Packards Waiting - The Lindbergh Parade


Grandpa

Recommended Posts

A group of mostly new open Packards, gathered as parade cars for the 1927 Charles Lindbergh parade in Los Angeles. In the group are touring cars (5 & 7 passengers)with (and without) rear windshields attached to the back of the front seats, phaetons, and a couple of dual cowl phaetons with sidemounts (on the left).

Packard fans may want to add comments on the models shown.

How cool would it be to have this as your Packard collection? I have seen film of Charles riding in the parade, this is cool, thanks for posting.

Grandpa,

Do you know the story behind the pictures? I am curious as to why only Packard cars were chosen to use in the Lindbergh parade, and how did they come up with so many open models. I can’t imagine there was this many open Packard’s sitting on dealer lots, so did they recruit the owners of open Packard cars in the area?

That's quite a picture! Thanks for posting. I'm sure that would be an expensive accident! Never seen so many dual cowl pehatons in one spot.
