I vaguely  recall seeing a article in a 1960's Antique Automobile about a fire that destroyed several classic Packard's including if I remember correctly FDR's parade car. Any one have any further info ?

I think it use to be a J.C Taylor insurance company advertisement.

Now that you mention it I also remember the advert. However I also think there was an article about the collection, either just before or just after the fire.

Fred Ross owned the FDR car, and you remember correctly, it was destroyed by fire.

Vampira in a Packard 840 touring car, 1954.  Where did this one go?
