`Ask the man who owns one' was the Packard advertisement catch phrase. `The Coachbuilt Packard' goes one better, as Hugo Pfau not only owns one but as a Le Baron designer, helped to evolve the Le Baron coachwork which graced many a Packard chassis in the 'thirties. In this book Hugo Pfau, de¬signer and enthusiast, describes, with the aid of nearly 400 photo¬graphs and drawings, the coach¬work mounted on Packard chassis from 1906 to 1941, by the world's leading coachbuilders in America such as: Packard Custom Body Division, Brewster, Darrin, Derham Body Co., Dietrich, Fleetwood, Holbrook, John B. Judkins, Le Baron, Rollston, Waterhouse, Willoughby, Bohman & Schwartz, Brunn & Company, Demarest & Company, Farnham & Nelson, Hayes Body Company, John S. Inskip, Limousine Body Co., Locke & Company, Walter M. Murphy & Co, Phillips Custom Body Company, Leon Rubay & Company, and W.S. Seaman Company. European craftsmen are also catered for with examples of work by Barker, Carlton, Freestone & Webb, Hooper, H.J. Mulliner, Salmons, Baxter-Galle, Chapron, Franay, Glaser, Graber, Hibbard & Darrin, Hofslageribolaget, Kellner, Neusse, Gustav Nordbergs, Norrmalms, and Van Den Plas (Belgium). This is more than a book on Packard bodywork; it is a com¬pendium of coachbuilding.
