This sport custom was built by Bill Miller of Los Angeles employing a 1938 Packard 12 cyl. limousine chassis shortened 39 inches to 105. He contracted Bohman and Son for the steel coachbuilt body about 1955. This was not intended as a competition car but rather a boulevard cruiser. The Packard 12 has had a custom manifold with three Stromberg carburetors added. Dashboard is a full compliment of Stewart Warner gauges. Bumpers are '39 Cadillac V16 with the front trimmed. Weight is 4000 pounds. The car still exists. Photos provided by Raffi Minasian.
