31 & 32 Murphy bodied Packard

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know or have a photo of 31 or 32 Murphy bodied Packard roadster. There was drawings done, but were they built? Saw a book that mentioned Earl Anthony ordered Murphy bodies for touring and roadsters in 1932 but have never seen a photo of the roadsters. Murphy was closing his doors then, maybe they were not done.

Check with the Lincoln guys, if I remember correctly they built one or two on the Lincoln platform. Ed

I don't think that the 32 Packard roadster was actually ever built. There is a 32 Twin Six convertible sedan that still exists, but it is an earlier style. There were a couple of other cars done by Murphy in 32 before the doors were closed. Someone else tried to take over but failed. Bohman and Schwartz were key employees who set up shop down the street after Murphy closed. The early B & S cars are sometimes mistaken for Murphy because the same guys were building them using the same patterns.
