The 1953 Packard Executive Limousine by Henney featured here is one of 100 built and comes finished in stunning Meridian Blue Metallic over a blue interior. This particular example was acquired by the United States Secret Service and was used during the 1953 and 1957 Inaugural Parades for President Dwight D. Eisenhower and the 1961 Inaugural Parade for John F. Kennedy. This Packard was retired from duty in the early 1960’s and was then acquired by the Hotel Bellevue in the heart of Washington D.C. Under the hotel’s ownership, it was used to transport numerous senators, congressmen, government officials and two future U.S. Presidents around the U.S. Capitol. More recently this couch built Packard resided in a private collection in Germany until it was acquired by a Packard collector in the United States in 2014. It presents wonderfully today, wearing dual U.S. Flags on the front fenders and the U.S Presidential Seal on the rear doors. The odometer displays 35,007 miles – a number which is believed to reflect the actual mileage since new and lines up with the vehicles history of being driven short distances most of its life. We are proud to offer this 1953 Packard Executive Limousine by Henney to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates this incredibly rare post-war coach built Packard with outstanding provenance.

History of the Henney bodied Packards
The Henney Motor Company, originally Henney Carriage Works, was founded in the mid-1800s by Jacob Henney. The company had successfully transitioned into motorcar coachwork in the early 1920’s and by the 1930’s it was one of the country’s most sought after coachbuilders for marques such as Cadillac, Lincoln, Pierce-Arrow and Packard. After the WWII Henney and Packard offered several stylish offerings including some one-off show cars including the famed 1952 Pan American for the 1952 New York Auto Show which inspired the Packard Caribbean for 1953. Packard with Henney reintroduced the long-wheelbase limousine also 1953 with a 149 inch wheelbase and two lavish offerings; a Corporate model and an Executive model, the latter of which only had 100 examples produced. Both cars were referred to as the “Henney Corporate Models” and were only available on a special order basis. These hand-built coaches were finished in Henney’s Freeport, Illinois facility and were lavishly appointed with amble seating for eight passengers thanks in part to rear fold away jump seats. Perhaps unsurprisingly many of these 1953 coaches were purchased by the U.S. Government for official use and examples of which are seldom seen today.
