In the year 1924, my family's 143 was bought by a Danish-American (Isac Heymann) who had made a fortune in The United States. Along with the Packard, he bought a Cadillac, and with both cars he returned to Denmark at the end of 1924, where he intended to settle down. However, he had not considered that the Danish tax authorities would want to have a substantial part in his quickly earned fortune.
In the winter of 1927, he was killed in a car accident (not with the Packard but with the Cadillac). The surviving heirs had no interest in the near-new Packard, which later on was sold to a man by the name of Holger Thiel, who for some unknown reason failed to register it before the 2nd World War. Holger Thiel placed his new acquisition in a garage, not knowing if he would keep it but could not dispose of it either. In 1956, the Packard was canceled and put in a barn. Thiel had become seriously ill (sclerosis) and put it for sale. Georg Christiansen bought it and put hours and hours in the restoration of the car in the beginning of the 1960’s. The ideology was clear: the restoration should be as original as possible. Over the years, The Christiansen family has had many great holiday trips in this car as it has been a very reliable vehichle. There is also a lot of space in it. After a happy summer 2004, with great trips in Denmark and Sweden, it was put on stilts where it has remained until now. The payment will be in Danish kroner, 76000 dollars = 495000,- Danish kroner.

“Chassis No 205372 was manufactured in April 1924. It is the Packard factory's longest chassis. With a drill of 86 mm and a stroke of 127 mm, the cylinders contain 5.87 ccm and at 3000 revolutions, the engine outputs 84 hp. This particular car has been owned by the same owner for almost 60 years, therefore it is in a very original condition. It has undergone a restoration in the 1960’s. The motor will probably need restoration. The paint is black and petroleum color (blue/green). Paintwork is in a reasonable (probably original) condition. The convertible top will need restoration. Leather in black, seems whole but somewhat worn and will need attention. Steering wheel comes in beautiful walnut tree. Black detachable storage box is well preserved. A lot of documentation follows with the car. The car has driven last time in the year of 2004. The km stand stated is a roughly bid. The motor can be turned. The car has Danish licensepapers and has a dramatic and well documented story.”
