  16. Thank you for the feedback and questions on this controversial car. I am glad that Hoppy Decker and Father saved these documents. It really has helped provide history on Dick's Speedster. Many of us were happy to see the Hemmings blog this morning. It is going to be interesting to see what happens in Monterey. Below is a youtube slideshow of the Saunders creation "1936 Packard Twelve Boattail Speedster 904080" https://youtu.be/8wnLBrxmSbk
  17. These are the build pictures. Dick started with a 1936 Packard 1401 Roadster as the base.
  18. Dick Saunders passion to blend these parts together was just the right recipe. We are all amazed how the Dutch Darrin theory got spun into this car. Dick would be honored to know that a well known car designer gave blessings that Dicks Creation was built in Paris. Actually; for those who know Dick.....he was not a Paris Guy. Dick helped his Packard Freinds with their projects from his home in Rensselaer New York. His knowledge was very extensive because of his Packard Agency experience from Boston, Massachusetts to Albany, New York. The picture below is the start of Dick's Packard Speedster build in his back yard. I also included a picture of Dick's creation after Fran Roxas restored it. Both pictures are of the same car; pretty amazing!
  19. Below is a NYS registration from 1947 for a 1936 Packard 1407 Coupe. Dick pulled the Packard Twelve motor 904080 from this car to use in his Speedster creation. The "Saunders Special" as it was called sometimes has similar style to Alvan Macauley's 1932 Packard Boattail Speedster. He did create a real hybrid; not too bad for a home grown car from Rensselaer New York.
  20. Dick Saunders Creation is back on the auction block-Mecum Monterey 2016. It is being advertised by Mecum as (1936 Packard Twelve Boattail Speedster) 1936 Packard Twelve Gentleman's Tailback Speedster crediting Dutch Darrin as the coach builder. I remember this car when Dick owned it. The motor number for this car is 904080; I am glad to see that it still has the same motor that Dick put in this car back in the 50's. He had paired it with twin superchargers, he did love his power. Before Dick placed the Packard V-12 in this car, he had a Marmon V-16 motor with 1936 Packard chassis along with this 1929 Auburn body. He was a true pioneer when it came to Packard Hotrods. Dick would be pleased to see this car today; he was very proud of it. Attached are pictures of this car in different stages
  21. Dick Saunders 1936 Packard Twelve Boattail Speedster 904080 is going back out of the auction block-Mecum Monterey 2016. So far it is being represented as a Dutch Darrin coachwork. I not sure Dick was looking for the Darrin Coachwork label when he built this car? May be he was inspired by the Alvin Mccauley's 1932 Packard Boattail Speedster. I am sure Dick's car was much faster. I do hope the car is represented correctly-the "Saunders Special" just as he called it.
  22. Folks, Dick Saunders 1936 Packard Twelve Boattail Speedster 904080 is back out on the auction block. Mecum Monterey August 2016. Dick Saunders I am sure he is enjoying this next chapter of his "Saunders Special." As many have of you have heard, Dick was a Pioneer of Hotrod Packards. Many people got caught up in a flat head v8 while Dick was tinker with the Packard Twelves. Some of his V-12 creations were paired with twin superchargers; and even a couple of transmissions joined together.
