years to come.”
