A collector’s dream
The 1937 Packard 115-C Coachbuilt Cabriolet by Graber featured here is finished in stunning Chinese Red over a white leather interior and beige folding convertible top. It was one of a few Packard chassis that were imported by Swiss Importer Wener Risch in Zurich to noted coachbuilder Hermann Graber of Wichtrach. This Graber-bodied 115-C is one of very few built new and is one of only a handful known to exist today! This Packard was previously subjected to a full restoration around the 1970’s. As one might expect the restoration is showing its age with patina in the chrome and paint work. This Packard’s very presentable condition today can be attributed to the 1,788 kilometers (1,111 miles) on the odometer; a number that likely reflects the total mileage driven since restoration. Most recently the Packard was part of a private collection in Switzerland. The custom coachwork qualifies this 115-C as a “Full Classic” by the Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) and would make and excellent showing at future events considering there are only around a dozen Graber bodied Packards known to exist today! We are especially proud to offer this incredibly rare 1937 Packard 115-C coach built Cabriolet by Graber to the most astute collector or investor who appreciates the great Packard marque and custom coachwork.

History of the Graber bodied Packards
Carrosserie Hermann Graber in Wichtrach, Switzerland was founded by Hermann Graber once he took control of his father’s wheel manufacturing business in 1924. Graber was quick to transition the company from wheel making to custom coachbuilder with their first bodied car (a Fiat 509 Cabriolet) appearing in 1927. During the 1930’s a selection of running chassis from iconic American marques such as Duesenberg, Hudson and Packard were imported by Wener Risch of Zurich who commissioned several one-off designs. Graber coachbuilt Packards were some of the most celebrated designs of the era as they successfully combined the stately American presence with stylish European flare. As little as seven different Graber bodied Packards are known to exist today with RM Sotheby’s selling a 1938 Packard Eight Graber Cabriolet for $1,760,000 in 2015!
