On Saturday, October 29, 2011 a beautifully preserved 1939 Packard 120, recently donated to WAMU 88.5, will be sold to the highest bidder at the CapitalAutoAuction.com weekly public auto auction.

The donated 1939 Packard 120 boasts everything from its original engine to the original dealer brochure. In addition, the classic car has been thoroughly examined by professional mechanics and is in running condition.

It is not uncommon to see classic cars such as the 1939 Packard 120 selling at Capital Auto Auction’s weekly public auctions. “In fact, so far this month we have had some really fantastic classic cars come through the auction lanes – a 1967 Pontiac Firebird, a 1979 Pontiac Transam and a 1965 Ford Mustang – just to name a few”, said Reid Zaritsky, logistics manager at Capital Auto Auction.

To view the 1939 Packard 120 in person before it goes to auction, interested parties can visit Capital Auto Auction any time Tuesday - Saturday from 9:00A.M. - 4:00P.M.
